This is no longer an issue in both 6.x and 7.0, but some other harder
problem comes up :-(
I have not been able to determine what is the root yet, and keep digging
Brief description to new problem:
When a large number of threads (around 1K) created to communicate to
a remote server
via TCP sockets, if data tranmitted per thread (probably caused by
aggregated data) exceed
a certain amount, the Tx session will hang. If Tx runs on a terminal
session, the terminal hangs.
Cannot kill the Tx process. Open another V console term is ok.
If Tx runs on a Xterm, the entire X window hangs, although the
Xclock is still ticking, but
even a top program stops running on another xterm. Samba serve is
dead. CTL-ALT-BS can kill
X window, but no way to kill the hanging process, thus if testing
this multiple times, system dies.
Anyway, this is a different problem.
Case 37436 can be closed, and thanks for all efforts.
