Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 47645] httpd-2.2.12 often hangs for hours
Date Thu, 06 Aug 2009 13:43:53 GMT

--- Comment #7 from HWS <> 2009-08-06 06:43:46 PDT ---
Before recompiling and doing new tests (which I have to delay till after the
next hang), here some remarks:

> I had a similar situation

As far as I can see, 2.2.11 used exactly the same implementation, without any
difficulties. The only change now is setting FD_CLOEXEC.

I have to wait for the next hang, but as far as I remember, snoop did not show
any 'A' packets as reply to 'S' packets. If I remember the netstat output
correctly, old connections were visible, but no new ones.

>BTW, what exactly did you do to clear up the hang?

Often nothing, but then it took hours to recover. Graceful restart always
cleared the hang.
