Hi All,

We see our application Hanging at shmctl (SHM_LOCK).

Kernel :  2.6.32-358.el6.x86_64

OS : Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.4 (Santiago)

1.       When it hangs, this is what strace gives:

[RHEL6.4 at bin]# strace -p 23793 Process 23793 attached - interrupt to quit [ Process PID=23793 runs in 32 bit mode. ]

shmget(0x110c1be, 16777216, 0666)       = 3801140

shmat(3801140, 0, 0)                    = 0x85c2c70e7755000

shmctl(3801140, IPC_64|SHM_LOCK, 0^C <unfinished ...>

2.       When we kill the application and generate a core file, Here is what  gdb shows:

Core was generated by ` <our application> 12 12 eth1 -1 0 3 fd5d:d50a:8c17:3300::e6'.

Program terminated with signal 6, Aborted.

What could be the reason for hanging?

Any solution?
