Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (AMQCPP-277) Freeze when creating multiple Consumers
Date Tue, 04 May 2010 18:36:02 GMT

Issue Tracker seems to be down so I am going to try to respond this way. I am
also having problems with ActiveMQ-CPP freezing on Windows when calling
setMessageListener. I have been spending a day or so trying to track it down
and there seems to be a race-condition deadlock occurring within the
Thread::join() function. You are not probably seeing this with pthreads
since you are just calling pthread_join. On the Windows platform you are
calling Thread::join( INFINITE, 0 ). The later uses a mutex to try to
determine when a thread is dead but as far as I can tell, the thread is
still terminating and thus some other non-mutex state variables are getting
mixed up. I haven't tried but I bet if you change Thread::join() to use
Thread::join( INFINITE, 0 ) for both Windows and Linux, you will see the
problems on both platforms.

I was able to reproduce the problem very reliably by subscribing to various
topics in a loop. It would ALWAYS freeze in ActiveMQSessionExecutor::stop ->
taskRunner->shutdown -> this->thread->join. The DedicatedTaskRunner thread
would already be terminated but the join would come back.

I fixed the problem by replacing

Thread::join() ...
{
...
  Thread::join ( INFINITE, 0 );
...
}

to 

{
...
  WaitForSingleObject(properties->handle, INFINITE);
...
}

to match the same logic in Linux.

Your threadWorker function may also be broken on Windows. On LINUX you
called thread_detach which doesn't actually terminate the thread and then
sets the state variable. On Windows you go ahead an terminate the thread and
this set the state variable. You might want to move that assignment.

Please let me know what you find out. As far as I know, this bug hasn't been
fixed in the trunk and is very reliable.
