    Occasional crashing when trying to decode

    I'm occasionally getting a crash when zoning into the world.

    Any ideas on this one?

    Code:

    Re: Occasional crashing when trying to decode

    I'm curious if these issues are caused by people running showeq on raspberry pi models 1, 2 or 3. If your everquest machine has a gigabit ethernet interface (very common now), those older raspberry pis aren't going to be able to keep up. The 1 and 2 don't have gigabit ethernet, the 3 does but it's routed through the USB bus and that's too slow for true gigabit ethernet.

    I don't run showeq on a raspberry pi, but I'd think you'd need at least a raspberry pi 4 or above to handle the traffic.

    Re: Occasional crashing when trying to decode

    I've upgraded the machine I am using since my last post, and simplified my network setup... it doesn't happen often, just occasionally.

    I'm not running on a rpi. It was previously a VM and now it's a LXC container. Host is a 12th gen nuc with 32gb of ram with a gigabit nic.

    Re: Occasional crashing when trying to decode

    So... I think there's definitely something else going on with this.

    I've started getting this pretty frequently myself, and I've never had issues with this on my system prior. (I've already tuned all my kernel params)

    Running tcpdump at the same time on the SEQ host show 0 packets dropped, and if I play the same capture back in SEQ and everything works normally with no crash.

    So either SEQ's capture is dropping packets independently of the kernel, or there's an issue with the packets getting from the capture thread to the packet processing routine.

    The comments in the source talk about a race condition between the capture thread and the main thread and that there's a problem if there's a delay in the capture. So that may be what's happening here.

    I don't have an answer yet, but I wanted to let you know that it's definitely on my radar now.

    Re: Occasional crashing when trying to decode

    Turning on Real Time Thread under Network definitely seems to help with this - mine had inadvertently gotten turned off, and since turning it back on, I've haven't had any issues.


    That said, I'm still going to see if there's anything I can do to help with it in the general case. Though it's likely to be part of a longer/larger refactor.

    Re: Occasional crashing when trying to decode

    OK, so realtime definitely helps, though it's not 100% a fix.

    Obviously the kernel parameter tweaks have already been covered.

    There are only so many levers to pull on outside of that, but there are a couple of pcap options we can tweak that could help.

    Snapshot length was set to BUFSIZ which on my system is 8192. And pcap buffer size was not specified, but as far as I can tell the default is 2MB in recent versions of libpcap.

    I've reduced the default snaplen to 1k, since the EQ protocol currently limits individual UDP packets to 512 bytes of EQ-related payload + ethernet/ip/udp headers. (~554 bytes). The snaplen is now configurable in case we need to increase it in the future, but that shouldn't be necessary unless Darkpaw changes the underlying protocol. The pcap buffer size still defaults to 2MB, but is now configurable in 1MB increments up to 128MB.

    Of course, if, for whatever reason, the system can't process packets fast enough, the buffer will still fill up, packets will still get dropped, and SEQ will still complain and exit.

    To that end, I've also added checks so that if PCAP detects that packets have been dropped (which appears to be platform implementation dependent and not 100% accurate), SEQ will report if PCAP thinks they were dropped at the interface, in which case the kernel params should be adjusted; or due to PCAP's buffer being full, in which case, the snaplen/buffersize should be adjusted.

    The changes are currently on my dev branch should someone want to test, but I'm hoping to include these in an upcoming bugfix release soonish.
