#200 nat_traversal TM callback registration

modules (179)

We noticed that with 1.7.0 and still with 1.7.1 that we saw increased CPU utilization over time.

We also encountered a seg fault which led us to look closely at the TM REQIN callback list:

Core was generated by `/usr/local/sbin/opensips -P /var/run/opensips.pid'.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.

#8 0x0000000000414906 in run_action_list (a=<value optimized out>, msg=0x8c3248)

We didn't conclusively find the seg fault, but we did find the source of the CPU increase.

It appears that the nat_traversal module registers for TM reqin callbacks once per message rather than once during mod_init().

This results in the callback list becoming huge (1.7M elements!) over time.

We moved the registration into mod_init(), and it seems to perform as it should.

I'm including the modified module/nat_traversal.c file from 1.7.1.

Let me know if you have further questions, or if our fix doesn't seem correct.

Thanks much,

    Hi Alan,

    Thanks for the report! You are right. There are indeed some issues with nat_traversal which I'm working on, and that is one of them.

    A bigger fix is needed in order to better work with the dialog module, I expect to have it ready by early january.

    Kind regards,

    This is now fixed together with some other issues as of r8669 in trunk and r8674 in the 1.7 branch.
