nscd internal communication problem?
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
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...
Does this problem persist after upgrading to the latest glibc/nscd
in Raw Hide? Several nscd problems are fixed there ...
no - updated to:
and still seeing the messages
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
nscd is too verbose about this situation...
