Description twalberg 1999-07-23 19:56:09 UTC
seeing multiple /var/log/messages entries along the lines

Jul 23 10:52:50 calvin nscd: 330: short write in
cache_addpw: Broken pipe

I see this also for cache_addhst (but haven't yet seen
id for cache_addgrp - doesn't mean it doesn't occur,

Not sure whether it's hurting anything, 'cause everything
seems to be working fine otherwise...

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-08-31 16:55:59 UTC
Does this problem persist after upgrading to the latest glibc/nscd
in Raw Hide? Several nscd problems are fixed there ...

Comment 2 twalberg 1999-09-14 16:27:59 UTC
no - updated to:


and still seeing the messages

Comment 3 Cristian Gafton 1999-09-20 12:18:59 UTC
seems to be a race condition when one thread is expiring an entry
whike the other is trying to retrieve it from the cache. The lookup in
the cache fails and the entry is efetched from the original source, no
harm done.

nscd is too verbose about this situation...
