Description dhalgren.tor 2016-04-11 03:57:08 CEST
"unbound-control dump_requestlist" shows only thread #0 with two-thread libevent build of daemon.  Thread #1 absent from report.

Hi Dhalgren,

The command simply won't print the other threads requestlist.  It was considered too time consuming to implement for a debug inspection.  If you want to know such details you could, as a workaround, set verbosity to 4, (temporarily perhaps with unbound-control) and then every thread prints their requestlist into log (when they do something).

Best regards, Wouter

The command help and documentation should state this clearly to save people time (reporting a bug) and so they realize the information is not complete.  Caused me some confusion while analyzing an issue.

Hi Dhalgren,

Yes, certainly.  Sorry for the confusion.

Best regards, Wouter

Hi Dhalgren,

Which help places did you look at (i.e. need update)?  The man page says so already, but it is fine to repeat it elsewhere too.

Best regards, Wouter

Would have helped me if the output from 'unbound-control -h' instead of

dump_requestlist      show what is worked on


dump_requestlist      show what is worked on, thread #0 only
Comment 6 Wouter Wijngaards 2016-04-13 08:12:13 CEST

Okay, fixed (with: "show what is worked on by first thread").

Best regards, Wouter
