Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1669) Starting CouchDB through a psuedo_tty
Date Tue, 05 Feb 2013 23:13:14 GMT
Daniel Woelfel created COUCHDB-1669:

             Summary: Starting CouchDB through a psuedo_tty
                 Key: COUCHDB-1669
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Daniel Woelfel

CouchDB crashes when started as a background process in a psuedo_tty.

Steps to reproduce:

On a machine that you can ssh into localhost do:

ssh -tt localhost "/path/to/couchdb -b"

When the connection closes, CouchDB will be killed.

A few things I've discovered while debugging

When I do

ssh -tt localhost "~/build-couchdb/build/bin/couchdb -b && sleep 10 && curl

The output from the command is:

Apache CouchDB has started, time to relax.
Connection to localhost closed.

The contents or couchdb's stdout file is 

Apache CouchDB 1.2.1 (LogLevel=info) is starting.
Apache CouchDB has started. Time to relax.
[info] [<0.32.0>] Apache CouchDB has started on
[info] [<0.131.0>] - - GET / 200

The contents of couchdb's stderr is

heart_beat_kill_pid = 32631
heart_beat_timeout = 11
heart: Mon Feb  4 07:31:57 2013: Erlang has closed.
heart: Mon Feb  4 07:31:58 2013: Executed "/home/ubuntu/build-couchdb/build/bin/couchdb -k"
-> 0. Terminating.

This happens no matter how I start CouchDB: as a service, with the init script, with nohup,
or with the command above. I built CouchDB using the build instructions for Ubuntu 12.04 from
the wiki and using the build-couchdb project on Github.

The really odd thing is that this only happens when I start couchdb with `ssh -tt`. If I ssh
into localhost and start couchdb in the background, it will continue running after I exit
the ssh session.
