[Olsr-dev] forwarding is not set after on olsrd restart
Sat Aug 2 11:51:57 CEST 2008
What i found is (it`s really not a bug (-; just a not so nice usage
At the start of olsr /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward normally gets set to 1
(if it`s not already set to 1)
and if it wasn`t its set back to 0 when the daemon stopps,..
but i ran into problems with an init.d script which performs an olsr restart
olsrd -f /etc/olsrd.conf -d 0
maybe it`s not the best idea to do it this way, but i asume many peole do it
so, or similar (eg. using pid-file ),..
of course killall -w would also solve following problem
after an restart forwarding isn`t set to 1 anymore (on a multicore (virtual)
server the chance to get this was > 90%, on an other server (single core) it
occured only ocassionally)
i solved this issue by enabling forwarding on this systems by default,..
but maybe an starting olsr schould set forwarding a bit delayed/later, so
that an stopping olsrd is not reseting forwarding to 0 AFTER the starting
one has set it to 1
or the stoppping olsr shoudl only reset it when he finds no other olsrds
running on the system,..
