this appears to impact only one container. stop job just sits there, and the following 6 lines continue to repeat in the journal:

The log outputs are a cosmetic bug, it seems.
But the reason for that to trigger is either a storage which path does not exists or hangs.
Is there such a storage (nfs, gluster?) which is not online or hangs?
Could also be the problem for the hanging LXC CT, it tries to sync its data on shutdown but hangs as the storage is gone?
 
Hi Alex,

Did you manage this problem? We have the same case with you. Ceph as backend storage.
 
Hi Alex,

Are your CT managed by HA?

This happen for this CT (my case ID 135) only. We tested other CT and thing never happen.
 
Yeah that was my experience as well. if a ct fails you can normally find out why by running it in debug mode; if you have the perl code bomb its because there is a setting on the ct config that is breaking the respective module (in this case, Tools.pm) which is not supposed to happen under normal conditions- the most likely cause of which is that the proxmox software stack is not in a sane state.
