I’m getting a Mutex cleaned, application could not launch error on one of my Xojo Cloud applications. Can you folks take a look at it? If you need additional information on which app it is please let me know.
And yes, I have restarted the server (yesterday) but that did not clear the error.
Bob - does that go away if you log in to the control panel and delete the app?
That did the trick. Thanks.
I did this, and reset the server. Things worked. Then in the middle of working with my app, I refreshed the browser and got this error again.
If I delete the app, doesn’t that mean that I need to redeploy it?
Rather than deleting the app, I quit the app from control panel, and that took care of the problem. It would be good to know what causes this, so we can avoid it happening.
We had a lot of those a few moths back. It was rather painful to isolate it
Xojo said it was either a memory leak in my code or a plugin. (99% sure it was the mysql plugin )
At any rate XC was spawning multiple instance of the app. When there were multiple instances there were Mutex errors
On Xojos advice (thanks Greg!) we added a small utility app that ran: top -b -n 1 in a shell so we could watch for it.
its still running on our dev instance: http://xc.jaymenna.com/Load/
Sometimes we simply had to shut the server completely down (Restart it) as we could not reach in and kill a “Clone”

Are we able to SSH into our cloud accounts? If so, I know how to run TOP with PuTTY. If not, how did you install the TOP utility (or how did you invoke it)?
Top is already installed, he’s calling it using a shell object.
-b = batch mode
-n 1 = only run once
