Inetd daemon leaks file desriptors
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:48 EDT
On a server that takes several connections from inetd,
it will start leaking file desciptors until inetd stops
Is there any more information that can be provided and also some steps
to recreate the problem?
I gets this problem on a host that receives a lot of mail traffic
and the qmail daemon is launched from inetd.
I talked to Bryce (the current netkit maintainer) and he ackonwledged
the bug and told me this was fixed on an experimental branch (so the
patch is not easy to fetch from that branch).
Inetd has been replaced in Raw Hide with the OpenBSD version.
Please reopen this bug if the inetd version in Raw Hide exhibits
this behavior, or when a patch for the 5.2 netkit inetd is available.
Fixed (again, after reverting back to netkit) in netkit-base-0.10-29.
