Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-2220) "/usr/bin/couchdb -b" doesn't close stdout / stderr
Date Thu, 03 Apr 2014 11:55:15 GMT
Shish created COUCHDB-2220:

             Summary: "/usr/bin/couchdb -b" doesn't close stdout / stderr
                 Key: COUCHDB-2220
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
            Reporter: Shish

"/usr/bin/couchdb -b" launches a copy of itself in the background, but leaves stdout and stderr
for the subprocess attached to the controlling terminal in the foreground

This makes salt hang when launching couchdb, because it tries to read the output of "/etc/init.d/couchdb
restart" - despite the fact that that init script itself has returned, the children (ie, the
daemon) are still holding the console file descriptors open

I *suspect* that this is also the cause of this issue -->

If you have salt-minion 2014.1.0 installed, try stopping couchdb and then starting it up with:

salt-call 'su couchdb -c "/usr/bin/couchdb -b -o /tmp/couchdb.stdout -e /tmp/couchdb.stderr"'

Originally reported as a bug in salt, but it seems that couchdb is the part with the non-standard
