I am running six crservers and a crappfaker on a single multi-core machine
under WinXP. From time to time, the rendering windows hang. The longest run
I've had is about 45 minutes. The typical time up is about 10 minutes with
variation among the four different applications that I run.
I read through the Chromimum dev archives and located a series of 2006 posts
by Michael Durig where he includes a patch for non-blocking sockets instead
of blocking. Here's the archive.
This patch (with some slight modifications and #ifdef bracketing) seems to
do the trick at least for XP. I have now been running an app through
Chromium for 18+ hours with no hangs yet.
Couple quick questions:
(1) Does anyone have thoughts or words of warning as to whether a
non-blocking approach will cause other problems?
(2) Anyone else seeing the hang behavior on WinXP?
