( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Maybe you're right. I added a tons of logging just next to each lock occurrence to see at which point my app fails. I found that each time it was crashing near calling this function:
sub UnshareHash { my $reference = shift; lock $reference if is_shared($reference); given (ref $reference) { when ('HASH') { return { map UnshareHash($_), %{$reference} } } when ('ARRAY') { return [ map UnshareHash($_), @{$reference} ] } when ('REF') { return \UnshareHash($$reference) } default { return $reference } } }
I have a configuration object shared between threads which sometimes need to clone/unshare some part of it using the function above. I've changed the function to lock only the top-level structure:
sub UnshareHash { my $reference = shift; my $deep = shift; lock $reference if is_shared($reference) and not $deep; given (ref $reference) { when ('HASH') { return { map UnshareHash($_, 1), %{$reference} } } when ('ARRAY') { return [ map UnshareHash($_, 1), @{$reference} ] } when ('REF') { return \UnshareHash($$reference, 1) } default { return $reference } } }
For now it looks promising: my app runs for about 40 straight hours now. Before that crash happened after few hours at most, sometimes after few minutes. But that may be just a coincidence, i'll have to wait some more time.

But if it happens to be true (i.e. UnshareHash() is the culprit) then i assume that recursive locking is the problem? That would be a bug in threads::shared, wouldn't it?
