Programming :: Handle A Broken Pipe Exception (SIGPIPE) In FIFO Pipe?

Mar 2, 2011

I've written a simple server in linux used fork to create a FIFO pipe.The server create two FIFO pipe.One for server read data from client and write data to client.Then another pipe for client read data from server and write data to server.When the server read data from a client used server-pipe and then write data to client.But ,if the client no read open the pipe,the server side write will be crashed because of a broken-pipe SIGPIPE. How to check whether the read side is opened?Or,how to catch the SIGPIPE,and then my server will still execute on,not crashed!!

Programming :: Python Script Gives Error - Broken Pipe

Jul 21, 2011

I am building a python script which works same as SMTP protocol. I have build separate functions in that for each command of SMTP, and after this i have integrated all those functions in a new function named as send_mail(so that i don't have to execute every function separately for every command). Now, when i execute the script for the first time it runs successfully, but for the second time it gives the error of "BROKEN PIPE". I really can't make out how the socket is getting closed.

Networking :: PING - Pipe 2 Versus Pipe 3

Apr 10, 2009

I'm doing ping between 2 RH servers through a VPN site2site tunnel and in some times I got in the result pipe 2 and another pipe 3 as I mark it in blue color below.

e.g.

64 bytes from 192.168.1.10: icmp_seq=0 ttl=128 time=0.229 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.1.10: icmp_seq=1 ttl=128 time=0.287 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.1.10: icmp_seq=2 ttl=128 time=0.278 ms

[code]....

What's the difference between pipe 2 and pipe 3 and what's the meaning of it?

Sep 2, 2010

I am running somes instances of Redis. I want to get Redis stats with following command:

Code:

$ echo "info" | nc <server_IP> <port>

but sometime it returns nothing. The first thing come to my mind is broken pipe or something like this. I always get the result if telnet to Redis and typing 'info' command. I also try pipe viewer to monitor the progress of data but it didn't help:

Server :: Apache2 EnableSendfile And Error - Broken Pipe: Core_output_filter

Mar 2, 2010

I have installed a LAMP server (Debian Lenny + Apache2 + PHP Version 5.3.1-0.dotdeb.1). On this machine, my web application (PHP + MySQL) exists in 2 flavours:

- Dev
- Prod

In /etc/apache2/sites-available, I have ims & ims-dev, one for each instance. Their contents are identical in terms of settings, except for the paths (dev/prod):

Code:

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin admin@domain.com
ServerName ims.domain.com
ServerAlias ims.domain.com

[code]....

why this difference when the settings are strictly identical? Do I need to add EnableSendfile off in my conf files to stop that?

Programming :: Getting The Name Of The Process That Sent Data To A Pipe?

Feb 16, 2011

I am trying to automate some directory naming when we're manually running some scripts and are using tee to direct the output to a file (log). Right now this is what we do

Code:

./some_script.sh 2>&1 | tee /home/user/some_dir/logs/manual/some_script_20110216_1628.log

As a matter of laziness and keeping the log files consistently named, I'd like to create a function to pipe it to so that it's doing all the naming How I envision the command running

Code:

./some_script.sh 2>&1 | myfunc

And what the logfile name should look like (and in the right directory)

Code:

some_script_20110216-1628.log

I was thinking of adding a function to our profile to handle this. Just in testing I was trying to stream line right on the command line, but I'm having some difficulty in getting the name of the script that is pushing data over the pipe. Here is what I've tried

Code:

./some_script.sh 2>&1 | tee $(cd ../logs/manual; pwd)/$0_$(date +%Y%m%d)-$(date +%H%M).log

but that created a file named

"bash_20110216-1628.log"

Programming :: BASH: Get PID Of First Command In Pipe

Aug 11, 2010

I understand that $! is the PID of a command. For example:

Code: #!/bin/bash
myprogram &
echo "PID of myprogram is $!"

I'd like to send the output of "myprogram" to both console and to a log file using the "tee" command but I also want to store the PID of "myprogam". Something like this:

Code: #!/bin/bash
myprogram | tee ./logfile &
echo "PID of myprogram is $!"

The problem is that $! is now the PID of "tee" rather than the PID of "myprogram".

Ubuntu :: SSH "Write Failed: Broken Pipe" For Some Users

May 10, 2010

I am having a truly bizarre problem when trying to set up my sheeva plug as a backup server. I have four users (one for each member of my family) that I want to give permission to ssh in (well, sftp in but they're essentially the same) and backup to an external harddrive.

My user works perfectly well and has done since I got the plug. So does a transmission user I set up to run the transmission daemon. With the other three users, however, I get the following error after SSH asks for the user's password:

Code:

Write failed: Broken pipe

This happens whether I try locally or over my network. I haven't been able to find a solution to it at all. I've made sure that /bin/bash was set as the shell and that the home directory is writeable with the correct permissions (ls -al /home):

Code:

drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 4096 Dec 21 19:25 .
drwxr-xr-x 21 root root 4096 Dec 17 19:27 ..

[code]...

The alternative for me would be to use netatalk and AFP but the problem is that there is no native support for AFP and so things like d�ja dup backup may not be able to mount the afp drive...

Programming :: Pipe Output To 2 Files But Not STDOUT?

Mar 24, 2011

I want to have the output of a program go to 2 different files but not going to standard out. Is there a way to do this in bash? I know that in Z shell its really easy. omething like: Code: echo "test" >> file1 >> file2 Would work. But in Bash it doesn't seem that easy. I know that tee will send the output to 2 files but it also sends it to STDOUT.Something like:Code: echo "test" | tee -a file1 file2 Would put the word "test" in file1, file2, and STDOUT. Is there a way to just send the output to file1 and file2?

Programming :: Detect Pipe From Running C Program?

Jan 24, 2009

I'm looking for a way to detect whether or not a program has been called from pipe, e.g.

Code:

whatever | my_program
versus simply just being exectuated directly:

Code:

my_program

Why? In the first case, I want to run the program non-interactively, and in the latter case I want to print out user-friendly messages. I've been thinking along the lines of some check I haven't yet found, like:

Code:

if( stream_buffer_is_not_empty() )

Programming :: Clearing Stdin Obtained From Pipe

Mar 14, 2010

I have a small program that reads stdin from a pipe using fgets. Now fgets blocks for the first line but after that it will not block.

The code, my_echo.c -
int main(int argc, char **argv) { char buf [2000] ;
char* pc ; printf("hello ") ; while (1)
{ buf[0] = (char) 0 ;
pc = fgets(buf, sizeof(buf), stdin);
if (pc != NULL) printf("%s ",buf); } return 0; }

How its called
* In terminal window 1: ./my_echo < my_fifo
* In terminal window 2: echo "1234" > my_fifo
* In terminal window 1: prints hello then 1234.
* Checking with ksysguard or top shows that my_echo is consuming 40% of CPU time.

Adding a few printf's shows that the gets is not blocking and returns a null pointer.
* In terminal window 2: echo "qwerty" > my_fifo
* In terminal window 1 qwerty prints.
I want a read function that does in fact block so my program does not tie up CPU time, read does not block.

Ubuntu Networking :: Ssh "Connection Reset By Peer" - Write Failed: Broken Pipe

Feb 9, 2010

which cropped up today after no changes to the system: I can successfully ssh into my ubuntu 64-bit 9.10 machine (via OS X with iTerm), but after about 30 seconds, the connection drops with the message "Connection reset by peer Connection to xx.xx.xx.xx closed".

If I then try to immediately ssh back in I get: "Write failed: Broken pipe". If I try to immediately ping the machine instead, I cannot ping it until the ~10th try. Eventually I can log back in again, only to be kicked off after between 5 and 60 seconds. I called the network people and their are no known issue right now with networking. The networking on the ubuntu machine is otherwise fine, it seems. In the /var/log/auth.log file, it simple says:

Quote:
Feb 9 14:19:20 harriet sshd[4134]: Accepted password for xxx from xx.xx.xx.xx port 55105 ssh2
Feb 9 14:19:20 harriet sshd[4134]: pam_unix(sshd:session): session opened for user xxx by (uid=0)
Feb 9 14:19:28 harriet sshd[4046]: pam_unix(sshd:session): session closed for user xxx

The solution I come across to a similar problem is to add a "ClientAwakeInterval" number to sshdconfig, but this (as expected) doesn't fix my problem.

Programming :: Directing Script Output To Memory But Without Using A Pipe?

Jun 27, 2008

I'm trying to run a series of commands to read a live data dump an strip it in various ways on the fly and send those various stripped pieces of data to corresponding files. For instance I have the following:

Code:

./dumpscript.sh | sed '/print/,/raw/d' | cut -c 1-47 > output.txt

In this case my dumpscript.sh output is piped through "sed" and "cut" to give me the specific stream of data that I need for archiving. Now at the same time I would like to run a second "cut" with different parameters and output the results to another file. Again this needs to be live on the fly.

I've tried:

Code:

./dumpscript.sh | sed '/print/,/raw/d' | cut -c 1-47 > output.txt ; cut -c 1-18 > output2.txt

However, there's nothing in the second output file.

Programming :: Pipe Buffering/blocked Write Caching?

Apr 3, 2010

I understand that the linux pipe is a buffer and that any data written to it will stay there until it is read, and if the max capacity of the buffer is reached, any additional writes will block (by default).

HOWEVER, the behavior of the pipeline below suggest that the write operations are buffered/cached before ever being written to the pipe on the client side here is write.sh, which creates 1000 byte string and writes it 100 times to stdout... the idea being that it'll block as soon as the 64kb linux pipe size is reached:

[Code]...

This is not what I was expecting: I was expected that once the capacity was reached, any reads would be followed immediately by a write to take advantage of the freed space. Instead, the blocked write operation seems to wait for some random amount of time/space to free until it unblocks and writes.

Programming :: Select() Call Does Not Detect Data In Pipe Between Parent And Child Program

Sep 23, 2009

i wanted to capture the stdout and stdin of a child process within a parent so that any output of child is sent to the parent and any input taken from the parent. code is simple enough and i have followed all code guidlines on the internet (some guidlines do differ also) my select call either hangs if i do not give a tmeout and with a timeout it returns 0 descriptors to be written to or read from:

below is the simple code for parent:

int main(void)
{
int outfd[2];
int infd[2];

[code].....

why select hangs without a timeout ... why can it not detect that the pipe is write ready i.e parent can write to it ... if it does not detect tha read pipe as having data...
