Fixed In Version: corosync-1.4.1-16.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: IPC client exits in very specific time-frame of connection handshake. Consequence: Corosync receives SIGPIPE and dies. Fix: Function which is responsible for SIGPIPE (sendto) is called with flag which makes SIGPIPE handled by sendto function. Result: Corosync doesn't receive SIGPIPE and doesn't die.

Proposed patch - Handle SIGPIPE in req_setup_send

Description of problem:
When IPC client exits exactly when req_setup_send function calls send,
SIGPIPE is generated and corosync (because SIGPIPE is not handled)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute corosync without RR scheduling (pass -p parameter)
2. Execute many confdb IPC clients where each of them is tracking some key(s) and makes changes to that key(s) (or use https://github.com/jfriesse/csts/blob/master/apps/confdb-track-and-change.c)
3. send SIGINT to IPC clients
4. *Corosync* receives SIGPIPE and dies

"Unit" test:

Actual results:
$res != 0

Expected results:
$res == 0

Additional info:
Problem is NOT specific to confdb, but it's a way how to reproduce problem reliably.
