I've got this condition happening on my Apache 2.4.2 X64 installation:

So, there is a working patch but it has not yet been merged into module trunk. Does anyone have a patched mod_proxy_balancer DLL for this bug?

If not, I'll have to build it myself, which is fine. As I've never done that before on Windows, I could use some pointers to helpful threads within the forum. I'll be using Visual Studio 2010 - Visual C++.

Thanks for building that module, glsmith. I really appreciate it a great deal.

While the patch seems to have worked for some, for whatever reason, it did not resolve the issue on my installation:

[proxy_balancer:emerg] [pid 6496:tid 620] (22)Invalid argument: AH01186: worker slotmem_grab failed

Commenting out all instances of BalancerMember stops the Apache crash (proving this is the culprit) but also disables the balancer module's intended purpose.

I may have to look for an alternative method of round-robin'ing my requests. I'm certain there are other mods that will handle that sort of routing.

Can you please post your config? I want to reproduce that issue and might find some more info on my own system than.

This is in my SSL configuration file and is embedded in the default SSL VirtualHost. It is the last configuration that appears in the VirtualHost. There are many additional configuration items before the Proxy settings that I've not included below.



<VirtualHost _default_:9000>

  ProxyTimeout 900
  SSLProxyEngine On
  ProxyPreserveHost On

  <Proxy balancer://my_cluster>
    BalancerMember https://paz:9000 route=nA
    BalancerMember https://baz:9000 route=nB
    ProxySet lbmethod=byrequests stickysession=FOO_STICKY nofailover=Off

  ProxyPass /foo/   balancer://my_cluster/foo/
  Header add Set-Cookie "FOO_STICKY=s.%{BALANCER_WORKER_ROUTE}e;path=/;secure" env=BALANCER_ROUTE_CHANGED
