Ask questionsNode crashes when writing data on HTTP2 stream that meanwhile terminates

  • Version: v8.12.0
  • Platform: OSX, Darwin mymac.local 17.7.0 Darwin Kernel Version 17.7.0: Thu Jun 21 22:53:14 PDT 2018; root:xnu-4570.71.2~1/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64
  • Subsystem: http2

When performing something along the lines of:

const http2Session = ...;
const outHeaders = { ... };
const req = http2Session.request({ ...outHeaders, [HTTP2_HEADER_PATH]: path });
const body: Buffer[] = [];
let headers: IncomingHttpHeaders = {};
      .on("response", (hs) => headers = hs)
      .on("data", (chunk) => body.push(chunk))
      .on("error", (error) => reject(error))
      .on("end", () => resolve({
        status: parseInt(headers[HTTP2_HEADER_STATUS], 10),
        body: Buffer.concat(body),

and the NGINX server becomes unavailable (shutsdown, GOAWAY, sessions close) sometimes we get the following error:

node[25931]: ../src/ int node::TLSWrap::DoWrite(node::WriteWrap *, uv_buf_t *, size_t, uv_stream_t *): Assertion `(ssl_) != (nullptr)' failed.

Expected behavior:

Native error is caught and converted in something NodeJS can handle instead of crashing the whole process.

I’m closing this as v8.x is no longer supported … sorry if that wasn’t the outcome everyone was hoping for, but there aren’t going to be any more v8.x releases at this point.
