Bug 43268

GemStone/S,,, 6.6.3,, 6.6.2, 6.6.1, 6.6

AIX only


SPC Monitor startup failures on ftok( )

On AIX, startstone will occasionally fail due to a problem with the startup of the shrpcmonitor process.  The SHRPCMON log will contain the following error message:

GemStone could not retrieve the segment key using ftok(). path = /opt/gemstone/locks/<lockname> prodid = 0, error = .
[SpcMon trace]: ... cache creation failed ...


No workaround, but a subsequent startstone will usually work.
