Hi,

I am also getting an error which is part of your log. Here it is:

2008/03/17 06:54:43.929 - [ WARNING ] [id: 12] (SmartFoxServer.dispatchEvent): exception > Closing tag does not match opening tag: `room' != `rooo', SystemID='file:.', Line=1

I have no clue why it's there. Is this anything to worry about?

Regards,
darnpunk

The first exception:
2008/03/14 09:18:26.015 - [ WARNING ] [id: 141] (SmartFoxServer.acceptNewConnections): Generic Exception in acceptNewConnections():java.nio.channels.ClosedSelectorException

is a network error. It can occur for many reasons and there is not much to worry about unless you get dozens of them every hour.
It doesn't seem to be the case as the next error was logged 1 day and 13 hours later and it's not the same error.

The next error:
2008/03/15 22:42:47.639 - [ WARNING ] [id: 152] (SmartFoxServer.dispatchEvent): Malformed XML request, MSG:

indicates that the client has sent bad XML data and so it will be discarded.
The error seems to be coming from the same user, so there's probably some problem on the user end.

Hi when you say

there's probably some problem on the user end


The xml data are the xml data of SFS not of the flash file. The flash client don't send xml format it uses the xml protocol of SFS..

I don't undertsand... for me this error is an error of SFS. The proto is XML and it's not flash client which send a bad format....

My flash client call a function which use xml proto but my flash client doesn't build the xml file it's SFS.

Thanks

The server is complaining about the fact that the XML coming from the client is not properly formatted.
So the problem is on the client side. Why this XML is not properly formatted it's difficult to say. Maybe the client is doing an hacking/cracking attempt. Maybe he has network problem.
2008/03/19 15:14:59.943 - [ WARNING ] [id: 157] (ExtensionHandler.processEvent): Extension Call has invalid RoomID. User = edite52 - /41.202.72.128


A call to an extension does not provide a valid room id.
Probably the user failed to join a room, but the code continued its flow and tried to call an extension. Hence the error.

Actually they don't seem to be so many...
Have you ever checked a web server log file? It's filled with infos and errors...
Unless you get dozens of the same errors per hour you shouldn't worry too much. Of course keeping an eye on them is good to find out possible problems in your application.

Hi Lapo,

Code: Select all

2008/03/22 00:12:44.844 - [ WARNING ] [id: 24] (ExtensionHandler.processEvent): Extension Call has invalid RoomID. User = tipas1 - /127.0.0.1


I have found five times this error in the last two days, and everytime from the same user (bluebox user?)

Thanks

These errors are usually fired when a user is sending an extension request but he's not joined a room yet.
To avoid these problems you should make sure that you properly handle the joinRoomError event so that if something goes wrong while joining your code does not allow extension requests to be sent.

I'm also getting:

2008/03/27 02:02:52.617 - [ WARNING ] [id: 20] (SmartFoxServer.acceptNewConnections): Generic Exception in acceptNewConnections():java.nio.channels.ClosedSelectorException

Not a lot of them, but regularly. Could you give a few more details of the sort of thing that might cause this error?

Thanks,

Alex

Usually this indicates a socket error on the client side, during the very initial phase of the connection.
