Bug #45888 Refcounting in ZTS mode
Submitted: 2008-08-22 05:15 UTC Modified: 2008-08-28 06:37 UTC
From: Assigned: sixd (profile)
Status: Closed Package: OCI8 related
PHP Version: 5.3.0alpha1 OS: n/a
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

Tony debugged this after a user report of a problem:

"There seem to be an issue in OCI8 (in ZTS mode only).  We close all
the connections forcibly in certain order, but it seems this procedure
is wrong.  In case if a connection is opened twice (using
oci_connect() with the same details), it has refcount == 2 and one
refcount-- is not enough to delete it, so this session stays open in
the process list."

Tony has a patch.  It is currently being reviewed.

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PHP better.

I wasn't able to reproduce this on Linux.  I wonder if it is related to another known problem with LOB refcounting in ZTS mode?

I merged Tony's/Sree's change that adds a loop during RSHUTDOWN and fixes the connection count globals.
