Description Ron Dilley 2007-04-02 22:51:28 UTC
While running a share crawler against a large number of servers, I keep running out of file descriptors and getting a segv while talking to MS print servers.  I am able to run the same code against large qty of netapp storage and misc. windows servers w/o this symptom.  It is probably my code, but I have looked over it several times and can't seem to see how I am inducing the segv.  I have increased the fd limit to cope with the leaking file descriptors but the segv continues to annoy.  <grin>

Here is a snip of my code (smbcd.c 899)

... snip ...
   * open directory

  if ( ( dirFileDescriptor = smbc_opendir( path ) ) < 0 ) {
    if ( config->debug >= 3 )
      display( LOG_ERR, "Could not open [%s] (%d:%s)\n", path, errno, strerror( errno ) );

    XFREE( urlBuf );
    XFREE( readBuf );
    return 1;
... snip ...

I have gone through the code six ways from Sunday to make sure the path variable is sane.  I have reproduce the segv by scanning the print server.  It segv at the same share (aka printer).

Please let me know if there is any other info I can provide (like sniffer traces, etc).

Comment 1 Volker Lendecke 2007-04-03 06:17:01 UTC
Can you run your code under valgrind? Beware, this slows it down by a factor of 10 at least.

Comment 2 Derrell Lipman 2007-08-13 13:11:10 UTC
No reply in four months.  Closing.  Please re-open if problem persists and you've determined via valgrind that the problem is in libsmbclient.
