Strang Socket Crash over Thread

Post by evstevemd » Thu Aug 01, 2019 6:56 pm

I get below error intermittently. Restarting app couple of times works. But am puzzled as what it mean and what actually goes wrong.
Does anyone have idea as to what is wrong here.

I'm running socket inside wxThread in blocking mode.
TIA

thread #11, stop reason = EXC_BAD_ACCESS (code=1, address=0x18)
the address 0x18 is definitely wrong, looks like access violation
in body of libsystem_pthread.dylib`pthread_mutex_lock.
looks like attempt to lock deleted mutex object.

At least two things are strange here:
1. I connects only and don't disconnected at the point if crash. But then trace shows it's closing and disconnecting. Seems magic to me
2. It some times crashes sometime but with two or three trials with the same server it works fine. Am thinking of even changing sockets to use something else, If I cannot figure this out.

Hi,
Maybe the server is dropping connection and you code does not handle it gracefully?
Is the server remote? Do you have control over it? Can you see the log there?

Thank you.

That is possible but how do I handle it graceful?

Hi,
What type of server is it?
Web one? UDP? TCP?

There should be some kind of a log folder which you can inspect...

Thank you.

It is TCP. Here is the ctor code

Code: Select all

ClientTCP::ClientTCP(int port, wxEvtHandler *handler)
    : ClientBase(handler)
{
    wxCriticalSectionLocker locker(m_sockCS);
    m_socket = new wxSocketClient(wxSOCKET_BLOCK | wxSOCKET_WAITALL);

    m_addr.AnyAddress();
    m_addr.Service(port);

    Connect();
}
and the connect method

Code: Select all

bool ClientTCP::Connect()
{
    wxCriticalSectionLocker locker(m_sockCS);
    m_socket->Connect(m_addr, false);
    return m_socket->WaitOnConnect(0, 400); // 0sec 400ms
}
and method for checking if server is connected

Code: Select all

bool ClientTCP::IsConnected()
{
    wxCriticalSectionLocker locker(m_sockCS);
    return m_socket->IsConnected();
}
and write

Code: Select all


bool ClientTCP::Send(::jsonrpc::Request::Ptr_t request)
{
    wxCriticalSectionLocker locker(m_sockCS);

    if(!IsConnected()) {
        wxPuts("Sockets not connected. Not sending!");
        return false;
    }

    // write to socket
    if(m_socket->IsOk()) {
        wxString data = //gets data here
        if(!m_socket->Write(data.mb_str(), wxStrlen(data)).Error()) {
            ReadSocket(); 
        }
        else
        {
            switch(m_socket->LastError())
            {
                case wxSOCKET_INVOP:
                {
                    wxPuts("SOCKET INVALID OPERATION");
                    break;
                }
                case wxSOCKET_IOERR:

                    break;
                }
                case wxSOCKET_INVSOCK:
                {
                    wxPuts("SOCKET NOT INITIALIZED");
                    break;
                }
                case wxSOCKET_WOULDBLOCK:
                {
                    wxPuts("SOCKET BLOCKING CONFUSION");
                    break;
                }
                case wxSOCKET_TIMEDOUT:
                {
                    wxPuts("SOCKET TIMEOUT");
                    break;
                }
                case wxSOCKET_MEMERR:
                {
                    wxPuts("SOCKET MEMORY ERROR");
                    break;
                }
                default:
                {
                }
            }
            return false;
        }
    }
    else
    {
        return false;
    }

    return true;
}
and read method

Code: Select all

void ClientTCP::ReadSocket(bool block)
{
    wxCriticalSectionLocker locker(m_sockCS);

    char c = 0x00;
    wxString data;
    int dataLength = 0;
    while(m_socket->IsConnected()) {
        // read a char
        if(!block) {
            if(!m_socket->WaitForRead(0, 1)) break; 
        }
        m_socket->Read(&c, 1);

        if(m_socket->LastReadCount() == 0 || m_socket->Error()) {
            break;
        }
        data.Append((wxChar)c, 1);
        //do something with data
    }

    if(block) ReadSocket(false); // continue reading but in timeout mode
}
