I like #2. I think this patch ought to do it.

It seems that the upstream tpmac project is not on Github, who should I submit this to?

I think the reason it is not working is that a read timeout is probably expected during “normal” operation of the driver in some circumstances.  That messes up the logic for "disconnectOnReadTimeout" because it will then disconnect when you don’t want it to.

 

There are a couple of possible solutions:

1)      In the code before the expected read timeout temporarily disable "disconnectOnReadTimeout", then re-enable it after the expected read timeout.  You do this with the asynOption interface to drvAsynIPPort.

 

2)      Implement the disconnectOnReadTimeout logic inside the PMAC driver itself.  You call pasynCommon->disconnect on unexpected read timeouts, but don’t call it on expected read timeouts.

FWIW, what I noticed is that, after the controller is powered off, netstat (netstat -oc | grep 1025) reports that TCP retries are happening. If I power the controller back on while retries are still ongoing, after the current retry timer expires the connection is re-established.

So while just removing the "if (!commsError)" check seems to be enough for the connection to be re-established, it seems that telling the asyn to close the connection would be the way to go, as you mention. It would be nice if Mark's suggestion of using "disconnectOnReadTimeout" option worked for PMAC, though.

Hej Bruno and all,

I think you are hunting a very issue (if someone asks me)
I can have a look the next days, I remember that I was digging
into the connection handling (especially the disconnection handling)
for some time ago.

Unless someone has a simulator for the pmac, I will dig in my
old source codes and try to get the one working, which I
once had been running.

One problem which I see here:
 if (!commsError) {
    status = pasynOctetSyncIO->writeRead(lowLevelPortUser_ ,
                                         command, strlen(command),
                                         response, PMAC_MAXBUF_,
                                         PMAC_TIMEOUT_,
                                         &nwrite, &nread, &eomReason );

    if (status) {
asynPrint(lowLevelPortUser_, ASYN_TRACE_ERROR, "%s: Error from pasynOctetSyncIO->writeRead. command: %s\n", functionName, command);


is that we don't tell asyn that we "feel" disconnected.
The good handling would be to close() the underlying socket.
The next step would be to tell asyn "we are disconnected"

This is done here asyn/drvAsynSerial/drvAsynIPPort.c like this:
    /* If recv() returns 0 on a SOCK_STREAM (TCP) socket, the connection has closed */
    if ((thisRead == 0) && (tty->socketType == SOCK_STREAM)) {
        epicsSnprintf(pasynUser->errorMessage,pasynUser->errorMessageSize,
                      "%s connection closed",
                      tty->IPDeviceName);
        closeConnection(pasynUser,tty,"Read from broken connection");
        reason |= ASYN_EOM_END;
    }

Then we -should- see the reconnect attempts from asyn, shouldn't we ?
(And handle them)

So, I think I found the culprit:

https://github.com/epicsdeb/pmacasyn/blob/master/pmacApp/pmacAsynMotorPortSrc/pmacController.cpp#L325

Inside lowLevelWriteRead, if a communications error was previously detected, writeRead is *not* called, which I think prevents asyn from executing its reconnection logic. If I comment out this check everything seems to work correctly.

However, since I am not too familiar with this driver, I don't know if removing this check will have unintended consequences elsewhere.

    After 20 min (see below), I powered the controller back on, but the

    As Mark mentioned, it seems that Linux takes some time to shutdown the
    socket. My previous tests (using pasynManager->isConnected to probe for
    connection status) seemed to show that it takes ~15min on this particular
    system for isConnected to go from 1 to 0. It also seems that by turning the
    controller back on isConnected goes from 0 to 1. So my current suspicion is
    in agreement with Mark's comments: something might be off in the interpose
    code.


    I will continue investigating.

        Hej Bruno,
        what is tpmac-asyn 3.10.12 ?

        The printouts you are pointing out ("command: #2 ? F P") seem to come from
        .../epicsdeb/pmacasyn/pmacApp/pmacAsynMotorPortSrc/pmacAxis.cpp

        Which seems to be a classic model 3 driver (?).

        I am unsure which SW you are running.

        Could you send us the whole st.cmd ?
        And may be a receipe how to get the modules you are using,
        tpmac-asyn, which motor. Are you using git clone ? Or wget ?



            Regarding pmacAsynIPConfigure, it immediately calls
            drvAsynIPPortConfigure:
            https://github.com/epicsdeb/pmacasyn/blob/master/pmacApp/pmacAsynIPPortSrc/pmacAsynIPPort.c#L184

            You're right that the return code is asynError (from queueLockPort
            [asynManager.c:1832]) but queueRequest returns asynDisconnected
            [asynManager.c:1505]. I added more debugging.


            I noticed two things:

            1. If the IOC starts with the controller powered off, the above
            messages are printed. asyn/tpmac correctly knows the device is
            disconnected, but there's no attempt at a reconnection, so powering
            it on doesn't do anything. Here's the report in this case:

            asynManager::queueLockPort queueRequest failed: port P0 not connected

                 Hi Bruno,____

                 __ __

                 What version of asyn are you using?____

                 __ __

                 What version of tpmac are you using?____

                 __ __

                 __Ø__2018/02/12 12:00:14.826
            pmacController::lowLevelWriteRead: Error from
                 pasynOctetSyncIO->writeRead. command: #2 ? F P
                 2018/02/12 12:00:14.826 drvPmacAxisGetStatus: not all status
            values
                 returned. Status: 3
                 Command :#2 ? F P____

                 __ __

                 Note that Status: 3 is asynError, not asynDisconnected.____

                 __ __

                 Are you sure that asyn really thinks the port is disconnected
            at this
                 time?  You should run asynReport on that port to see whether
            asyn thinks it
                 is disconnected or not.____

                 __ __

                 One problem is that when you power-off an IP device on Linux
            it takes quite
                 a while before the OS decides the socket is disconnected.             Before that time
                 it returns an error like “Resource temporarily unavailable”.             During this
                 time asyn will not try to reconnect, because it thinks it is still
                 connected.____

                 __ __

                 This behavior is one reason that the drvAsynIPPort driver was
            enhanced in
                 R4-29 to support the disconnectOnReadTimeout option.  If this
            option is
                 enabled then the port will automatically disconnect whenever
            there is a
                 read timeout.____

                 *Subject:* PMAC asyn autoconnect issue____

                 __ __

                 Hi,____

                 I've been investigating an issue with the PMAC driver regarding
                 reconnection via Ethernet. When the controller is powered off
            the IOC
                 starts emitting messages like the following (as expected):

                 2018/02/12 12:00:14.826 pmacController::lowLevelWriteRead:
            Error from
                 pasynOctetSyncIO->writeRead. command: #2 ? F P
                 2018/02/12 12:00:14.826 drvPmacAxisGetStatus: not all status
            values
                 returned. Status: 3
                 Command :#2 ? F P____

                 __ __

                 __ __

                 However, when the controller is powered on again, the IOC does not
                 re-establish the connection (even though noAutoConnect is set
            to zero).____

                 This is the sequence of calls that lead to these messages:____

                 lowLevelWriteRead calls pasynOctetSyncIO->writeRead
                 pasynOctetSyncIO->writeRead calls pasynManager->queueLockPort____

                 pasynManager->queueLockPort calls pasynManager->queueRequest____

                 queueRequest sets checkPortConnect = TRUE____

                 __ __

                 Since the port is disconnected, queueRequest returns an error
            https://github.com/epics-modules/asyn/blob/87e784335736de782980b7600bd7d6e42179511a/asyn/asynDriver/asynManager.c#L1505
            <https://github.com/epics-modules/asyn/blob/87e784335736de782980b7600bd7d6e42179511a/asyn/asynDriver/asynManager.c#L1505>
                            <https://github.com/epics-modules/asyn/blob/87e784335736de782980b7600bd7d6e42179511a/asyn/asynDriver/asynManager.c#L1505
            <https://github.com/epics-modules/asyn/blob/87e784335736de782980b7600bd7d6e42179511a/asyn/asynDriver/asynManager.c#L1505>>____

                 If checkPortConnected was FALSE autoConnectDevice would be
            called later on
                 and a new connection would be attempted. But for this
            particular call chain
                 checkPortConnected is always set to TRUE.____

                 Now, since queueRequest fails a request is never queued and
                 pasynManager->portThread's autoConnectDevice is also not reached.

                 ____

                 So my question is how to properly configure/trigger an auto
            connect?____
