the publisher hung when it did the publishment the first time

Hi All
I am a beginer of ICE and have an issue need to be solved. Anybody can help
me?
When I ran my process, sometime it hung for about 5-6 minutes when it did
the publishment the first time. The process just hung when it did the first
publishment. But if the issue not happend at the first time, it run fluently
and will not hung any more. If the icebox serice and publisher process ran
in the same machine, the probability is very low; otherwise,they run in the
different machine, the probability is about 40%.

The below is my test code, I modified the clock example of Ice-3.4.2-demos
//add 2 lines in the file Publisher.cpp
139 while(true)
140 {
141 cout<<"start"<<endl; // add before send
142 clock->tick(IceUtil::Time::now().toDateTime());
143 cout<<"end"<<endl; // add after send
144 IceUtil::ThreadControl::sleep(IceUtil::Time::seconds(1));
145 }

Most time, my program can out 'start' and 'end'. When the issue occured,I
just can see the 'start', and the program hung for 5-6 minutes. Anybody has
the same experience,pls teach me to solve it. Thanks a lot of in advance.

    Hello,

    Welcome to our forums!

    I suspect this hang is caused by the following:

    - the computer where your IceStorm server is running has multiple network interfaces, and only one of them is reachable by your client/publisher.

    - you configured IceStorm to listen on all these interfaces, and to include ("publish") all these interfaces in the proxies it creates (no -h is equivalent to -h *):
    #
    # This property defines the endpoints on which the IceStorm
    # TopicManager listens.
    #
    IceStorm.TopicManager.Endpoints=default -p 10000

    #
    # This property defines the endpoints on which the topic
    # publisher objects listen. If you want to federate
    # IceStorm instances this must run on a fixed port (or use
    # IceGrid).
    #
    IceStorm.Publish.Endpoints=tcp -p 10001:udp -p 10001

    - your publisher/client gets a proxy with all these interfaces (endpoints), attempts to connect to an unreachable endpoint, and this connection attempt takes several minutes to fail

    - Ice then tries the next endpoint, the connection establishment succeeds, and the next requests reuse this established connection.

    The solution is to specify the interfaces to listen on and publish in your object adapter Endpoints configuration, i.e.:
    IceStorm.TopicManager.Endpoints=tcp -h 192.168.3.94 -p 10000
    IceStorm.Publish.Endpoints=tcp -h 192.168.3.94 -p 10001:udp -h 192.168.3.94 -p 10001

    This way, the first connection attempt will use the desired endpoint and succeed.

    See Object Adapter Endpoints - Ice 3.4 - ZeroC for more details on this topic.

    Best regards,
    Bernard
