Bug #9388: Ruby 1.9.3-pxxx segmentation fault

* Author: Phillip Oertel
* Status: Closed
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee:
* Category:
* Target version:
* ruby -v: 1.9.3-p484
* Backport: 1.9.3: UNKNOWN, 2.0.0: UNKNOWN, 2.1: UNKNOWN

we experience regular segmentation faults on our production server (a
Rails web application running at I have
attached the log showing the segmentation fault and all the information
being logged with it. We have considered reporting this bug to the
Sidekiq or Redis gem maintainers, but after looking through the bug
reports there, I found they direct segmentation faults here.

The bug occurs in a background queue using the Sidekiq gem. The queue
handles a low number of jobs per day (less than 1000, running between 1
and 10 seconds each).
On average the segfault occurs every 6-12 hours, so many jobs run
without failure.

The affected versions are (at least) 1.9.3p194, 1.9.3p448, 1.9.3p484. We
have tried those, hoping the bug would be fixed.

Unfortunately I have no experience debugging Ruby internals, so I don't
know what other information to provide -- please let me know if you need
more information.

Thank you very much
