once more i have to report my problem here, because now it’s fatal for our
Our System now runs QNX 6.2. It is a small DIN-Rail mounted PC with compact
flash card as harddrive.
For test only photon is started and postgrsql gets evey second a
testlog-entry from a script.
A second script runs in a loop: logs datetime, does a pidin on screen and
waits two seconds.
Thats my test environment.
After an unspecified time (a couple of hours) the second script hangs up,
because pidin hangs.
Manually testings shows this:
- ps shows a couple of processes (may be all? i don’t know) but never
terminates any more
- mount shows the mount-points but: does not terminate.
- ls /proc finishes, but ls -l /proc dies without printing a single line …
I am hopeful that anyone can ask a good question or tells me what is going
12 hours later postgresql stop its function because there are no free client
But if the postmaster dies because of this: My system dies also…
I found an entry in the newsgroups where it should have something to do with
a programming failure. I can’t remember exactly. But there is nothing
running that is programmed by myself… (except the testscripts
Mysterios is that this bug was never seen on my standard desktop system with
normal harddrive (i don’t know it the compact flah/harddrive thing has
something to do with it…?)
It seems for me, that it is a problem of QNX not of postgreSQL because of
the last point and because of the VERY strange behavior of QNX while the bug
is switched on.
I would be very grateful for every thought
