¿Qué podría estar causando este bloqueo en libzmq.dll?

I have an x64 C# application running on the .NET Framework 4.0 x64, which uses the clrzmq-x64 2.2.2 (from NuGet) for CeroMQ.

It's working fine when I debug it (i.e.F5) but it only sends about 30 messages a second. If I don't attach the debugger (i.e. CTRL-F5) it manages over 1000 messages a second... but it crashes after about 30 seconds.

I'm having trouble diagnosing the problem because the point where it crashes isn't in my code.

I've pasted all the information I can find that might be useful, but I'm struggling to know how to interpret the stack trace.

Basically, on a busy Windows system, in which many ZMQ sockets are frequently created and destroyed, creation of a socket implies creation of a pair of internal sockets, and this might fail with the same stack you show above. What's worse, on a non-debug build the exception causes the socket creation code to abandon a taken critical section, which then causes subsequent attempts at socket creation to hang forever.

The link above has a fix that we are testing as I type this.

The fix works as expected. We can't see anymore these failures while creating sockets nor we see create_socket hanging forever afterwards. - gabriele giuseppini

Is it possible you are creating new sockets all the time ? In that case try to setup the context and the sockets once and reuse them.

I'm using a shared Context but creating multiple Sockets in different Tasks. If I share the Socket then a REQ/REP with framed messages doesn't work because one Task might be trying to Send() or SendMore() on that socket while another is calling Recv(). I guess I need a way of limiting the Sockets to a pool so I don't hit this limit. - tom Robinson
