    wget bug


    I downloaded directory with few files, one of them was 18G, then I interruped wget download. After a while when my inet connection get restored I wanted to continue to download missing files so I typed wget with -c opt.

    Wget was checking previously downloaded files and while checking file with size 18G it crashed. Strace output is bellow. Do you have any idea?


    Strace output:

    The file is already fully retrieved; nothing to do.

    wget: memory exhausted
    [{WIFEXITED(s) && WEXITSTATUS(s) == 1}], 0, NULL) = 7346
    rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL, 8) = 0
    --- SIGCHLD (Child exited) @ 0 (0) ---
    wait4(-1, 0x7fff96f1aa58, WNOHANG, NULL) = -1 ECHILD (No child processes)
    rt_sigreturn(0xffffffffffffffff) = 0
    rt_sigaction(SIGINT, {SIG_DFL, [], SA_RESTORER, 0x7fb9cd27b4a0}, {0x43f1e0, [], SA_RESTORER, 0x7fb9cd27b4a0}, 8) = 0
    rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, NULL, [], 8) = 0
    read(255, "", 272) = 0
    exit_group(1) = ?

    If it's repeatable, then you might file a bug with ubuntu-bug.

    ubuntu-bug wget
    If you are looking for a work-around then you might look at curl.

    Watch your RAM and swap using free while downloading large wget jobs. See if it is repeatable. My guess is you ran out of RAM and swap and init had no choice but to kill it.
