Subject [jira] Created: (TS-440) Traffic Server threads will spin under heavy load

Traffic Server threads will spin under heavy load

                 Key: TS-440
             Project: Traffic Server
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Network
            Reporter: Bryan Call

This has been a problem for a long time.  I created a fix for the problem yesterday and tested
it overnight.

The problem is when we remove from the enabled lists in close_UnixNetVConnection().  We lock
the lists when we add to them, but not when we remove the connection from them in close_UnixNetVConnection().
 This can corrupt the data structure.

Because the data structure is corrupted it can fail the empty() test in NetHandler::mainNetEvent()
and poll_timeout (really epoll timeout) will set to 0 and the thread will spin.

The read enabled list (Queue<>) will normally have a NULL head, but a non-NULL tail
and the empty() test on the Queue<> checks for NULL head and NULL tail to be considered
