[Openvpn-devel] [BUG] sometimes --ping 30 stops: select() timeout=31536000 seconds (exactly one year)!


  • Subject: [Openvpn-devel] [BUG] sometimes --ping 30 stops: select() timeout=31536000 seconds (exactly one year)!
  • From: Denis Vlasenko <vda@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
  • Date: Fri, 28 May 2004 23:27:43 +0300

I was puzzled why sometimes openvpn ceases to generate
'--ping 30' packets. I instrumented it a bit,
here is a pseudo-patch:

errlevel.h:
+#define D_PING               LOGLEV(4, 0, 0)         /* show --ping packets */
....
-#define D_INTERVAL           LOGLEV(8, 70, M_DEBUG)  /* show interval.h debugging info */
+#define D_INTERVAL           LOGLEV(4, 70, M_DEBUG)  /* show interval.h debugging info */

ping-inline.h: (check_ping_send now will explain why it do not send pings)
static inline void
check_ping_send (struct context *c)
{
  void check_ping_send_dowork (struct context *c);
  if (!c->options.ping_send_timeout) { msg (D_PING, "PING: !c->options.ping_send_timeout"); return; }
  if (c->c2.to_link.len) { msg (D_PING, "PING: c->c2.to_link.len <> 0"); return; }
  if (!event_timeout_trigger (&c->c2.ping_send_interval, &c->c2.timeval))
    { msg (D_PING, "PING: !event_timeout_trigger(%ld,%ld)",(long)(c->c2.ping_send_interval.last), (long)c->c2.timeval.tv_sec); return; }
    check_ping_send_dowork (c);
}

ping.c:check_ping_send_dowork (struct context *c): (log pings)
...
   encrypt_sign (c, true);
+  msg (D_PING, "PING: SENT");
}

forward.c:void single_select (struct context *c): (log large select timeouts)
...
  /*
   * Wait for something to happen.
   */
  c->c2.select_status = 1;      /* this will be our return "status" if select doesn't get called */
  if (!c->sig->signal_received && !SOCKET_READ_RESIDUAL (c->c2.link_socket))
    {
      if (check_debug_level (D_SELECT))
        show_select_status (c);

+     if(((unsigned long)c->c2.timeval.tv_sec) >= 28) { //vda
+       msg(D_PING, "PING: select timeout=%ld", (long)c->c2.timeval.tv_sec);
+     }
      c->c2.select_status = SELECT (&c->c2.event_wait, &c->c2.timeval);
      check_status (c->c2.select_status, "select", NULL, NULL);
    }


With --ping 30, select shall _never_ have timeout>30 secs, right?

I was lucky. Bug struck me soon after I restarted openvpn.

Fri May 28 23:00:14 2004 PING: select timeout=31535985
Fri May 28 23:00:14 2004 PING: select timeout=31535985
Fri May 28 23:00:14 2004 PING: select timeout=31535985

and so on. openvpn will abstain from sending pings now
for eaxctly 365 days (I think :). Further log contains
records of two kinds only:

Fri May 28 23:24:36 2004 RANDOM USEC=565465 (random)
	and
Fri May 28 23:24:36 2004 PING: select timeout=31534523 (counting down)

Here is how I start openvpn:

openvpn \
    --secret key \
    --dev tun \
    --proto udp \
    --port 8002 \
    --local 1.1.4.1 \
    --remote 1.1.4.2 \
    --ifconfig 1.1.5.1 1.1.5.2 \
    --tun-mtu 1434 \
    --ping 30 \
    --verb 4 \

NB: I run ntp (strata=3) on this box.
