HTTP 502 When Retrieving Attached Images

(1/2) > >>

Every so often I see one of these errors in my web server log when a user is viewing a topic that includes image attachments:

--- Code: ---X.X.X.X - - [23/Jan/2020:09:33:23 -0500] "GET /forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=27090.0;attach=19466;image HTTP/1.1" 502 182 ";topicseen" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64; rv:68.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/68.0"

--- End code ---

It seems to happen more often when the topic includes multiple large attachments. In the case above, the topic had three images of sizes 3631.5 kB, 5732.19 kB, and 5918.2 kB, though of course the displayed thumbnails are much smaller. This looks like an "out of resources" issue, but I'm not sure which PHP configuration parameter I would need to adjust, or if it even make sense to try.

I've tried placing size limits on attachments. My user community is pretty clueless when it comes to re-sizing images manually, and I always end up with "I can't attach images" complaints when the limits are in place. Is there a way to get SMF to automatically re-size uploaded images?


Image resizing hasn't eliminated the crash problem for me. I still see the occasional crash in my logs when processing image attachments. PHP-FPM log:

--- Code: ---[28-Jan-2020 08:41:11] WARNING: [pool smf] child 18840 exited on signal 7 (SIGBUS - core dumped) after 205.327441 seconds from start

--- End code ---

Note that two of these pools crashed only a few minutes after they were started. Nginx log:

--- End code ---

Are there any PHP FPM configuration variables that need to be looked at? Right now I'm doing this:

--- Code: ---memory_limit = 256M

--- End code ---

In the absence of any other suggestions, I've been tweaking the value of pm.max_requests in my pool config file to respawn processes. I haven't seen any crashes for almost 24 hours now, so this might be a reasonable work-around. I still don't know if the crashes are an FPM issue, an SMF issue, or something else, but this seems to be working for me. An optimal value for anyone else will require experimentation to find the right number of requests.

--- Code: ---; The number of requests each child process should execute before respawning.
; This can be useful to work around memory leaks in 3rd party libraries. For
; endless request processing specify '0'. Equivalent to PHP_FCGI_MAX_REQUESTS.
; Default Value: 0
pm.max_requests = 25

--- End code ---

What version of SMF are you using? Do you have Image Proxy enabled?
