Subject [GitHub] thrift issue #422: THRIFT-3080: fix connection leak of C++ Nonblocking Serve...
Date Fri, 24 Feb 2017 06:56:44 GMT
Github user xiaosuo commented on the issue:
    This patch may introduce a more serious problem in theory.
    No standard defines writing to a socket is an atomic operation, so if writing is interleaved
by other threads, the reading end will end up with an invalid connection pointer, and the
following operation on connection will cause segment fault.
    In order to fix the above issue, we must turn to pipe(2), which guarantees that writing
data less than PIPE_BUF is atomic . And pipes are more efficient than sockets, because no
skb is required to save small pointers.
    BTW, if we don't set the writing end to nonblocking mode, we don't need to use select
to emulate it.
