Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1520) Replicator does not close Socket in pull from HTTPS source
Date Thu, 18 Oct 2012 18:58:06 GMT


Robert Newson commented on COUCHDB-1520:

Tried this locally and couch seems to reliably close the sockets. Is there some other software
involved here? a proxy, etc?

>    Affects Versions: 1.2
>         Environment: Ubuntu 8.04, Erlang 14.b.4 64bit
>            Reporter: Simon Eisenmann

>             Fix For: 1.3
> When replicating using pull replication from an HTTPS-CouchDB source, the client socket
does not go away, but stays in CLOSE_WAIT forever, This will crash the whole CouchDB server,
as it will run out of file descriptors.
> This did not happen with CouchDB 1.1.
> I experimented with changing the socket options for the replicator client, though no
luck. The only change i saw  was then running with keepalive (which was the default), also
the server side (pull peer) leaks a connection. Now i am running with socket_options = [{keepalive,
false}, {send_timeout, 10000}, {send_timeout_close, true}]
>  which does not change a thing other than on the client side is leaking connections.
> To test this, you need the PID of the couchdb's beam process (ps aux |grep beam)
> Then you list all the open files of this PID with "lsof -p $PID"
> First you will see the pull connections beeing in ESTABLISHED state for a wile (even
when the replication itself is long finished), Then at some point it switches to CLOSE_WAIT.
The client side socket needs to be closed by the replicator to go away and release the resources
(eg. file pointer).
