Small test-program that hangs the server
Patch for freezing RLS problem
After some time globus-rls-server hangs and does not accept new connections (accept() is never called for new connections). gdb shows few threads hanging in globus_io_cancel(), which is called (directly and inderectly) from functions acceptcb(), checkidle() and rrpc_connect() .
We need the following information: 1. RLS version (It's most likely not 2.0) 2. Globus version 3. Globus IO library version 4. RLS Configuration information 5. If the problem can be reproduced, a test case (Any set of interactions with the server which causes it to hang) 6. Log messages logged by RLS (Syslog messages or from stdout if server was started in debug mode)
1. 2.1.4 2. 2.4.3 3. 4.0.1 4. >cat globus-rls-server.conf db_user ... db_pwd ... odbcini /etc/odbc.ini update_immediate true # Propagate changes to RLI quickly # LRC options lrc_server true lrc_dbname lrc1000 # RLI options rli_server false #rli_server true # Indicates this is an RLI server #rli_dbname rli1000 # mysql-database-name # Access control.

If you use a grid-mapfile to map DNs to # local usernames you may specify those instead of DNs. acl ...: all acl ...: all acl ...: all acl ...: all 5. Not sure. I think it just hangs after some time being used (couple of days). In my setup it is being continiuosly contacted by storage element for adding new lfns and refreshing old ones. It also interacts with RLI server. Which, by the way, also hangs but it takes longer time. 6. Server is started with -d and it's stdout and stderr are redirected to file. There are no messages from server in that file. Actually to find out what is going on I added few fprintf(stderr,...) into code. And I see only my messages there.
By default, the logging level is set to 0 which means that only errors are logged. This can be increased enable higher levels of debug messages. To start the server with logging set to level 3, for example, you'd do: $GLOBUS_LOCATION/bin/globus-rls-server -d -L 3 or set the "loglevel" option in the configuration file. (Level 3 might be too verbose. So, you might want to start at a lower level) Let me confirm your setup: 1. You have one RLS configured as an LRC only 2. You have another RLS configured as an RLI only 3. The LRC is updating the RLI and these two are the only RLS servers in your setup. 4. You're (continuously ?) adding mappings to the LRC. (I don't understand what you mean by refreshing old LFNs. Mappings continue to exist in the LRC database until explicitly deleted) I'll try to duplicate this setup and see what happens. Some additional details might help: 1. What database are you using? MySQL ? 2. What's the approximate number of lfns/mappings in the LRC? 3. How do you update the LRC? a. Are you using the client (globus-rls-cli) provided or the RLS C/Java API? b. Do you create a new connection per new LFN added and close it when done or have a long standing connection? c. How often do you add a new lfn? 4. How many fds are in use by the server? You can check this with the "lsof $GLOBUS_LOCATION/bin/globus-rls-server | wc -l" command.
1. Yes. 2. Yes. 3. Yes. 4. Yes and No. Setup is usually left alone for few days without new files coming in. So there are no new mapping appearing in LRC. But internal design of other parts is such that it continiously registers same mapping into LRC approximately every 10 minutes. 1.

My code uses C API. One connection per mapping. 4. I can't answer that question right now. Frontend is down and I can't login as root. Currently it has 1 listening TCP socket and 2 in CLOSE_WAIT state. I'll try to get more information later while it is running and after it hangs.

I've had this setup running without any problems for a few days now. Do you have any new information to add? It might be a good idea to also attach your code that uses the RLS API.
The code is a bit too complicated to be attached. But I have some advances. My setup was: 1. LRC server 2. My server, which registers periodically lfn-pfn mapping into LRC through RLS API and accepts requests from clients through globus_io. 3. My client which can query both RLS and my server for available information. After some time both LRC server and my server stoped responding to my client. Some additional debug output showed that in both even globus_io accept callback was never reached. So I tried gdb. It showed me that every time setup hanged programs were sitting in some unknow function. And backtrace looked like (for both LRC and my server): - unknow function - globus_io functions - program code which was registered as globus_io accept callback - globus_io functions - program code which calls globus_io So I assumed it must be something like "distributed loop" in globus_io. To break it I rearranged code of my server not to call globus_io operations from inside globus_io callbacks. Now it all works for ~3 days without restart.
I talked to a globus io/xio developer and he says that it should be ok to use globus_io functions in globus_io callbacks, provided you have the libraries built threaded. To build RLS you'd need the threaded flavors of io anyway. If you continue to have problems with your server, you could file this under globus_io, since it doesn't seem to be an RLS problem in particular. If you don't have any RLS problems in the next couple of days, this bug will be closed as RESOLVED-NOTABUG.
Today I found out that rls (lrc) server does not respond. All that time my program was registering same lfn-pfn pair into it approximately every 10 seconds. netstat show 240 connections to rls server with various states: SYN_RECV, CLOSE_WAIT, ESTABLISHED, FIN_WAIT1. I killed my executable but rls server did not recover. gdb shows it's threads hangs in: #1 0x40264f18 in globus_l_thread_pool_thread_start () #1 0x400a4d17 in globus_l_io_poll (user_args=0x0) at globus_io_core.c:3188 #1 0x0805795e in checkidle (a=0x807669c) at server.c:998 #1 0x08057020 in procreq (a=0x0) at server.c:802 #1 0x08057020 in procreq (a=0x0) at server.c:802 #1 0x08057020 in procreq (a=0x0) at server.c:802 #1 0x0805db93 in process_update (vrli=0x80a9080) at update.c:448 #1 0x080542c8 in lrc_llupdates (a=0x807ff7c) at lrc.c:367 #1 0x08053d79 in lrc_bfupdates (a=0x8091ef4) at lrc.c:212 #1 0x08053f41 in lrc_bfiupdates (a=0x8091fa4) at lrc.c:268 #1 0x40264f18 in globus_l_thread_pool_thread_start () #1 0x40252853 in globus_callback_signal_poll () and at lowest frame there is #0 0xffffe002 in ?? () everuthere.
240 connections is on the higher side. I would like to make sure your client is managing connections correctly. To test this out, you could also try (for csh) while (1) globus-rls-cli create <your lfn> <your pfn> rls://<your lrc> sleep 10 end OR watch -n 10 globus-rls-cli create <your lfn> <your pfn> rls://<your lrc> which should achieve what you want to do and check if the lrc still hangs. You should also attach your code so that I can use it in my setup.
We've recently seen such hangs on RH9 systems. A workaround is to set LD_ASSUME_KERNEL to 2.4.1 before starting the server. This is documented at: http://www-unix.globus.org/toolkit/docs/3.2/installation/install_config_rls.html#redhat9 Since this is a pthreads incompatibility it's also applicable to earlier versions of globus.
I've seen the same problem on a debian machine. But it only freezes if a new connection arrives at the same time as one connection is timed out. The followi\ng is a typical sniplet from the logfile: 21:47:06 T49156: checkidle: Timing out connection 817B3C8 21:47:06 T49156: freeconn: Connection 817B3C8 --21:47:06 T49156: freeconn: Before globus_io_close 21:47:06 T16386: listencb: 21:47:06 T16386: newconn: Connection 80EE498 --21:47:06 T16386: newconn: After setting c-parameters where lines with -- prefix are extra debug messages I've put in. It looks as though the call to globus_io_close in freeconn never returns for some reason. Note the server doesn't really hang, but continues to do lrc_bfiupdates and rli_bfiupdates: 21:52:06 T163851: lrc_bfiupdates: 0 21:52:06 T294917: rli_bfiupdates: 21:52:06 T294917: lock_get: 8068960 readlock 21:52:06 T294917: lock_get(8068960): 2 readers 21:52:06 T294917: lock_release(8068960): 1 readers It just doesn't accept new connections.
Yes. The server hangs in globus_io_close. This holds up the other connection management threads. I think Debian also ported the same changes that Redhat did. The same workaround should work for you.
No, it doesn't work. The server hangs no matter if I use the workaround or not. I attach a small program. This hangs the server in less than 30 seconds if idletimeout is set to 5 seconds (which I did for testing).

I ran this test case. For me, one of the threads got stuck in globus_io_close. This held up the other threads and further connections were not accepted. Also, connections previously queued up were also not freed. This doesn't seem to be related to the RH9 issue, although the symptoms are similar (hanging in globus_io_close) Jakob: I saw on the ivdgl list that you have a patch for this. At this point, I'm not sure RLS is the problem here. (We have to investigate why globus_io_close didn't return, first). But, maybe your patch can shed some light. Could you attach that also? Could you also let us know if this test is indicative of your workload?
I agree that it's first and foremost a globus_io problem but it would be nice to have a workaround in the RLS-server. Here is what I get if I build globus_io with -DBUILD_DEBUG and set GLOBUS_IO_DEBUG_LEVEL to 9: 18:23:20 T1101429552: checkidle: Timing out connection 83703F8 globus_io_register_cancel(): entering: handle=0x83703f8, handle->state = 4,fd=32 globus_i_io_unregister_operation(): entering: handle=0x83703f8, handle->state = 4, fd=32 globus_i_io_unregister_operation(): exiting, fd=32 globus_i_io_end_operation(): entering: handle=0x83703f8, handle->state = 4,fd=32 globus_i_io_end_operation(): exiting, fd=32 globus_l_io_select_wakeup(): entering globus_l_io_select_wakeup(): select_active=0 wakeup_pending=0 globus_l_io_select_wakeup(): exiting globus_io_register_cancel(): exiting globus_l_io_kickout_cancel_cb(): exiting, fd=138179344 globus_l_io_handle_events(): entering globus_l_io_handle_events(): Calling select() globus_l_io_handle_events(): select() returned globus_l_io_handle_events(): read, fd=5 globus_i_io_unregister_operation(): entering: handle=0xbffff290, handle->state = 5, fd=5 globus_i_io_unregister_operation(): exiting, fd=5 globus_l_io_handle_events(): exiting globus_l_io_kickout_cancel_cb(): entering, fd=32 globus_l_io_kickout_cancel_cb(): cancel kickout, fd=32 globus_io_register_close(): entering: handle=0x83703f8, handle->state = 4, fd=32 globus_l_io_select_wakeup(): entering globus_l_io_select_wakeup(): select_active=0 wakeup_pending=0 globus_l_io_select_wakeup(): exiting globus_l_io_kickout_cancel_cb(): exiting, fd=32 globus_l_io_kickout_cb(): entering, fd=5 globus_i_io_end_operation(): entering: handle=0xbffff290, handle->state = 5,fd=5 globus_i_io_end_operation(): exiting, fd=5 18:23:20 T1084644144: listencb: 18:23:20 T1084644144: newconn: Connection 83B2698 globus_l_io_handle_events(): entering globus_l_io_handle_events(): Calling select() globus_l_io_handle_events(): select() returned globus_l_io_handle_events(): exiting globus_l_io_handle_events(): entering globus_l_io_handle_events(): Calling select() You can see the checkidle-call and the new connection coming in at the same time. After that it hangs in a select-call inside globus_io waiting for new events to happen in the open file-descriptors. This is not happening because the new connection is hanging waiting for the connlistmtx (that is locked by checkidle) to be unlocked. I don't understand why it hangs here (and why there are two select calls) but the patch that I attach makes a workaround for this. The idea is just to unlock connlistmtx before calling globus_io_close and globus_io_cancel and relock afterwards. It looks like it eliminates this problem and the server is somewhat more stable. It still hangs though but now only approximately 1 time pr. day compared to 3-4 times a day before. I'm still investigating.

Created an attachment (id=406) [details] Initial patch Initial patch to fix the hanging problem, based on suggestions from globus_io developers. Alternate fix being investigated.
Sorry, it doesn't work. Our patched server eventually hung after approximately a day of running. This time at some point new connections does not seem to get an auth callback: 07:01:04 T262161: listencb: 07:01:04 T262161: newconn: Connection 80A0490 <snip> 07:05:50 T311316: acceptcb: Connection 80A0490 07:05:50 T311316: acceptcb: an end-of-file was reached 07:05:50 T311316: freeconn: Connection 80A0490 07:05:50 T311316: freeconn: Connection 80A0490 closed which is repeated a couple of times. And then: 07:05:50 T16384: dolisten: 07:05:50 T262161: listencb: 07:05:50 T262161: newconn: Connection 80A0490 after which no new connections are accepted. The problem seems to be unrelated to the previous one but the server still hangs and has to be restarted by hand.
This seems like a good time to open a new bug. I've filed this (new) problem as bug #1819
