Description YOUZHONG YANG 2017-11-04 05:21:29 UTC
Recently I started evaluating FreeBSD, including the Samba software.

Unfortunately once I set 'use sendfile = yes' in Samba, and then tried to launch an application from the samba share, it hung. The application is not a small one, it loads thousands of files from the server to Windows client.

It appears the sendfile() failed with EAGAIN:

# dtrace -n 'syscall::sendfile:return /arg1 == -1/ {ustack(); printf("errno = %d", errno);}'

then Samba process 'smbd' tried to send data using writev(), but writev() failed repeatedly with EAGAIN:

# dtrace -n 'syscall::writev:return /arg1 == -1/ {ustack(); printf("errno = %d", errno);}'

The FreeBSD version is 11.1-RELEASE, and Samba is 4.6.8. I don't know how to reproduce it without using Samba.

I can do dtrace. Please let me know what can be done next to find out the root cause of the issue. By the way, I am not familiar with the FreeBSD src code.
