Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-370) If the CouchDB vm is dies or is killed, view subprocesses (js) are not automatically killed
Date Mon, 03 Aug 2009 15:33:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-370?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12738390#action_12738390

Damien Katz commented on COUCHDB-370:
-------------------------------------

While I agree we should prevent unnecessary VM exits, we can't prevent them all and fortunately
the VM is designed to terminate and restart quickly. This is part of CouchDB's design too,
restarts are always fast.

A correct solution is one or more watchdog processes that watch the VM and the subprocess,
and if the VM dies, it kills all the subprocesses and then itself.

> If CouchDB dies or is killed, it's subprocess are not forcefully killed. If the subprocesses
are in infinite loops, they will never die. We need some kind of external watchdog process,
or processes that kill the subprocess automatically if the CouchDB erlang vm dies.
