#10819 new defect

pptp and hotplug forkbomb

Reported by: Anton Ryzhov (anton@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: pptp, ppp Cc:


When PPTP tries to connect to server, and server doesn't response, script immediately reconnects.
As far as every connect-disconnect event runs hotplug.d scripts, lots of processes is created rapidly. They takes RAM and CPU, works slower and slower and hangs device.

Option "holdoff" makes redial timeout, allows all scripts run and finish.

Found in "Backfire", affects "trunk" as well.
