cf. #4008: src/lib/log uses Mutex objects.
IMHO it should not so we have to choose between:

  • remove the mutex stuff
  • define a mono-thread version.

BTW I am in favor of the first (remove the code) as it is simpler.
I keep a medium priority as #4008 depends on it.

I implement in trac4010 the first solution (no mutex as Kea is not multi-threaded).

Replying to fdupont:

Please don't. We have decided on the Kea weekly call yesterday that this ticket goes to outstanding. One of the reasons is that Kea will likely become multithreaded. For example: Kea 1.0 will have a worker thread kicking off periodic timers for lease expiration and decline.

Oops, I am just compiling a Kea without the thread utils. Fortunately I've committed nothing in the branch. BTW even it is not trivial the thread utils were ported to WIN32 so there is no issue with it...
I strongly suggest to update #4008 too.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from accepted to closed

Tested with removal of everything related to thread or mutex in src/lib/log + threads commented in src/lib/util/ SUBDIRS. So the dependency is fully identified and this ticket can be rejected.
