Subject: [PATCH 0/3] improve error handling for rare cases
Date: Thu,  9 Jan 2020 11:14:49 +0000
Message-ID: <> (raw)

I tend to configure high RLIMIT_NOFILE limits, and the default
/proc/sys/fs/epoll/max_user_watches is difficult to hit, so
I've never hit the errors these patches supposedly fix...

But, I've noticed there's a places were we could die() without
an eval{} to trap it.  These patches fix some of those.

On a side note, we still lack sufficient testing for rare error
conditions.  These errors are not easy to reproduce, especially
EPOLL_CTL_ADD failures.

Also, the IO::KQueue->EV_SET calls actually make calls to
kqueue(2) directly (working more like epoll_ctl), so those could
die() inside the emulated epoll_ctl... Another day

Eric Wong (3):
  listener: EPOLL_CTL_ADD errors are non fatal
  http: log response_write errors
  qspawn: catch transient errors on pipe, EPOLL_CTL_ADD
