Forum OpenACS Development: A stern chase is a long chase

Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
The wd_aolserver_errors proc in the patch 231 for feature 1452 above, from April, has a race condition with the growth of the server error log. I've fixed it, and have started using the fixed version on my own systems. I didn't generate a new patch, but I did stick my whole current watchdog-procs.tcl file into new-file-storage.

One of these days, I'll actually:

  1. Add support for the -num_minutes option, so the new wd_aolserver_errors proc will really be a feature-complete replacement for the old script.

  2. Maybe do some performance comparison between wd_aolserver_errors and

  3. Actually test this in a stock OpenACS 4.5, rather than only on my own old hacked installations, and talk to Don (or whomever) about getting it into the OpenACS cvs.

In the meantime, let me know if you're actually using it and have problems, or would like a real patch, etc.
