when exec "opcache_reset()" by cacheTool, We offen get Fatal error´╝Ü[25-Nov-2016 14:07:07 Asia/Shanghai] PHP Fatal error:  Unknown: Failed opening required '/home/xxxx/index.php' (include_path='.:/home/php7/lib/php') in Unknown on line 0(just on error log,not warning), then I check ZendAccelerator.c, find this code:
 static zend_string *accel_find_interned_string(zend_string *str)
/* for now interned strings are supported only for non-ZTS build */
	zend_ulong h;
	uint nIndex;
	uint idx;
	Bucket *arData, *p;

	if (IS_ACCEL_INTERNED(str)) {
		/* this is already an interned string */
		return str;
	if (!ZCG(counted)) {
		if (accel_activate_add() == FAILURE) {
			return str;
		ZCG(counted) = 1;

	h = zend_string_hash_val(str);
	nIndex = h | ZCSG(interned_strings).nTableMask;

	/* check for existing interned string */
	idx = HT_HASH(&ZCSG(interned_strings), nIndex);
	arData = ZCSG(interned_strings).arData;
	while (idx != HT_INVALID_IDX) {
		p = HT_HASH_TO_BUCKET_EX(arData, idx);
		if ((p->h == h) && (ZSTR_LEN(p->key) == ZSTR_LEN(str))) {
			if (!memcmp(ZSTR_VAL(p->key), ZSTR_VAL(str), ZSTR_LEN(str))) {
				return p->key;
		idx = Z_NEXT(p->val);

	return NULL;

it read shared memory, but I don't find read lock in function, because "opcache_rerest()" will execute "accel_interned_strings_restore_state()" function, it will write shared memory. I'm not an expert, so need your help,thanks!

Does this problem still manifest on a supported version of PHP?

Generally, reads from opcache SHM always happen without a separate lock. We only track how many SHM users there are. When opcache_reset() is called, the cache is not immediately reset, but only a restart is scheduled. The actual cache reset will only happen once all current SHM users have detached from the cache. At that point nobody should be reading the cache, and it's safe to reset it. For that reason no fine-grained read locking is necessary.
