- Subject: Perl failure
I have a server that has been doing back end maintenance using perl on
cygwin for 6 years now. I recently upgraded from win2k and cyg1.5.9 to
XP sp3 and cyg1.5.19 (to be fare, I also cleaned up the perl code a
bit). The script checks versioning and build info on about 600+ windows
systems. Since the upgrade, it gets thru about 500 of them ( almost
exactly 2 hours) and then:
panic: MUTEX_LOCK (45) [util.c:2266] at
/c/dist_and_install_files/source/dist2/spUpdate2d.pl line 24, <HOSTFILE>
panic: MUTEX_LOCK (45) [op.c:354], <HOSTFILE> line 277.
It hits a slightly different time and position in the list each time,
but always after approximately 2 hours. I found a few old mails
suggesting rebaseall, which I ran to no effect. The system pretty much
runs nothing but this. I've been running a version of this script since
cyg1.3.9 and never had a problem like this one.
