Linux application crashing
We are running Autodesk Maya 8.5 (64 bit) on opensuse 10 and 10.1 (both 64 bit OS) on 400 servers. These servers comprise of HP proliant blade server and IBM x336 series 1U servers.
These servers are configured as render farms for distributed processing (rendering) of maya scenes. The job distribution and scheduling is carried out by a third party software. Maya scenes are comprised of multiple frames. Each frame is rendered on individual server.
Of late we are facing an issue of maya crashing with multiple errors. But the errors are intermittent and the same frame gets rendered on the same server after resubmission.
Error 1 :
*** glibc detected *** /usr/autodesk/maya8.5-x64/bin/maya.bin: free(): invalid pointer: 0x00002aab18cf9010 ***

What could these error mean and how can I troubleshoot them ? I have added following environment variables in /etc/profile for more details on the error.

In modern computer systems, privacy and security are mandatory. However, connections from the outside over public networks automatically imply risks. One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
