After using a semaphore file to reload zones in a batch pipeline, if one inserts a CDR in its input directory, the process crashes. A diagnostic file is created under ifw logs.
The problem does not occur if one removes the FCT_Zone plugin, so it looks like the FCT_Zone module is causing the issue.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Configure OOB registry wireless.reg, with DAT_Zone and FCT_Zone (right after FCT_Account) as below :
ModuleName = DAT_Zone
ReuseOnFailure = FALSE
Source = DataBase
MaxAge = 0
DistCalcMode = DISC
DataConnection = ifw.DataPool.Login
LoadZoneDescription = False
LoadZoneEntryName = False
CliMode = DEC
ModuleName = FCT_Zone
Active = True
DataModule = ifw.DataPool.ZoneDataModule
EdrZoneModel = ALL_RATE
2. Start the ifw process.
3. Create a /gsm/telephony account.
4. Rate a CDR and verify that it is rated fine.
5. Now, pass the below semaphore to pipeline :
6. Check for the ifw process to be up and running [ps -ef | grep wireless.reg] .
7. Now, rate another CDR for the same account.
8. Repeat step 6, you will see that the ifw process is no longer running, it has been stopped.
