Discussion:
/proc lost in some containers

LXD 3.6 from a snap on an up-to-date Ubuntu 18.04 server:

lxd 3.6 9510 stable canonical✓ -


Suddenly, some (but not all) containers lost their /proc filesystem:

# ps auxf
Error: /proc must be mounted
To mount /proc at boot you need an /etc/fstab line like:
proc /proc proc defaults
In the meantime, run "mount proc /proc -t proc"

#


I think I've seen something similar like this in the past.
Can it be attributed to some not-so-well automatic snap upgrades?

That can either be a lxcfs crash or lxcfs bug of some kind.

Can you show "ps fauxww | grep lxcfs" on the host.

And then inside an affected container run "grep lxcfs /proc/mounts" and
for each of the /proc path listed, attempted to read them with "cat",
that should let you check if it's just one lxcfs file that's broken or
all of them.

Hmm, running twice?

Unfortunately I've already stopped / started all affected containers.
