Hi Henrique,

Thanks for this.  It looks like fdbrestore() is using the message queue before the save_restore task has created it.  request_manual_restore() should defend itself against this, but that wouldn't solve the problem of allowing code to call it before it can be called successfully.  I should fix this so any code that starts the save_restore task waits until the task is fully functional before returning.

A workaround for now would be to call epicsThreadSleep(1.) between create_triggered_set() (which starts the save_restore task if it's not already started) and fdbrestore().

Subject: Autosave called epicsMessageQueueSend with opMsgQueue==NULL


 Hello, I'm testing an IOC that uses autosave-5-6-1 from synApps 5.8 and I'm seeing a large amount of crashes during IOC boot. Spreading debug messages through EPICS code showed that autosave was calling the function epicsMessageQueueSend() with a null message queue object, for example:

(...)
iocRun: All initialization complete
makeAutosaveFileFromDbInfo("/usr/local/epics/apps/config/SOL1/autosave/parker_positions1.req", "autosaveFields_pass0")
dbpf SOL1:PARKER1:m1.SSET 1
DBR_SHORT:          1         0x1                 
create_triggered_set("parker_positions1.req", SOL1:PARKER1:autosave.VAL, "")
fdbrestore("parker_positions1.sav")
save_restore:fdbrestore:entry
../save_restore.c:request_manual_restore:2678 Called epicsMessageQueueSend with opMsgQueue=NULL
pmg=NULL
save_restore:806
Falha de segmentação (imagem do núcleo gravada)

Core dump backtrace shows the same problem:

(gdb) bt

Can anybody confirm this problem ? Here is the relevant st.cmd snippet:

set_requestfile_path("${MOTORHYPPIE_AUTOSAVE}", "")
set_savefile_path("${MOTORHYPPIE_AUTOSAVE}", "")
set_pass0_restoreFile("parker_positions1.sav")
save_restoreSet_NumSeqFiles(0)
save_restoreSet_DatedBackupFiles(0)

pxiCreateSM("motor","COM3PARKER1Motor1")

motorHyppieSetup(10, 1)

motorHyppieConfig(0,"COM3PARKER1Motor1")

dbLoadTemplate ("/usr/local/epics/apps/config/${EPICS_HOSTNAME}/parker_motor1.substitutions")

cd ${TOP}/iocBoot/${IOC}
iocInit

makeAutosaveFileFromDbInfo("${MOTORHYPPIE_AUTOSAVE}/parker_positions1.req", "autosaveFields_pass0")

dbpf SOL1:PARKER1:m1.SSET 1

create_triggered_set("parker_positions1.req", SOL1:PARKER1:autosave.VAL, "")
fdbrestore("parker_positions1.sav")

dbpf SOL1:PARKER1:m1.SUSE 1
