I'm a developer from Germany trying to run RadiantCMS on a Mongrel
and Apache-powered server, and the processes keep dying away.
I've been roaming the archives hoping to find a clue to the solution
to my problem, but I didn't get very far, since mostly the given
environment or error messages don't match mine.
I'm using a Debian setup in a VM to test my application consisting of
- Debian 3.1 Kernel 2.4.27-2-386
- Ruby 1.8.5 (tried 1.8.4 before with same result)
- Apache 2.2.3 + mod_proxy_balancer compiled in
- Mongrel 0.13.3.4 as of today, running 5 processes
- Rubygems 0.9.0
- Radiant 0.5.2
I generate load by having a Firefox-Browser-Extension reload 5 tabs
with different pages of the Radiant-managed site each second. All
requested pages are part of frontend, the management interface is not
The following messages are from the mongrel.log file in the
Fri Aug 25 22:03:58 +0200 2006: ERROR: closed stream (very many lines
like this one)
configurator.rb:270: [BUG] Segmentation fault (once in a while)
The first entry doesn't have a crashed process related to the
occurence of the error, the second one does.
I had the Mongrel processes running in development mode, what caused
the processes to die even quicker, now I changed it to production
mode, but still the processes are crashing, though not as quick as in
development mode. Most of the time the memory consumption of one or
more processes is increasing steadily, but it's not necessarily the
one crashing first.
I'd really like to give you more details, so please ask, and I'll try
to document, but since I don't know what you could possibly need...
With very best regards,
