Description Jelle Smet 2005-07-06 08:01:35 UTC
In cacti there is a zoom tool where you can zoom into rrdtool generated graphs.
For some reason if you keep zooming, to a resolution of 5 minutes,  no graphs
are generated anymore and the rrdtool process hangs in the background while
consuming 100% cpu.
rrdtool needs to: kill -9
There is also a post on the cacti forums:

http://forums.cacti.net/viewtopic.php?p=36336#36336

This makes an ideal DOS attack,....



Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select a graph
2. click on the zoom tool
3. select a region that is +- 5 minutes

Actual Results:  
on the webbased userinterface no graph is produced.
Meanwhile rrdtool is still active as a process consuming 100% cpu forever.


Expected Results:  
It should keep zooming and generating graphs without consequences.

Strange but, apparently all users that are reporting this issue on the cacti.net
board are Gentoo Linux users,......
The error can be reproduced on a default installation.
The only thing that is changed in this default installation are the RRA values:
The ones used by me to generate this problem:

Name   	                      Steps     Rows    Timespan
Daily (5 Minute Average) 	1 	600 	86400 	
Weekly (5 Minute Average) 	1 	2200 	604800 	
Yearly (5 Minute Average) 	1 	105120 	33053184 	
Monthly (5 Minute Average) 	1 	9000 	2678400

Hi

I'm having this problem too (with Cacti 0.8.6f and RRDtool 1.2.10) on Gentoo x86.

Here's my post on the Cacti forum : http://forums.cacti.net/viewtopic.php?t=8357
and on the RRDtool ML : http://lists.ee.ethz.ch/rrd-users/msg10007.html

I get an infinite loop:

fstat64(3, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=1067, ...}) = 0

Comment 5 Daniel Black (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-07-15 16:47:29 UTC
looks as though its been worked upstream. please advice when a new 
release/workaround is released by the author.

Could you point me to your source where you get this information from please?
Comment 7 Jelle Smet 2005-07-23 08:52:33 UTC
upgrading to sys-libs/glibc-2.3.5 solves the problem
