startd can be blocked by external script
Last modified: 2013-01-04 10:38:07 EST
Description of problem:
If the script used in MACHINE_RESOURCE_INVENTORY_railgun = /path/to/script.sh never ends it blocks startd completely, because there's no time out.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. put 'MACHINE_RESOURCE_INVENTORY_railgun = /path/to/script.sh' to config
where script.sh looks like
echo "DetectedRailgun = 8
while true; do sleep 1; done
2. start condor
No error message in logs and startd waits until the script ends.
Startd prints some error message and eventually ends
