$ ll /usr/local/apache/
ls: /usr/local/apache/: Input/output error

Sounds bad ;-D

Looking at the process information for , I found out that the cwd pointed to a deleted path:

$ ls -l /proc/1234/cwd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 apache apache 0 2012-05-25 08:16 cwd -> /usr/local/apache/common-local/multiversion (deleted)

Although the directory is actually there :-(

Restarting loop ( /etc/init.d/mw-job-runner ), seems to fix the link:

ls -l /proc/6973/cwd

lrwxrwxrwx 1 apache apache 0 2012-05-25 08:24 /proc/6973/cwd -> /usr/local/apache/common-local/multiversion/

/usr/local/apache being a NFS mount :

deployment-nfs-memc:/mnt/export/apache on /usr/local/apache type nfs (rw,bg,soft,tcp,timeo=14,intr,nfsvers=3,addr=

I have no idea what could make it unliked. Maybe the NFS server move the directory somehow or whenever NFS has a connection issue the jobrunner servers considers the file unaccessible permanently.

I am marking 36646 - "get rid of NFS" as a dependency.

Are you sure you haven't deleted and recreated the directory since the process was started? If yes & it happens again, don't restart the process and notify me, I'd like to have a look.

Lowering priority, I have not seen that occurrence I guess. Most probably someone renamed, altered the path.

I guess we can close the bug if it does not occur anymore over then next week or so.

Was some transient issue I have not reproduced seen reproduced so far. So I am just closing this bug and will reopen it later on if it occurs again.
