Crash on locked database

Reported by: Sewi Owned by: Sewi

Component: editor Version: trunk

Run the following command:

./ --die -- --actionqueue=file.quit & ./ --die -- --actionqueue=file.quit &

One of the tasks exits with

DIE: DBD::SQLite::db do failed: database is locked at (eval 144) line 36.

(Happens on very most of the tries.)

Padre should wait a random amount of time if the database is locked and try again.

The problem also happens when exiting more than one Padre task at the same time (system shutdown, for example).

Can you confirm this is still the case?

If so, maybe send it Adam's way... ?

The problem seems not to exist any longer (ticket is 12month old). Sewi, please reopen the ticket if you have the issue.

  • Resolution fixed deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened
  • Version changed from 0.58 to trunk

The problem still exists. The ticket wasn't updated because nothing new happend.

Your computer might be too fast for the simple sample, but you could open or close two big sessions at the same time (in different instances) - and Padre will crash.

We could reduce database locking times, but we'll only reduce the number of times this happens - much better would be a clean error handling and retry if the first access failed.

This sounds like something you could reproduce even without the gui. Then it might be relatively easy to write tests for it. Then a fix would be more permanent.

All Padre DB access is done directly through ORLite. There is no "one place" where we could add a retry.

Things seem to be better because I need to run Padre three times (adding another instance to the sample) to get this error on every try.

Alias: What about adding a "retry" option to ORLite?
