I have been running mod_http2.so v1.10.0 since April 1 on my dev server and have never seen any warning about a session cleanup.

Apache/2.4.25 (Win64) PHP/7.1.4RC1 OpenSSL/1.0.2k-fips mod_fcgid/2.3.9
Operating in SSL FIPS mode
mpm_winnt: 150 worker threads

The dev server is very low traffic. I use it mainly for testing a Drupal 7 site, running PHP 7.1 x64 nts under mod_fcgid. Could that be the cause of the absence of http2:warn messages or do I have to do something special in my configs to log those warnings?

For about a year we use your Apache distribution with mod_http2 on customer production server, always with mod_http2 updated from here to the newest one.

Since the february, 26. build we got Apache crashes with Access violation

    (excerpt from Windows error log)
    Beschreibung:
    Name der fehlerhaften Anwendung: httpd.exe, Version: 2.4.25.0, Zeitstempel: 0x58550e9f
    Name des fehlerhaften Moduls: mod_http2.so, Version: 2.4.25.0, Zeitstempel: 0x58b2c47f
    Ausnahmecode: 0xc0000005


This occurred after about 7 days of uninterrupted, light usage. We could not further trace down a reason on this server (configuration and application in this time period unchanged).

Along with the logging error (see separate thread) we had 2 problems with this release (but none ever before). We had to revert to the version from Feb 1. , til now without problems.

I did not find any bug reports from crashes in mod_http2 since release 1.9.2.

Any other experiences or suggestions?

Hi there,

let me try to shed some light on recent changes and what we are trying right now to fix the warnings you see under Windows.

All versions before v1.9.3, so 1.9.2 and older, had various code paths for shutting down a connection. This has been a weakness of mod_http2 for a long time. The problem was it was tricky to keep track of what happens in what order when connections are normally closed, time out, have read/write errors etc.

With v1.9.3 I rewrote all that and made it one way. This allowed us to fix almost all(*) crashes in the most segmentation fault rich environment of profihost.de (kudos to Stefan Priebe for testing all this).

Connection shutdown of h2 connections now should only happen via "lingering close" of the connection. There is a failsafe catch when the memory pools are destroyed. This issues the warning you see under Windows, as this should not happen. Turns out that mpm_winnt is the only mpm module out there, that does *not* always call ap_lingering_close(). This we will fix and then Windows installations are rid of the warnings (and crashes related to them).

If you want to know more details: when mod_http2 learns that a connection was closed, it needs to wait for all request processing to cease on this connection before it can free memory and do other cleanups. This request processing in other threads will still read memory from the main connection, for example, it might still access SSL variables from mod_ssl.

Right at the start of "lingering close" is a good time to do that. However when the connection tears down its memory pools, it is too late, because it is not defined in which order pools are destroyed. So, it can happen that mod_ssl has already freed all memory while h2 threads are still running. This will lead to read after free on some installations and crash occasionally. On other installations, mod_ssl pools are, for some reason, freed after h2 has shut down and all is fine.

This is the change you see in v1.9.3 and onwards on Windows.

When the mpm_winnt calls ap_lingering_close() as it should, we expect all this to go away. In fact, v1.10.0 been running for days now on profihost.de without any crashes. v1.10.1 addresses two rare deadlocks and got some proxy_http2 love. This is the mod_http2 release candidate for the next 2.4.x release of Apache. If you want to help testing, please do so in the next two weeks!

-Stefan

Do not forget to copy/replace libhttpd.dll

libhttpd.dll is updated with the lingering close fix as described by Stefan above,

I had been looking for that fix in the 2.4x branch:
https://svn.apache.org/viewvc/httpd/httpd/branches/2.4.x/
but did not find it.

Am I looking with my nose?

If this works for everyone fine, I will tomorrow add this to trunk and propose for backport to 2.4.x. Thanks for testing!
