I had a bit of a shock this afternoon. Had an email from my ISP advising that they had suspended my cgi directory as I had been using too much in the way of CPU resources. Apparently the problem was vanilla.r which had spawned 50 processes using up 85% of the CPU time. I'm using Solaris version 2.5 of core. Anyone any ideas as to why this is happening? I note that Solaris is not one of the platforms for which a new core has been released :( Is this something to do with not having a 'quit in the vanilla script? -- Graham Chiu http://www.compkarori.com/vanilla <<-- currently down

Version 2.5? What's the next digit in the tuple? That's the one we need. There was a problem in earlier versions that left a zombie process (async DNS) hanging. Sounds like the problem you have. Testing vanilla with 2.5.0 here shows the problem, I've got 143 zombies. But seems to work fine under 2.5.5. Upgrade to Solaris Sparc Core 2.5.5 from the website. Site shows it's there. -Carl

It is version 188.8.131.52.1, so I am running the latest. Is there an experimental version for Solaris in the works. I also understood that these zombies left by async DNS didn't consume any CPU time, but the ones seen by my ISP were doing so. -- Graham Chiu Compkarori http://www.compkarori.co.nz/index.php Karori Shopping Mall, Karori, Wellington, NZ ph: +64 4 939-0212 fax: +64 4 949-9088
