Problem with cygserver (LookupAccountSid()) -- interlocking with its clients




Hi all,

We're having the following problem (on a subset(*) of Windows-10 machines) with running cygserver.

Started afresh, strace shows no activity in it, but should I execute a command (ipcs in the example below), then cygserver begins to experience freezes like these:

Look at the times, they are ginormous!  We also seem to have no idea what the shown SID is!  It looks very random, and changes when cygserver gets restarted.

On the side of a running ipcs, the above manifests as if the utility worked extremely slowly.  Strace shows the execution is synced with cygserver's delays, and is getting blocked while trying to communicate via the cygserver pipe to obtain the SYSV information, in particular:

Interesting that the SID retrieval activity in cygserver does not seem to stop entirely when its only client, ipcs, exits.

Any insights will be highly appreciated.

Thanks,
Anton Lavrentiev

(*)  All Windows-10 machines (~300) that we have here seem to have cygserver's pulling some random SIDs and failing with the same error, 1332.  But that usually happens pretty quickly (yet still, noticeable).  Only on a subset of hosts (less than 5%), we see these extremely long delays, causing the apps failures due to timeouts.
