#12521 closed Bug Report - Crash (Unverified)

Frontend does not close pipes leading to crash

Reported by: bib_aab@… Owned by:

Component: MythTV - General Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords: file handles
Cc: Ticket locked: no


If you go into a cycle of watching tv, then going back to the menu, the frontend eventually crashes due to all available file handles being used.

Each time this happens about 3 or 4 pipes do not get shut leading to the crash.

I also assume that since this is C++, that there is also a memory leak here somewhere.

This has been happening for months, if not years.

I can't reproduce this. There is an increase in used FD's while playing most get close on exit from the player and the remaining ones timeout after a few minutes so the total FD's used AFAICT stays the same.

I'm getting about 255 FD's using lsof -p PID | wc -l to count them.

This was master on a remote frontend.

Anyone else able to reproduce?
