Subject: Tests are blocking in Windows 7. With a prposed patch.
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 2.6k
Problem: The tests in Test::TCP are blocking. Sometimes get the system in state, that it must be restarted. I am using: * Strawberry-perl-5.12.2.0 * Perl 5, version 12, subversion 2 (v5.12.2) built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread * Windows 7 Home Premium with Service Pack 1 Proposal of change to Test-TCP. =============================== Attached is a patch. The purpose of the patch is to: 1) Reduce the frequency of problems when using kill on a pseudo-proccess in Windows. 2) To avoid to use kill on a pseudo-process in the test of Test-TCP. See also "A safer way to kill pseudo-forked processes on Windows?" in http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/perl/porters/261805. This is to reduce the frequency when sub stop or "sub DESTROY" is used: + # kill is inherently unsafe for pseudo-processes in Windows + # and the process calling kill(9, $pid) may be destabilized + # The call to Sleep will decrease the frequency of this problems + Win32::Sleep(0) if $^O eq "MSWin32"; # will relinquish the remainder of its time slice + kill $TERMSIG => $self->{pid}; + + Win32::Sleep(0) if $^O eq "MSWin32"; # will relinquish the remainder of its time slice + Other things that perhaps all should be changed. ================================================= In t/01_simple.t What is the purpose of "for 1..10" in this: ok $port, "test case for sharedfork" for 1..10; Can the test for "leaks" be removed? An example is: if ($?) { # It's maybe ActivePerl's bug. # http://ppm4.activestate.com/MSWin32-x86/5.12/1200/T/TO/TOKUHIROM/Test-TCP-1.11.d/log-20101221T221845.txt diag "test_tcp() leaks \$?. Maybe it's Perl bug?: $?"; $? = 0; } Tests made 1. ============= Batchfile used: @echo off set count=0 :loop set /a count=%count%+1 echo Count %count% @echo on perl -Ilib -Iinc t/00_compile.t perl -Ilib -Iinc t/01_simple.t perl -Ilib -Iinc t/02_abrt.t perl -Ilib -Iinc t/03_return_when_sigterm.t perl -Ilib -Iinc t/04_die.t perl -Ilib -Iinc t/05_sigint.t perl -Ilib -Iinc t/06_nest.t perl -Ilib -Iinc t/07_optional.t perl -Ilib -Iinc t/08_exit.t perl -Ilib -Iinc t/09_fork.t perl -Ilib -Iinc t/10_oo.t @echo off goto loop See example of output in attached file log1.txt.

!!!Only parts of the patch was applied!!! The part to shut down the server without using kill 9 was omitted. In Windows kill 9 on a process (block in an I/O-operation) must not be used. From http://perldoc.perl.org/perlfork.html: “The outcome of kill on a pseudo-process is unpredictable and it should not be used except under dire circumstances, because the operating system may not guarantee integrity of the process resources when a running thread is terminated.” I have done some analysis and ask for help. Posted http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=1021771, but didn't get much help. One of my conclusions is that there is still a probability that Windows returns 9 instead of the correct zero. One failing subtest in about 140 test runs is a little bit to high!? New types of errors seems also to have emerged. One example is: [Test::TCP] Child process does not block(PID: -xxxx, PPID: xxxx) at .. +. \lib/Test/TCP.pm line 121. t/xxxx.t ................. ok Made a second try to get help with http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=1022364. Got there a proposal how to improve “kill -9 style un-graceful exit” in win32/win32.c. However the proposed change has limitations: “This code has a race condition: if the hProcess thread exits with a different exitcode before the TerminteThread() manages to kill it. I don't know if TerminateThread will still change the exit code of a thread that has already terminated. I would suspect not, and in that case the following loop will never terminate.” If Test::TCP must use fork, at least in windows the server MUST be shut down without using kill 9. I have made a rough rewrite of Test::TCP to see if threads could be used. See the attached files. I do not understand all the applications so there are probably many mistakes! Here follows some comments to my changes. Test-TCP-1.21/lib/Net/EmptyPort.pm: “`$^X -MNet::EmptyPort -echeck_port $port” does not work if perl is started with “-I” switches. Net::EmptyPort::check_port($port) seem to work without starting a new process. Test-TCP-1.21/lib/Test/TCP.pm: Do not to know what to do with server pid! Is the pid need? In Test-TCP-1.21/t/xxx.t “use Test::TCP;” must come before “use Test::More tests => 99;” The test files: 03_return_when_sigterm.t, 04_die.t, t: 08_exit.t and 09_fork.t are coupled to the usage of fork and should be replaced by tests of the thread based solution.

The issue is still happening! As earlier stated: In Windows kill 9 on a process (blocked in an I/O-operation) must not be used. “The outcome of kill on a pseudo-process is unpredictable and it should not be used except under dire circumstances, because the operating system may not guarantee integrity of the process resources when a running thread is terminated.” If Test::TCP must use fork, at least in windows the server MUST be shut down without using kill 9. I have used this batch-file to run the tests: @echo off set count=0 :loop set /a count=%count%+1 echo Count %count% @echo on perl -ITest-TCP-1.26/lib -ITest-TCP-1.26 Test-TCP-1.26/t/00_compile.t ECHO.%ERRORLEVEL% perl -ITest-TCP-1.26/lib -ITest-TCP-1.26 Test-TCP-1.26/t/01_simple.t ECHO.%ERRORLEVEL% perl -ITest-TCP-1.26/lib -ITest-TCP-1.26 Test-TCP-1.26/t/02_abrt.t ECHO.%ERRORLEVEL% perl -ITest-TCP-1.26/lib -ITest-TCP-1.26 Test-TCP-1.26/t/03_return_when_sigterm.t ECHO.%ERRORLEVEL% perl -ITest-TCP-1.26/lib -ITest-TCP-1.26 Test-TCP-1.26/t/04_die.t ECHO.%ERRORLEVEL% perl -ITest-TCP-1.26/lib -ITest-TCP-1.26 Test-TCP-1.26/t/05_sigint.t ECHO.%ERRORLEVEL% perl -ITest-TCP-1.26/lib -ITest-TCP-1.26 Test-TCP-1.26/t/06_nest.t ECHO.%ERRORLEVEL% perl -ITest-TCP-1.26/lib -ITest-TCP-1.26 Test-TCP-1.26/t/07_optional.t ECHO.%ERRORLEVEL% perl -ITest-TCP-1.26/lib -ITest-TCP-1.26 Test-TCP-1.26/t/08_exit.t ECHO.%ERRORLEVEL% perl -ITest-TCP-1.26/lib -ITest-TCP-1.26 Test-TCP-1.26/t/09_fork.t ECHO.%ERRORLEVEL% perl -ITest-TCP-1.26/lib -ITest-TCP-1.26 Test-TCP-1.26/t/10_oo.t ECHO.%ERRORLEVEL% @echo off goto loop Running the loop in the batch-file 1000 times I typically results in: - 10 times: Faulty return value 9 from a test. - One time: Perl is stuck and must be killed. - One time: Operating system says “Perl has stopped working”. Running the test from a Perl program or using a more loaded system increases the error rate. The tests was done using Windows 7, perl 5, version 16, subversion 3 (v5.16.3) built for MSWin32-x64-multi-thread and Test-TCP-1.26. Note: Test-TCP-1.26/lib/Net/EmptyPort.pm: “`$^X -MNet::EmptyPort -echeck_port $port” does not work if perl is started with “-I” switches.
