Nginx segfault - `is_closing_session(): no DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS in environment`

August 13, 2022 04:01AM
Hello.
I have a single-digit fleet of Ubuntu servers, all running a similar configuration:

* Ubuntu 20.04LTS, current kernel via `apt`
* Nginx 1.23.1 from source, with 3rd party modules
* PHP 8.0 or 8.1 from source

One of the servers has recently had issues with what appears to be an Nginx segfault, which manifests as high CPU load, repeated `apport` processes spawning, and errors written to `apport.log`. The other servers have a similar config, but are not affected by this issue.

The process that spawns is:

/usr/bin/python3 /usr/share/apport/apport -p58000 -s11 -c0 -d1 -P58000 -u33 -g33 -- !usr!sbin!nginx

…where the `p` and `P` value corresponds to the PID. An excerpt from `apport,log` follows:

ERROR: apport (pid 58552) Sat Aug 13 07:23:24 2022: called for pid 58551, signal 11, core limit 0, dump mode 1

The processes are spawning in quick succession and are enough to take it offline as far as Nginx is concerned, though `sshd` is responsive enough for me to log in.

My gut feeling indicates a server-specific issue, perhaps hardware-related, but since this is new territory for me and my research hasn't located much apart from "this might be hardware", I wanted to check in here before I migrate the sites to a new server.

I am grateful for any guidance or advice for what might be worth looking at on the server as-is.

Thank you, and best wishes to you.
