Description Ronald Chan 2003-03-21 17:35:01 UTC
Description of problem: When I upgrade glibc from 2.2.93-5 to 2.3.2-4, memprof cannot check memory leak or generate profile. When I fallback to use 2.2.93-5, memprof works again. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): memprof-0.5.0-2.i386.rpm glibc-2.3.2-4.80.i686.rpm glibc-common-2.3.2-4.80.i386.rpm glibc-devel-2.3.2-4.80.i386.rpm nscd-2.3.2-4.80.i386.rpm How reproducible: I have only one machine with redhat 8.0, and it ALWAYS got the problem described above. Steps to Reproduce: 01. download glibc*2.3.2-4.80*.rpm and nscd-2.3.2-4.80.i386.rpm from updates.redhat.com 02. rpm -Fvh *.rpm 03. rpm -qa | grep glibc // to confirm glibc is updated 04. rpm -qa | grep nscd // to confirm nscd is update 05. reboot the machine // I think it is safer to reboot .... 06. write a simple program with memory leak 07. recompile and link it with -g 08. use memprof to check memory leak 09. -->> cannot check memory leak or profile 10. repeat 5 to 8 11. -->> same problem 12. rpm -Uvh --force glibc-2.2.93-5.i686.rpm glibc-common-2.2.93-5.i386.rpm glibc-devel-2.2.93-5.i386.rpm 13. reboot the machine 14. recompile and link the same source with -g again 15. memprof can check the memory leak Actual results: 1. after upgrade to glibc 2.3.2-4.80, memprof cannot generate the memory leak report or profile report after running a program Expected results: 1. memprof can generate the reports Additional info:
Comment 1 Ronald Chan 2003-03-22 02:58:01 UTC
Created attachment 90693 [details] a simple program where memory leak can't be detected after glibc upgraded to 2.3.2-4.80 it can be built with "g++ -g AA.cpp" and then run by "memprof ./a.out"
Comment 2 Owen Taylor 2003-03-22 22:09:49 UTC
This basically is "not suprising" - memprof is very fragile to changes in libc; you might want to try the memprof from Rawhide ... it might work better with the newer libc.
Comment 3 David Juran 2003-07-17 11:34:04 UTC
memprof-0.5.1-3 from rawhide has the same problem )-:
Comment 4 Ronald Chan 2003-11-09 10:44:55 UTC
There is a possible workaround. Just do not let the target program end, like adding a scanf("%d", &a); at the end of the program. Then I can run memprof for memory leack checking
Comment 5 David Juran 2003-11-11 10:06:20 UTC
On which versions does this workaround work? On RHEL 3 (memprof-0.5.1-3, glibc-2.3.2-95.3) I don't see any difference at all just by adding the scanf line in the end (right before the return) to the test progran in comment #1
