Superclassic server hangs when receiving network packet

Created: 12/May/15 12:13 PM   Updated: 23/Sep/15 11:34 AM
Component/s: None
Affects Version/s: 2.5.4
Fix Version/s: 3.0 Beta 2, 2.5.5

Environment: posix

QA Status: Cannot be tested

 Description  « Hide
Listener thread finds active port in the list of known server ports and after it receives network packet on that port and processes it (that typically menas sends to worker thread). But port lock is not held between active port detection and receiving packet. Therefore under some circumstances port handle may get closed and have invalid handle value when receiving a packet. With poll() call to detect active port this leads to server (listener thread) hang in packet receive code.

An issue was initially noticed by IBPhoenix customers.

Listener thread requires serious rework in next version. Currently I just avoid hang in it with additional check.
