RP/TUX 6.4, 6.5, 6.51, 7.1, 8.0, 8.1 - Request for a timeout option in restartsrv (Doc ID 772231.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 04, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Tuxedo / Tuxedo / 6.4 6.5x, 7.1, 8.x
Information in this document applies to any platform

Goal

Product: Tuxedo 6.5 RP362
Platform: Solaris 8

Application servers can deadlock while being restarted. In a current case, a deadlock condition occurs in a system
library on Solaris 8, causing the application sever process to hang even before tpsrvinit().  The hanging server
causes its corresponding restartsrv process to also hang because of the synchronous way the two processes interact
through a pipe.  And because Tuxedo only allows one restartsrv process to be active at a time, no other application
servers can be restarted from that point on.
