The *dbus-daemon* service no longer becomes unresponsive due to leaking file descriptors Previously, the *dbus-daemon* service incorrectly handled multiple messages containing file descriptors if they were received in a short time period. As a consequence, *dbus-daemon* leaked file descriptors and became unresponsive. A patch has been applied to correctly handle multiple file descriptors from different messages inside *dbus-daemon*. As a result, *dbus-daemon* closes and passes file descriptors correctly and no longer becomes unresponsive in the described situation.

Description Siteshwar Vashisht 2016-04-11 12:06:28 UTC
Description of problem: dbus-daemon fails to close correct file descriptors. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): dbus-1.6.12-11.el7.x86_64 How reproducible: Always Actual results: 'dbus-daemon: Failed to close file descriptor: Could not close fd' messages appear in journal logs Expected results: Correct file descriptors should be closed. Additional info: This is a known bug which was fixed through https://cgit.freedesktop.org/dbus/dbus/commit/?id=07f4c12efe3b9bd45d109bc5fbaf6d9dbf69d78e

We're hitting this bug often enough that dbus-daemon hits the open fd limit (2144 by default). Once this happens, dbus-daemon starts chewing through 100% CPU time of a core until dbus-daemon is restarted. In a cluster of 8 machines with the same workload and same uptime we've observed a wide variance in the number of "leaked" fds per hour, ranging from ~0.42 fds/hour to 1.38 fds/hour. However, all machines are leaking fds over time, just at different rates. Observed with dbus-1.6.12-13.el7.x86_64.

It would be ideal if this could be fixed in time for RHEL 7.3.
