I have a very strange issue going on that just started happening last
week. I am running an apache/mongrel stack on a windows 2003 box
connecting to a sql server 2005.
Since last Thursday I have had 5 crashes where the mongrel service
becomes unresponsive. If I restart the service all is fine. Nothing
is being reported in the rails logs… But I did notice something in the
Each time it look like I get the following log entry:
** INT signal received.
Wed Aug 13 15:01:20 -0500 2008: Reaping 103 threads for slow workers
because of ‘shutdown’
Thread #<Thread:0x8553270 sleep> is too old, killing.
Wed Aug 13 15:01:20 -0500 2008: Error calling Dispatcher.dispatch
#<Mongrel::TimeoutError: Mongrel timed out this thread: shutdown>
I have seen this pattern repeated for each of the crashes. I have 5
instances running and about 50 concurrent users who are banging away at
this web application.
Any advice or thoughts would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
