Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-326) Occasional {"error":"error","reason":"eacces"} errors deleting a database on Windows
Date Fri, 19 Jun 2009 00:38:07 GMT


Mark Hammond commented on COUCHDB-326:

Just got some clarification from damien:

(10:33:56 AM) damienkatz: it waits to get the killed message, but the point isn't to wait
for an orderly shutdown, just to clear the message.
(10:34:16 AM) markh: right - so that receive does do something important...
(10:34:44 AM) damienkatz: yes, if it didn't, the couch_server process would die.
(10:35:08 AM) damienkatz: as it would get the message later and not know where it came from,
so it assumes something bad happened.

>          Issue Type: Bug

>         Environment: Windows, couch 0.9, erlang R12B 5.6.5
>            Reporter: Mark Hammond
> On Windows, occasionally you will see errors attempting to delete a database.   This
manifests itself by 10-30% of the test suite failing on Windows.  If you retry the tests that
failed, they will usually pass on subsequent attempts.  Running the tests individually causes
them to fail roughly 10% of the time.
>  The log output shown is:
>   [debug] [<0.18650.6>] httpd 500 error response:
>    {"error":"error","reason":"eacces"}
>   [info] [<0.18650.6>] - - 'DELETE' /test_suite_db/ 500
> A slightly snipped transcript from IRC:
> (2:58:32 PM) markh: I see a number of INFO logs "Shutting down view group server, monitored
db is closing." directly before the error.  I was guessing the file may be unlink'd before
one of those workers actually closes its handle?
> (2:58:54 PM) alisdair: yeah, it's probably a race condition
> (2:59:13 PM) alisdair: where the delete is tried before the fd is let go
> (2:59:26 PM) alisdair: the reader fd that is
> (2:59:32 PM) markh: yeah
> ...
> (3:11:47 PM) alisdair: i can't find an obvious deadlock
> (3:12:18 PM) alisdair: couch_server:delete explicitly waits for the db process to exit
> (3:12:23 PM) alisdair: before deleting it
> (3:15:15 PM) alisdair: i think i found the problem
> (3:15:23 PM) alisdair: but i need a windows machine to confirm
> (3:15:30 PM) alisdair: i'll look into it tomorrow
