Hi,

I noticed (now for a while) that the nighly dashboard run leaves (sometimes) a root instance running which eats 100% cpu for hours (=until I kill it by hand).
Has this been observed by others, too?

Hi,

Actually I see the same. Each night one root application poltergeist.

Ralf.

Hi Bjoern

I know this problem, which is somehow OS related. I see this problem only on one platform. To get rid of the zombies i put a

killall root.exe

in the last line of Dart.sh. This is no solution but at least a workaround.

Do you have some test which run into a timeout?

Ciao

Florian

Hi,

I'd be careful with that! You don't want to kill running jobs Wink
Since you think it being platform related: my machine is leonardo (openSUSE_11.2-GNU_Linux-i686-gcc4.4-fairsoft_Jan10).

Kind regards, Ralf.

Hi Ralf

Since i start no root sessions on my test machines during this time of the night, there is no problem with killing all root jobs. If there is still a root job running this is also a zombie which could be killed.

Somehow on some machines/systems the root job is not terminated correctly. I had the problem only if one of the jobs runs into a timeout.

Ciao

Florian

killall is a bad idea...

yes, there was a timeout job, i guess its related to that.
I have the problem on different machines OS systems, but not everytime on all machines, but that changes.
