download failed (SOCK: No Buffer space available)

Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

I use Serlib, but I notice that GSA creates many processes in the background and they are not closed after finishing, however I see that other URLs also have this problem "download failed (SOCK: No Buffer space available)"

Does anyone have any idea why?

    when I kill the processes via cmd, GSA starts working again.
  • I get this error all the time and have been for a while now.   It's something to do with the Chrome driver/browser not closing when using Serlib.  When i don't use it, that error doesn't happen any longer. 

    I know Serlib has done several fixes to address this,  I just sent him a message the other day about the same error popping up again,  but I haven't seen a response yet.

  • I saw similar behavior as well with to many browsers early on and like @Hunar mentioned there have been several fixes and a way to limit browser threads.

    Setting to 1 thread and scripting and engine there was no issue.

    Something with many browsers no closing was happening, in other uses.

    I thought adding like window.close() to end of browser script on submit success would help, but maybe not.

    I would do the same thing, kill the processes and it would start working better for normal use.

    This is something that probably will need to be "ironed out" and updated moving forward, I assume.

    Though, when I assume it can make an "ass of u and me" :D

    I really am hopeful this browser issue has solution for SER moving forward :)

    Did you try limiting to a lower "browser based thread count" and retry on fresh project?

    Unfortunately this problem has not yet been resolved, today there was another Serlib update, let's see if @AliTab or @Sven can resolve this issue.

    Many Chrome processes start in the background, which ends up locking the system and SER stops working, but sometimes I kill the processes, but I've even had to restart the server to solve it.

    I'm hopeful to resolve this issue, GSA BE more amazing every day!

  • Yeah sadly, that's the only solution i've found,  I'll have over 3-4k processing running sometimes, all due to Chrome driver, etc. etc. and I'll have to restart my Server.    I also found a weird thing where Serlib adds a ton of files to my Program files directory,  and i have to delete them,  sometimes it's over 20 gigs of stuff.  It's deff weird.

    Has anyone else seen that same issue?

    I noticed that one of the servers, the disk filled up quickly, but I hadn't identified it yet.

    which directory are the files?

    I think this is my problem too...
  • For me it was in my program files.  There was thousands of them.    It's the same on quite a few of my servers.   Not sure where it might be on yours tho?

    I've conducted another review of the core codes and implemented a change to ensure browsers are strictly closed after submission. I hope this resolves the issue permanently. The new update is ready, and I'll send it to Sven to integrate it, along with the new support for Hcaptcha and Cloudflare Turnstile.

    @Allan, @Hunar, the presence of those files indicates that the Chrome instances aren't closing as intended, as they're supposed to be automatically deleted. Therefore, if this new update resolves the issue, you shouldn't observe files accumulating on your main Windows drive.

    Please test this after Sven releases the update and share your feedback in this thread.

  • @Sven, Nice work!

    Great to see @AliTab the documentation page was updated and some extra support for getting some more advanced engines coded ----> https://gsaserlists.com/serlib-documentation/

    Thank-You!

    Hello,

    Unfortunately, the GSA continues to open thousands of processes in the background.

    I created a task to kill these processes every hour, but it's still not enough, Windows freezes and it's not possible to kill the processes.

    The big problem is Tier 2, I think that because there are many active engines, the GSA ends up crashing, no matter how much I limit the use of windows and threads.

    At this moment I will only work with 2 active campaigns per Tier 2, to avoid crashes.

    Today delete more than 1 million temporary files that filled the server disk.
  • Your using windows server v? 

    Can there be a difference between windows 10/11 and server as far as the way they operate?

    I don't see any crashes here. 

    Maybe try testing a bit faster even though doing that way will likely just increase chances of links being deleted.

  • Are you using old windows server such as 2012 R2? we have seen this with older version of windows due to the IE version is phased out and being blocked by many websites as it reached it EOL, likely you are and to fix this you just need a newer version of WIndows that has newer IE as GSA SER relay on it

    I use 2012 and 2016.

    2012 is even more problematic, I will update this server soon to reduce these problems.
