Description keisuke kuzukawa 2008-03-18 10:28:06 UTC
Description of problem:
UDP Packet duplication occurs when sendto() called within many process
at the same time. each processes are joined to different multicast addr,port.
ratio of duplication is around 0.6%-2.0% of all sent packet per 1 addr.
(verified by tcpdump)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
uname -a
Linux xxxxxxx 2.6.9-5.EL #1 Wed Jan 5 19:21:57 EST 2005 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64

How reproducible:
As the number of the processes increases, the packet repetition rate rises.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.send multicast packet with sendto().
2.capture any multicast group with tcpdump
Actual results:
when 20 process startup, each process sent 10000 udp packet.
captured 1 multicast addr with tcpdump, and received 10003packet. 
3 packets was the same one sent just before.

Expected results:

Additional info:
it never happen if sendto() called sequential.

I'm going to set up a system to reproduce this.  In the interim, if you have a
copy of the tcpdump that you captured for me to review, that would be helpful.

ping, any word on that tcpdump?
