Worker processes in hung state after reload

July 01, 2011 08:01PM
We use Nginx as a reverse proxy. After 2 or 3 reloads (kill -HUP), the parent's one child worker process remains "stuck"; the parent spawns a new one which is also often "stuck."

The number of worker_processes we have configured is 1. After a reload, there are 2 workers in the process list. After another reload, 3 workers, and so on. Usually all of these workers are in state R. When we strace them, we see no system calls, but they are sucking on user CPU. They are unable to serve requests. One time (seen in detail below), a new worker was spawned and it was *not* in state R, but state S, and was able to serve requests, until we issued another reload.

Of course what should happen is, after a reload, we should only ever have one worker process which is able to serve requests.

Details below, including our config. We can provide lsof, strace, debug log of the reproduction case if needed.
