Re: libssh write problem


Thank you for your answer. But unfortunately, this was observed on
production system for which I did not have debug information.
But my stack trace shows a poll call when I am writing on ssh channel. Why
do we need a poll on socket when writing to a channel?

Also netstat shows no ssh socket open. So at socket level, socket is
closed, but poll is still not returned. Why is call trace struck at poll? I
am assuming this poll is poll on the socket.

Thanks and Regards,
