Stuck commands

Has anyone else observed any "stuck" commands on their router since upgrading to 386.x? Below is a frequent occurrence of the wl command getting stuck being spawned by conn_diag (this process was created at 4:10 AM). But I've also seen it happen with some nvram get commands (I once had Skynet stuck for hours reading nvram after a firewall-start). I haven't factory reset in a while, and I'm not likely to. It's not much of an issue, only an annoyance. I can kill the stuck process and it will eventually return later.

Never seen that on any of the routers I work on. Try manually running the command to see what happens.

conn_diag is closed source, so it's impossible to look at it.

I can run the wl command manually just fine over and over, even when the older process is still stuck, and it returns the negative noise value. It's very odd. Most times when I try to determine the time of the hung process, it's in the middle of the night. Will keep an eye on it.

I had the same wl command running on my unit as well, forgot to check its start time before killing it.

@dave14305 From the straces I can't see that the nvram and wl commands are doing anything particularly wrong. So I'm assuming some "other" process has grabbed the netlink nl_pid. On my router the list of netlink sockets that are held open is fairly static.

Can you try this. Issue this command just before running the script and copy the output somewhere (e.g. notepad).
Code:
cat /proc/net/netlink | sort -nk 3

Then run an strace script that causes the problem to occur:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
while true
do
   strace nvram get wan0_enable
done

Assuming this script crashes, check the nl_pid associated with the EADDRINUSE error. Is this pid in the list that you created earlier (column 3)?

Yes, it is. 20735 in this latest test. So there is inadequate testing for nl_pid uniqueness by nvram.

The existing inode is from eapd, based on lsof output.

Yes, it is. 20735 in this latest test.
Good. That's progress.

So there is inadequate testing for nl_pid uniqueness by nvram.
From my reading of the man page I would say it ought to be safe using your own pid on the first netlink statement. But that's more by convention rather than being mandatory. All the other processes I looked at followed this convention. So on balance I would say the "blame" lies mostly with another process not following the convention.

The existing inode is from eapd, based on lsof output.
Can you kill that process and run the test again?
 

ColinTaylor

Part of the Furniture
Not at the moment, but I also find a hung wl process with pid 20741 and there is already an existing netlink entry for nl_pid 20741 belonging to mcpd (with pid 21376). I wasn’t stracing wl at all, so I’m not 100% sure what nl_pid it was trying.

I don't see any anomalies on my RT-AX86u (as expected):

Code:
# echo $(pidof eapd); lsof | grep eapd | grep netlink

I don't see any anomalies on my RT-AX86u (as expected):

Code:
# echo $(pidof eapd); lsof | grep eapd | grep netlink

So do you think it’s just random luck that a pre-existing process selects a random nl_pid that happens to later match the pid of a new process? Do your straces show the pid being used first, followed by a random pid greater than /proc/sys/kernel/pid_max?

That's my current theory - perhaps random or a perhaps a programming error. But I'm having a hard time trying to think of ways to prove that as I don't own an RT-AC86U. Normally I'd just keep poking around at things hoping to spot something that doesn't look right.

AFAICT they're not random - but again, my router doesn't suffer from this problem. From all the netlink output I've seen (not just from nvram and wl) the first nl_pid is the same as the pid and the second nl_pid (if there is one) is pid+32770 (pid_max+2?). This behaviour for netlink protocol 31 is consistent on my router. I'm wondering whether it's the same for you.

Good eye.

But eapd using 24084 is suspiciously rude.

I don't think there's a direct relationship between the node and the nl_pid. They look like different things to me. (I have 68 different processes using node 2131)
Code:
# lsof | grep eapd | grep netlink
eapd       1231                 admin    3u  netlink                         0t0       2131 unknown protocol: 31
eapd       1231                 admin    4u  netlink                         0t0       2132 unknown protocol: 31
eapd       1231                 admin    6u  netlink                         0t0       3411 unknown protocol: 31

P.S. I've stopped using -p with lsof because it won't show any associated threads (not that I've seen any).

I’m just saying that I don’t understand why eapd with pid 24095 uses nl_pid 24084 and then 24084+32770. Unless the precompiled binaries are broken in that regard.

Has anyone phoned home to Asus with these findings? Sounds like something is broken upstream in their mess of closed source-ness. Maybe @RMerlin would be able to point them in the direction of what needs to be looked at?
