[LDM #NQY-760567]: Connection Error Message in ldmd.log



Hiro,

> Full Name: Hiro Gosden
> Email Address: address@hidden
> Organization: CIRA
> Package Version: 6.6.5
> Operating System: RHEL 4
> Hardware: Workstation
> Description of problem: I'm getting a lot of status 6 & 7 error messages that 
> indicate "Broken Pipe" and "Couldn't flush connection," then "connection rest 
> by peer." Some times, it seems to tie-up the network port and grinds the 
> system to a halt.  The system crash doesn't happen often any more, but a 
> couple of weeks ago, it crashed almost every day.  Would you know what may be 
> causing this?  Thanks,

The messages are due to the downstream LDM processes switching between PRIMARY 
and ALTERNATE modes and may safely be ignored. Indeed, the ERROR level of the 
"Couldn't flush" message is demoted to NOTICE in the current LDM release.

This is the way the LDM is designed to work. Unfortunately, it results in many 
log messages.

While individual upstream LDM processes might terminate, the LDM system as a 
whole shouldn't crash, tie-up, or lock. Please send me any evidence of this 
happening.
