INSIST(qs->s_wbuf == NULL) failed

INSIST(qs->s_wbuf == NULL) failed

Post by éric Allar » Fri, 03 May 2002 23:59:17



Need help!

I have a slave dns (named 8.3.1 compiled with gcc ver 3.0.3) on Solaris 8
with the following error in my namedlog:

[ID 295310 local0.crit] ns_main.c:2011:INSIST(qs->s_wbuf == NULL) failed.

When the named gets this error, it stops! I have to restart it!

What is the problem and what is the solution?

Any hints will be apreciated!

Thanks!

> What is the problem and what is the solution?

The INSIST is a mechanism ISC use to ensure the program doesn't
reach inappropriate conditions. Your BIND program just hit the
software equivalent of a safety guard.

The temporary fix is to put named restart in a loop, so it
restarts automatically on crashing :(

I dare say ISC will want more details of under what condition
this occurs. Does it claim to be doing anything special or
unusual at the point it fails?

I don't have the 8.3.1 source to hand, I run BIND 9, which also
presents another approach to not having this particular problem!
BIND 9 comes with a nanny script to restart it automatically if
it fails, but it has never crashed on me (or any of it's
development versions either).

 
 
 

1. INSIST(zp->z_time == 0 || zp->z_time > tt.tv_sec) failed.

8.2.4-REL on freebsd 4.4-stable

named[83933]: /usr/src/usr.sbin/named/../../contrib/bind/bin/named/ns_maint.c:274: INSIST(zp->z_time == 0 || zp->z_time > tt.tv_sec) failed.

and then bind quietly died

list archive gives no hits for "INSIST(zp->z_time"

clues?
