I've just implemented test036 which mimics test008-concurrency passing thru
back-meta. Everything seems to go fine but... all testers but slapd-read run
fine without problems; (most of) the instances of slapd-read hang at some point.
Note that they don't do anything much different than slapd-search, which
actually do search the entire tree; the concurrent writes also seem to go just
fine. Only slapd-read just don't get it. The saem occurs if I concurrently run
many slapd-tester manually, and in selected cases I was able to make it hang
even with a single instance of slapd-read. The funny part is that the server
itself remains perfectly responsive. The client hangs on a select inside
ldap_int_select(); the same occurred earlier with poll(), and I manually
disabled it in portable.h to see if that was part of the problem. I've been
reading the slapd-read.c code for hours, looking for something odd. I even
thought the difference could have been the attrsOnly flag in ldap_search(3),
which is set in slapd-test while it's not in slapd-search. The backtrace below
shows where the hang occurs. The odd values of the args inside libldap's calls
are caused by optimization. I'll try later without.
I'm posting this essentially to keep track of the oddity of this problem (unless
I?m missing anythig really obvious, of course).
