[LDM #UHO-873587]: Possible bug with 6.13.7 (and previous)



Mike,

> pqact[66069] ERROR filel.c:3032:reap() Child 39808 exited with status 255

That message means that pqact(1) noticed that a child process that it create 
exited with a non-zero status. I believe 255 means that the child program 
couldn't be found. There should be other messages nearby that indicate what the 
child program was.

> Similarly, what does "ldmd.c:cleanup() NOTE  Exiting" mean?  I'm seeing

That message means that the upstream LDM process was terminating. An upstream 
LDM process will terminate if its connection to its associated downstream LDM 
process is broken -- such as when the downstream LDM process decides to switch 
transfer modes (the downstream LDM must, necessarily, disconnect and reconnect 
to do this).

Wait for 6.13.9, which has the ldmping(1) bug fixed.

Regards,
Steve Emmerson
