Subject [jira] Updated: (COUCHDB-393) Cannot discover currently running http port if ini file specifies port 0
Date Fri, 25 Jun 2010 15:08:52 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-393?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Benoit Chesneau updated COUCHDB-393:
------------------------------------

    Attachment: couch_uri.patch

Here is the patch. It take couch.uri path from the configuration file . by default it's in
%localstatelibdir%/couch.uri .

It save the uti http://IP:PORT/ on one line when couchdb start. If it's ok for you I will
be happy to commit it today.

> It is currently not possible, if the ini file specifies port 0 as the http port (so that
the OS chooses a random port) to discover which port the OS actually chose.
> It would be nice if the currently running port was made available in the statusline output
(couchdb -s), but a log statement would be adequate; some way that an external script can
discover which port a running CouchDB is listening on.
> Edited discussion from #couchdb:
> <bitdiddle> aquarius: well at a glance it appears couch_http passes the 0 to mochiweb_http
which passes it to the mochiweb_socket_server, which passes it to gen_tcp, an erlang module
that lets the underlying OS assign it. mochiweb_socket_server then grabs that port and stores
it. It has a get method to retrieve properties but that needs to be exposed to mochiweb_http
so it would take a little work to do it. It's probably a JIRA ticket, unless someone else
sees a quicker approach
> <davisp> bitdiddle: you got that far and didn't find it?
> <aquarius> davisp: is there a better way to find the port?
> <davisp> oh, is that not the bind port?
>  I was just thinking a log statement
> <aquarius> davisp: the problem is if you specify 0 as the bind port (so the OS
chooses a port), how do you find out what was chosen?
> <davisp> aquarius: you have to look at the port returned by the socket
>  aquarius: in other words, CouchDB was never written to do that
> <davisp> AFAIK
> <bitdiddle> davisp: I found it, just needs some work to expose it
> <davisp> aquarius: and by do that, I mean, we never put in a statement to log that
> <bitdiddle> mochiweb_http is the module that needs to bubble it up
> <aquarius> davisp: I don't really mind whether it's a log statement or it's exposed
to couchdb -s (the latter seems tidier to me, but whichever), I just want to be able to start
couch on port 0 and then later find out which port got chosen :)
> <davisp> aquarius: for the time being you can use something like netstat or lsof,
but we'll get a log statement in there or something
