Description

=begin
I have a DB2-backed Rails 3.1 project I’m looking to update to 3.2, which means I have to use a newer version of the ibm_db gem. I have no problem running a server with the newer gem, but the intensive Cucumber tests inevitably result in a segmentation fault. I can detect no pattern to where the crashes occur.

I’m posting here (()). I’m hesitant because I read the (()) page and I don’t have reproducing code as required, since the segmentation faults happen in different places.

Sometimes instead of a segmentation fault, the process just hangs indefinitely.

I’ve gathered and attached logs from all combinations of the following:
* OSes: MacOS X 10.8.2, Ubuntu 12.10
* Ruby 1.9.3: p194, p286, p327
* ibm_db gem: 2.5.9, 2.5.11

Looks like I can’t attach more than ten files at once, I’ll attach the MacOS logs separately.

I also have Ubuntu core dumps if that helps, too big to attach.

Here is a sampling of crashes under 1.9.3-p194 on MacOS X:

In case the above is inadequate, the outputs of (({ruby -v})) for each version on each OS:

MacOS X:

* (({ruby 1.9.3p286 (2012-10-12 revision 37165) [x86
64-darwin12.2.1]}))
* (({ruby 1.9.3p327 (2012-11-10 revision 37606) [x86_64-darwin12.2.1]}))

Ubuntu:
* (({ruby 1.9.3p194 (2012-04-20 revision 35410) [x8664-linux]}))
* (({ruby 1.9.3p286 (2012-10-12 revision 37165) [x86
64-linux]}))
* (({ruby 1.9.3p327 (2012-11-10 revision 37606) [x86_64-linux]}))

Let me know if you need anything else! I’m definitely available to provide further logs and whatever is necessary to work through this.

If the problem only occur when using ibm_db gem, only IBM have a chance to help you. Please don't think we have ESP, please don't expect we can consult IBM product. Sorry, I don't think we can help you.

#5 Updated by Ken Gerrard over 1 year ago

Yeah, I understand, that’s what I thought would happen but I posted here at the IBM person’s insistence. Oh well! Thanks.

#6 Updated by Praveen Devarao 9 months ago

Hi,

I am now able to reproduce this issue on my system too, while running the Rails 4 test suite. I see that the error is turning out in different places during different runs. Could you kindly let me know what causes cfp consistency error so that I can see if there is something in the ibm_db driver that is triggering this issue.

Refer to this forum post, https://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/4415496#new . I have attached the trace file too.

Thanks

Praveen

Thanks
