Bug #10392 read in violite.c never times out and causes the httpd proc to get stuck
Submitted: 2001-04-18 21:43 UTC Modified: 2001-06-02 22:21 UTC

Status: Closed Package: MySQL related
PHP Version: 4.0 Latest CVS (18/04/2001) OS: Linux 2.2.19
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

Under the lastest CVS and earlier version of php/zend apache httpd processes get stuck for 15-30+ minutes in a read located in violite.c to a MySQL server.
Example from apache's scoreboard server-status:

Srv PID Acc M CPU  SS Req Conn Child Slot Client VHost Request  
18-0 14908 0/13/13 W  0.17 509 0 0.0 0.01 0.01 GET /list/artistInfo.php?&r=1478&offset=200 HTTP/1.1 

Pid 14908 has been stuck in the "sending data state" for 509 seconds.  This seems to only happen on our sessions database and at the same spot everytime.  There is about 1000 queries/second coming to this db running MySQL 3.33.36.  This bug appears on less than 1% of the apache requests, but eats apache slots for lunch requiring a restart or a kill -9 issused for each individual pid that is blocked in the read and never woken up by the alarm.  This happens on all 21 webservers running linux2.2.19/Apache1.3.19/Php4.0.4 or Php latest CVS

Running gdb and doing a backtrace shows whats going on:

Configure script for php:
./configure --with-mysql --enable-track-vars --with-zlib --with-apache=$apachedir --with-gd=$gddir --with-jpeg-dir=$gddir --with-config-file-path=/common/globalconfig/php --enable-memory-limit --enable-static

Hope this helps - thanks!

Please try latest CVS again (the bundled mysql libs were updated recently) or use the installed mysql clientlibs
on your system:

Anyway, this is clearly mysql bug. So report it to them instead.
