Billing causes SIGSEGV in Pipeline Manager. Issue occurs randomly. Sometimes after SIGSEGV, when tried to restart process another SIGSEGV occurs during startup. Usually another PM startup attempt succeeds.
Once I noticed following warning in pipeline process log:
Steps to reproduce the issue
1. Create an account.
2. Rate EDRs via pipeline for created account.
3. Billing phase 1. Change current time to time of next_bill_t of created account, with pin_virtual_time tool.
4. Run pin_bill_accts for created account ( pin_bill_accts -verbose -file accounts.xml )
5. Billing phase 2. Change current time to time of ( next_bill_t + 1 day + 1 hour) of created account, with pin_virtual_time tool.
All the above steps were performed in a perl script, so steps 3-5 generate a lot of business synchronization events almost at the same time.
It might be one of following business synchronization events cause that issue:
as those events are always found in the IFW_SYNC table in database when the SIGSEGV occurred.
