tcm bot crashing

Postby -wassup- » Wed Sep 17, 2003 7:11 pm

i am running a hybrid 6.4.1 server with tcm-hybrid-CURRENT-20030817_0.tgz. everytime i rehash the server the bot crashes instead of doing its normal stats requests. here is the log.
server_link_closed(0x818adb0)
09/17/2003 20:13
server_link_closed(0x0)
09/17/2003 20:13
server_link_closed(0x818adb0)
09/17/2003 20:14
server_link_closed(0x0)
09/17/2003 20:14
server_link_closed(0x818adb0)
thats from the error log.

Sending a gdb bt to the authors would likely get more of a result. Send it to ircd-hybrid@the-project.org

gdb /path/to/tcm-binary /path/to/tcm.core

When you get to a "(gdb)" prompt, issue the command "bt"

Paste that command's output into the e-mail.

TCM does a lot of stats requests to start with, are you sure your sendq is high enough so it simply doesnt flood itself out? when avalonworks gained some thousand clients i noticed i had it to low so it died in the midle of /trace.. The error i got was some of the same you got.. rubbish not really saying anything :)

You're using current cvs, which can be (and often is) broken. That is designed for developers ONLY.

Anyway, what OS are you running? Some operating systems (stupidly) disable dumping core files by default, show us your output from the shell command:
ulimit -c

(or if you are using some form of csh)
limits -c

its an updated red hat 7.2 system with the 2.4.20 kernel.
[irc@ns irc]$ ulimit -a
core file size (blocks) 0
data seg size (kbytes) unlimited
file size (blocks) unlimited
max locked memory (kbytes) unlimited
max memory size (kbytes) unlimited
open files 1024
pipe size (512 bytes) 8
stack size (kbytes) 8192
cpu time (seconds) unlimited
max user processes 4096
virtual memory (kbytes) unlimited

i take it i need to change the core file size? or is 0 unlimited? i have had core files appear with this set at 0 before.

here is my gdb session:

(gdb) run -n

3228 malloc.c: No such file or directory.
in malloc.c
(gdb)

i got that seg fault when i rehashed, although the tcm does not crash when running through gdb. maybe i have set the fd limit too high in the config.h?
/* Maximum connections;
* this is now shared with squid, socks, wingate checks
* XXX could make this FD_SETSIZE, but that might be a tad too large
*/
#define MAXDCCCONNS 1024

the box i am using does have 1024 as its fd limit

i just remembered that i did get errors during compiling, having to do with socket.h.

Code: Select all

i removed all the bits that didnt have any errors before them. tcm did compile thought.

System header, you can't do anything about it so you can ignore it.

ulimit -c unlimited

Some programs, hybrid, hybserv, and Sentinel in particular, will programatically change that value to unlimited, even if your system sets it to 0 (disabled) by default (as most Linux distributions do, for some unknown reason).

Here is where you would issue the "bt" command, to see what function calls were run prior to the core happening. chunk_free() looks like it may be a double-free bug, but I can't be sure without seeing a complete backtrace.

a lot of linux distros put the core file to zero for security reasons, sometimes daemons leave world readable core files with important info

Then they shouldn't tout themselves as a "developer's platform".

That information is what you'd send to ircd-hybrid@the-project.org.
