Fixed In Version: keepalived-1.2.13-9.el7_3.1
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, open pipes were not closed properly when the keepalived process received the SIGHUP signal. As a consequence, every time keepalived received SIGHUP, two new pipes were created while the existing pipes were not closed. This bug has been fixed by using the pipe2() system call with the O_CLOEXEC flag. As a result, the number of open pipes no longer grows with every SIGHUP signal.

*** Bug 1477883 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 4 Ryan O'Hara 2017-08-03 11:20:53 EDT
The fix here is two-part:

1. Add "@DEFS@" to the DEFS in lib/Makefile.in such that the HAVE_PIPE2 is used correctly at build time.

2. Add back a few lines of code that were removed in #1429880. Specifically, the code in signal_handler_destroy():

--      close(signal_pipe[1]);
--      close(signal_pipe[0]);
--      signal_pipe[1] = -1;
--      signal_pipe[0] = -1;

Test results:

# rpm -q keepalived

# keepalived -f /etc/keepalived/keepalived.conf 
# pstree -p $( cat /var/run/keepalived.pid )

# lsof | grep 34937 | grep pipe | wc -l
# lsof | grep 34938 | grep pipe | wc -l
# lsof | grep 34939 | grep pipe | wc -l

# kill -HUP $( cat /var/run/keepalived.pid )

# lsof | grep 34937 | grep pipe | wc -l
# lsof | grep 34938 | grep pipe | wc -l
# lsof | grep 34939 | grep pipe | wc -l

Note that after SIGHUP each process should have exactly 2 pipes open. This is correct.
