#1464 closed defect (fixed)

Deadlock between PJSUA LOCK and conference mutex (thanks Marcus Froeschl for the report)

Reported by: nanang Owned by: bennylp
Priority: normal Milestone: release-1.14
Component: pjsua-lib Version: common
Keywords: Cc:
Backport to 1.x milestone: Backported:


Deadlock scenario:

Thread 1 (audio playback thread):

  1. play_cb() calls conference get_frame()
  2. conference mutex is acquired, and conf starts collecting frames from ports
  3. wav player (a conf port member) triggers EOF callback to application
  4. application calls pjsua_conf_disconnect()
  5. check_snd_dev_idle() in pjsua_conf_disconnect() tries to acquire PJSUA LOCK that is being held by thread 2.

Thread 2 (pjsua worker thread):

  1. pjsua_call_on_state_changed() invoked
  2. PJSUA LOCK is acquired
  3. pjsua triggers on_call_state() callback to application
  4. application calls pjsua_conf_connect()
  5. pjsua_conf_connect() waits for conference mutex that is being held by thread 1.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

(In [3977]) Fix #1464: Only use PJSUA lock in PJSUA implementations of INVITE session callbacks when updating 'pjsua_var' is needed, while updating 'pjsua_call' should be enough with call/dialog lock (which is actually being held by the INVITE session layer during invoking its callback).

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
