I has been informed by some SaltOS users that some times the application waits more time that the normal to process requests. I revised some parts of the code and I detected some issues that affects the semaphore_acquire function and the default timeout set to 10 seconds. Now, the semaphore_acquire function is called with the coherent timeouts that prevent to wait long time in some cases. The main responsable of this spurious bug, is the cache_gc routine (the garbage collector) that is executed in all requests and only 1% of the times, acquire the semaphore to execute the real garbage collector and clear all non needed files. In some days, I publish a new release of SaltOS that join all new issues and corrections.
To all who give me encouragement to continue developing SaltOS and RhinOS, I wish you a Merry Christmas. You pass the festivity very well!!!
