I cant test on the original machine anymore (it has gone under
production running Linux with only 48GB ram). So itried to reproduce
it on a smaller and64 machine with only 8GB ram ...
I can't make it crash, as i can't make any network trafic ;)
njoly@lanfeust [~]> cat /dev/zero | rsh localhost dd of=/dev/null bs=2g
dd: stdin: Bad address
0+0 records in
0+0 records out
0 bytes transferred in 114.770 secs (0 bytes/sec)
It doesn't return as fast as your test, the dd process cannot be
killed during that time (even with kill -9), it eats memory and may
make the system unresponsive.
I then checked a few other bs values for the same command line. No
problem with 1024m, 1536m, 2047m ... all other upper values fails. So
there's still something weird with bs >= 2g when piping to rsh. Just
for the record, every value i tested again worked just fine without
rsh after pipe (= locally).
But no crash.
