I started getting problems with lots of processes accessing mongo
locking up. I ran an experiment where I started up lots of them at the
same time in the background (on a hunch). After a few seconds, they
all reported they had stopped, but the prossess were still hanging
around (status T in ps on Mac). I then have to kill -9 to get rid of
the processes. I ran one in the foreground while the others were hung,
and got this error:

dyld: lazy symbol binding failed: Symbol not found: _system_free
Referenced from: /Users/jonathan/.rvm/gems/ree-1.8.7-2011.03/gems/
bson_ext-1.3.0/ext/bson_ext/cbson.bundle
Expected in: flat namespace

Any ideas what this is before I have to start trudging through C code?

Thanks,
Jonathan Steel

Sounds like a resource problem - either ram or file descriptors an issue?

Not likely. I can get the same problem to occur on a couple boxes. One
of those has hardly anything running on it, and has plenty of
resources. It is interesting to note though that the process I'm
running has had a history over the past few weeks of consuming
ridiculous amounts of memory, which I'm inclined to blame on some
interaction with mongo.

Are you by any chance using the Kiji branch of REE? A Google search
shows reports of this same error:
https://github.com/twitter/rubyenterpriseedition187-248/issues/4
https://gist.github.com/1079161

Are you running OS X Lion?

I am running Snow Leopard, with ruby 1.8.7 (2011-02-18 patchlevel 334)
[i686-darwin10.7.0], MBARI 0x6770, Ruby Enterprise Edition 2011.03.
The other machine I'm having similar issues with is a Linux machine,
but it doesn't print out any errors on that machine.

See ticket for resolution. This was an rvm issue.
