Description Warren Togami 2004-06-24 06:34:40 UTC
Description of problem:
If /etc/hosts is missing "localhost", htt_server -d fails with the
following message.

Fail to getaddrinfo:localhost, 9010
Failed to create any sockets for localhost:9010 ... exit.

When started with "service IIim start", this then causes 100% CPU
usage as the htt process loops with the following.

child_tidptr=0xf70138c8) = 26430
waitpid(26430, [{WIFEXITED(s) && WEXITSTATUS(s) == 255}], 0) = 26430
--- SIGCHLD (Child exited) @ 0 (0) ---

This flaw is minor as it was only exposed by misconfiguration caused
by another system-config-* tool, however im-sdk in the long run should
be more robust than this.  FC3 Target.

Comment 1 Akira TAGOH 2004-08-10 06:29:31 UTC
should be fixed in 11.4-69.svn1833. the changes is:
 - provides the useful information on syslog why htt_server died
 - don't try to run htt_server unlimitedly, try 5 times by default.

Comment 2 Akira TAGOH 2004-08-25 09:35:05 UTC
close this then.
