Occasional problem with uploading small images to Amazon S3

Reported by Joe Van Dyk | September 6th, 2007 @ 02:53 PM

Here's the backtrace.

It doesn't happen all the time, just some of the time. Not sure how to reproduce it.

    I had the same issue, it actually messed up my Mongrel where I had to restart it after this error, otherwise it would run out of memory. The issue occurred for me after Mongrel is up and running for a while (try attaching something, waiting for a while, and then attaching it again - it doesn't seem to occur right away). Anyways, I turned the persistent connection off, and it seemed a little better. I think I still got an error once in a while, not sure if it was network related (slightly different stack trace), but it did not bring the server down as before.

    I modified the s3_backend.rb class locally and added a persistent connection option, which I set to false on all my configurations:

    Base.establish_connection!(

    :access_key_id => s3_config[:access_key_id],

    :secret_access_key => s3_config[:secret_access_key],

    :server => s3_config[:server],

    :port => s3_config[:port],

    :use_ssl => s3_config[:use_ssl],

    :persistent => s3_config[:persistent]

    )

    • State changed from “new” to “invalid”

    I moved the S3 upload process to an external rake task and haven't had issues. I wouldn't really recommend uploading stuff to S3 in a Rails action anyway, you'll hold the process up.

    Hi Rick,

    I'm experiencing a similar problem when uploading images (not using RMagick) to Amazon S3 intermittently, killing my mongrel requiring a restart.

    Error in mongrel.log

    Any ideas?

    I'm not sure why this is marked as invalid, it's definitely a real problem that MANY people are seeing as a quick google search shows.

    I had this exact problem and the cause of it was that the s3 connection was being established with :persistent => true

    Well the formatting didn't work so well that time, I give up. Anyway the point is to add ":persistent => false".

    Hans March 16th, 2008 @ 08:53 AM

    This is absolutely not an invalid ticked. I am finding I have to restart my production cluster every 90 minutes or so if there is active uploading to S3 with attachment_fu.

    During the months of November/December of 2008, when we weren't adding any new products to our system (and, quid-pro-quo, not uploading to S3), the total number of production cluster restarts were three - and each of those was due to a functionality change.

  • Paul Dowman

    Paul Dowman March 16th, 2008 @ 09:48 AM

    @Hans: does the :persistent => false change help?

  • Hans

    Hans March 16th, 2008 @ 11:34 AM

    I am rolling that in to the production cluster today after finishing testing. We'll see, I won't know until the users are back at work late in the day on Monday.

  • Paul Dowman

    Paul Dowman April 21st, 2008 @ 01:19 PM

    Can somebody please let me know why this is marked as invalid? Anybody...?

  • Hans

    Hans April 21st, 2008 @ 04:46 PM

    The persistent flag appears to have solved the issue. We have been running with it for about a month (and probably 3,000 uploads) without any hangs.

    Thanks!
