Description Jeff Sheltren 2012-09-27 16:04:07 UTC
I receive these errors occasionally from munin-cron:

[ERROR] Ran out of children: No child processes
 at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/Munin/Master/HTMLOld.pm line 795

I'm not sure why I get them sometimes and not all the time, but I found a couple of relevant bug reports (and patches):

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/munin/+bug/1009357
http://munin-monitoring.org/ticket/1213

I'm currently getting them from munin-2.0.6-2.el5, but I've seen them with previous versions as well.

Comment 1 Jeff Sheltren 2012-10-19 15:12:24 UTC
I'm still getting these errors with munin-2.0.7-1.el5

The patches in the bugs linked above seem to fix it for me, any chance we could get it patched in the next release?  I can provide a patch for the latest RPM if that would help.

Comment 2 d. johnson 2012-10-19 16:15:54 UTC
I will create a test build (munin-2.0.7-3) with the patch mentioned in the upstream ticket.  I was under the impression this was fixed already.

Patches always welcome of course!
