Hello Mailinglist, we've been using ZOPE in combination with the Silva CMS for around four years now to serve our University's homepage. And everything worked fine so far.
A week ago we switched to a new layout (for corporate reasons) and now we're experiencing frequent crashes of the Zope servers. Fortunately enough the reconnect themselves to the ZODB but since this is now happening around every five minutes, I'm rather worried that this might permanently damage the ZODB. I have absolutely no idea how this can happen, as we're using the same python, libxml2, libxslt and other module versions as with the old homepage - in fact the new site even runs on the same hardware. We never experienced any problems like these up until now. As far as I understood so far, it "requires" some C modules to successfully cause ZOPE to segfault? Versions we're using: Python 2.4.6 Zope 2.11.2 LibXML2 2.7.3 LibXSLT 1.1.24 Python-LDAP 2.3.6 Setuptools 0.6c9 and a Kerberos Module plus the Silva CMS (2.1) on top. We have four ZOPE servers, each running two ZEO processes and a separate ZODB. The machines all run RedHat Enterprise Linux 5.4. In front of that Apache, Squid and Pound take care of the caching. What we did was to examine the coredump-files with gdb but unfortunately this didn't prove to be very helpful because either things go wrong during garbage collection or some ceval stuff. So basically something trashes certain python-objects at time before. Do you have *any* hinst in how to track down this problem? Or are there any known problems with the versions above? The changelogs didn't reveal any plausible cause for me...
