To answer my own question, pyro 4.14 seems to work.  at least everything now starts and all network ports are being listened to.
Thanks.

    I would guess there is a problem with pyro.  I wrote this patch to stop the processes from crashing:

    I believe I've read of others getting pyro 4.20 to work, but perhaps not or my patch is wrong.

    Any ideas on how to proceed?
    Thanks.

    Hi,
    I did try stripping my configuration to just the contacts.cfg and then shrunk that file in order to arrive at the conclusion that that was the cause.  I will try 1.4 and see if that makes a differences.

    Since my testing has been using a single host (as the 10 minute quick start configures) the software version skew problems can't happen.

    If 1.4 fails, I'll sanitize the contacts.cfg file and send the configs as a reply.
    Thanks for the advice.

    Hello,

    I would suggest trying 1.4. A lot of major performance and stability
    fixes were added.

    If you strip your configuration and just add your 168 contacts do you
    still get the problem. If so just open a case on the Shinken github and
    copy your configuration.
    Jean should be able to quickly fix it as this is a core issue.

    As to scalability, unless you hit an odd bug or a known bug, you should
    be ok.

    Also make sure to follow the guidelines. (All same python version, same
    pyro version on all hosts running Shinken).

    Good luck, Shinken is an interesting beast that has lots of potential.

    Cheers,

    X.


    Hi,


    For 1: can you post your configuration objects so we can get a try?

    2: there is no limit in objects numbers, and all objects are managed like the others, so I don't see a reason why you got a lock here. Can you send me your configuration or reproduce it in a test case so we can work on it? 


    Thanks,


    Jean
