B4J Question Socket Closed Error


Licensed User

I am running a non ui app on my vps to download a data from remote server and process that data to my database ( the db running on the same server with java app ) via a php file.

First step that downloads data from remote never gives an error , but randomly the second steps gives the following error , there are no patterns , sometimes it gives error 20 out of 25 tries and i cant fix the problem

The error is repating with the following error: I am not familiar much so do you have any idea what may cause it ? The interesting thing is i get this error not while getting the data from remote server but while calling the php file on the same sserver of java app to process to database. I always get basarisiz2 in the logs which is the job fail of calling the local php for the job: datayolla

this is my code:

Sub Process_Globals
    Dim timeryenile As Timer
    Dim csu As CallSubUtils
End Sub

Sub AppStart (Args() As String)

End Sub
Sub JobDone(Job As HttpJob)

        If Job.JobName="j" Then
            If Job.Success Then
                Dim anne As String = Job.GetString
                '    Log(Job.GetSize/1000)

                Dim yolla As HttpJob
                yolla.Initialize("datayolla", Me)
                Log("basarisiz1" & DateTime.Date(DateTime.Now))
            End If

        End If

        If Job.JobName="datayolla" Then
            If Job.Success Then
                Dim yolla As HttpJob
                yolla.Initialize("datayolla", Me)
                Log("basarisiz2" & Job.ErrorMessage)
            End If
            '            Log(Job.GetString)
        End If

End Sub
Sub timeryenile_tick
        Dim gun As Int = DateTime.GetDayOfWeek(DateTime.Now)
        If gun=1 Or gun = 7 Then
            timeryenile.Interval=1800000 'her yarim saat
        End If

    End Try
End Sub
Sub timerayarla
End Sub
Sub veri_al

    Dim j As HttpJob
    j.Initialize("j", Me)
End Sub

What do you mean with java app? B4J app?

Based on the error, the timeout value is too short.
yes b4j app , timeout value is not short indeed if we think that , the job is only calling a php file on the same machine . Am I wrong ?

Based on the error message, 2 seconds, is not enough.
I can make it 30 seconds for example but the data has to be updated every 2 seconds normally , and this error just happens sometimes , sometimes no problem happens. What I cant understand is While downloading a data from remote server 2 seconds is enough but not while calling a local php file. There must be a mistake by me in somewhere but i cant find it. if i set timeout to a higher value , processing of data will be very long like and normally it should take some miliseconds to deliver a 10 kb data to a php file.

PHP can be slow. Switch to B4J and it will run faster...
I use poststring , is the timeout value just for downloading the php or it also includes the things being done in php ? I mean lets say i send a data to php and inside php other things are being done , is the timeout value just for sending the data or for all the processes ? If it is for just sending the data it is too weird. I set it to 5 seconds and still problems

What does the php do?
Requesting data from a 3rd party website? And the website does respond "in time"? Means; It is FAST responsing the result?
I get the data from remote server woth b4j app and send it to php, php parses the data and updates the values in my database . What i cant understand is , timeout problem only occurs between 08.30 gmt to 12 gmt , other than these hours there are no problems , people say that maybe peak times results in slowness but that is not the case because no problem with getting the data from remote , problem only happens in local things like calling the php and updating the data in database.

Maybe peak-time at your provider where the php is running.
But php provider is also where the b4j app is running and also the database os there , so peak times should not affect it. . At those times i ping the php files host and it gives bery very fast results.

the real important thing is tje job must be completed in 2 seconds because the data has to be updated every 2 seconds. I added some more logging to b4j app which send the data to php , job completion times are interesting. The problem only happens at 08.00 GMT and 12.00 GMT . For example for the last 5 minutes these are the job completeion times of the job which send data to php :

as you can see there are big flactuations , and I totally disabled the timeout value which at the 28th second fails automaticly. I also send this to vps provider.

other than 09.00 GMT and 12.00 GMT job always gets completed in 0.5 seconds at most. but between this times as you can see it starts to icnrease and at the peak time around 09.00 GMT it goes up to 28 seconds .

The problem (or issue) is most probably in the Apache(?) server.

Switch to B4J. You will get better performance.
How should I use the b4j app to update the databases instead of sending the data to php and make the db changes in php ?

Currently I am sending the downloaded data in b4j app to a php file and php file handles the database operations. How can directly connect to database and add or update db rows with b4j app without a php ? I always worked with php files.

( I will check the opcache for apache by the way )
