I'm getting the following backtrace in my uWSGI logs, I don't know where to begin looking to figure this out:

DAMN ! worker 5 (pid: 29056) died :( trying respawn ...
Respawned uWSGI worker 5 (new pid: 29088)
DAMN ! worker 6 (pid: 29080) died :( trying respawn ...

!!! uWSGI process 29089 got Segmentation Fault !!!

I'm running uWSGI version 2.0.9 together with django 1.7.4 and nginx 1.6 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. This is my uWSGI app config:

#limit-as=4096 # can cause problems with some application (especially on 64bit)?
idle = 3600
memory-report = True

This is the nginx conf:

worker_processes 8; # 12 cores
worker_rlimit_nofile 100000;
pid /var/run/nginx.pid;
events {
    worker_connections 16384;
    use epoll;
    multi_accept on;

Additionally the following error appears sometimes:

This code was running without errors on a machine with 6 cores and ubuntu 12.04 LTS... Any ideas would be great... Thanks

  • We found the bug: a new version of xxtea for python caused the error.

  • The issue was solved in XXTEA v0.2.1: github.com/ifduyue/xxtea/issues/6 Dec 2 '15 at 14:41
  • Correction, it wasn't solved. We thought it was. Dec 2 '15 at 21:04
  • The issue is still caused by xxtea.so (xxtea.py works so far but is much slower)

It's caused by an unbound write. This bug is fixed in 1.0, please upgrade https://pypi.python.org/pypi/xxtea/1.0

Thank for reporting the issue.
