JVM arguments  -server -XX:MaxPermSize=192m -XX:+UseParallelGC -Dcoldfusion.rootDir={application.home}/../ -Dcoldfusion.libPath={application.home}/../lib   
As I am not a CF admin and this is my first time working with it most of these settings are the defaults.

CF is installed as the standalone CF server, not the multi-server Jrun install.
Enable Robust Exception Information is on so we get error info on screen at the client

My problem comes when CF locks up. It doesn't log a damn thing to tell me where the problem is and where to start looking (application or code). I have looked at the logs before and after a lockup but I can't find anything saying what happened. Or at least nothing I can understand.

Now the lockup may not be CF caused but I doubt it since the box is standard in all other aspects and has never had a lockup that was traceable to apache or the system itself and both Linux and apache are pretty good about being able to log at least something in a crash.

Is there some way to get cf to do additional logging in english? I even went onsite on a few of the lockups, hoping to catch an exception fault still on screen but nothing, screen won't even unblank once hosed. One interesting thing, when it locks up, low level network services are still available since I can ping the box during a lockup but cannot get any other responce. This of course then hoses our remote rebooter since it needs ping to stop to queue a reboot of the box Sad

I've administered all kinds of servers before and have never had this happen elsewhere. This is the only box running CF and since I can't find any problems elsewhere CF is my suspect.

Any ideas?

Thanks Smiley

<cfif i knew more about coldfusion id be of better help>

but can you write some sort of a logging procedure to
write a massively long comma seperated value log
or xml to a flat file or files on the server so you can trace
the last time the cf interpreter got to what line of your
code....?  Maybe you could pinpoint it to a single
call your trying to make that hoses it if you use the
process of elimination commentin' out one line at a time..


03:05:42::Error Reporting set to zero and allow call time pass reference set to 1
03:05:42::did we make it to here..
03:05:53::Error Reporting set to zero and allow call time pass reference set to 1
03:05:53::did we make it to here..
03:05:53::right before doparse
03:05:53::first line inside of doparse
03:50:27::bottom of whole program..2000 is start file and 2500 is the end.



logit ("Error Reporting set to zero and allow call time pass reference set to 1");

$dir="./tests";//full path name of the text file  directory eg /home/testxml/texts  (without trailing slash) 




// some other code blah blah blah blah

logit("did we make it to here..");



function logit($outstr)
//file_put_contents($filename, $nuoutstr , FILE_APPEND);
// if this were php 5.0+

$handle fopen('xlog1.txt''a'); // append mode



The watched pot, never boils... But if you walk away from it , the soup burns.  What gives?

ugh - ok - thanks Jammaster

I will suggest that to the programmer who handles the site.

I am rapidly arriving at the conclusion of telling her to fix her crappy code since I can't find anything wrong on the server side itself.
