Recently we updated our main NFS server to FreeBSD 6.3. This machine
serves about 10 netboot clients all running FreeBSD 6.2. Since the
upgrade we are having some issues with locking. We tried to avoid
running the lockd daemons at all but most software on the netboot
clients (Apache, Postfix) refuses to run without it.
On the 6.3 server rpc.lockd leaks memory, somewhat less than 1 meg per
hour. This means that every few days we need to restart the daemon. This
is quite annoying because we need to stop/start rpc.lockd on both the
server and the clients in a controlled fashion. In most cases also the
daemons using locking need to be restarted.
Is this a known issue? I could not find a PR for it. Maybe a workaround?
I havent seen a report of this behaviour.
I found some recent posts on the -current list about a complete rewrite
of the locking mechanism, will this be ported to 6-STABLE in the future?
Almost certainly not.
