Subject Réf. : Re: tomcat 3.2.3 hangs, AIX 4.3.3 (jre 1.2.2 and 1.3.0)
Date Fri, 21 Sep 2001 09:27:17 GMT

infortunaltely, I can't make it work on aix.

but I have successfully reproduced problem with a simple piece of code:

a servlet, at first call, runs n threads, and each of them will open a
localhost url every s seconds (a kind of scheduler), to the same servlet
that initially launch threads (following calls just print some text/plain

so, for n=50, process hangged after less than 18 hours.

I tried to use 'lsof' (suspecting some resource starvation), and it gives:

I am not a socket specialist, and just wonder if the "no PCB" line means
something intersting, even after reading lsof faq:
4.8  What does lsof mean when it says, "no PCB, CANTSENDMORE,
     CANTRCVMORE" in a socket file's NAME column?

     When an AIX application calls shutdown(2) on an open socket
     file, but hasn't called close(2) on the file, the file will
     remain visible to lsof as an open socket file without any
     extended protocol information.

     Lsof reports that state in the NAME column by saying that
     there is "no PCB" (Protocol Control Block) for the protocol
     (e.g., TCP in the NODE column).  If the open socket file
     has the state variables SO_CANTSENDMORE and SO_CANTRCVMORE
     set -- i.e., from the shutdown(2) call -- lsof reports them
     with the CANTSENDMORE and CANTRCVMORE notes in the NAME

any help ?

of course, I can give sample code (less than 5k source).

thanxs in advance

Objet :   Re: tomcat 3.2.3 hangs, AIX 4.3.3 (jre 1.2.2 and 1.3.0)

In bug #1006 it suggests:

kill -3 <process-id>

*** The bug report also says that this command is for IBM JVM and Linux 6.2
(if I remember correctly) ***

This gives a stack-trace dump of all the threads.  Looking at that may give
you a clue as to where and why the threads are hanging.
