ImageMagick hangs when resizing png files when running from an AWS Lambda

Post by redserpent7 » 2018-08-12T01:32:18-07:00

Hi,

I have an AWS lambda function that is used to resize images (jpgs and pngs). ImageMagick works fine when converting jpgs. However, when I try to resize a png, it hangs indefinitely.

I am not sure why its doing that, I tried setting my lambda function to timeout at 5 minutes, increased the memory slider to the maximum but nothing is working.

I have run the same binaries that I bundle with my lambda package, deployed on an Amazon Linux EC2 instance, are working just fine. Converting the png on the EC2 instance takes mere seconds yet IM never exits when executed on Lambda.

I tried enabling debug logs with All events and this is the output I'm getting when I run magick with these arguments:

Code: Select all

/var/task/imagemagick/bin/magick -verbose -debug ALL /tmp/C0D45BAED8DE4892B3FCB888B0AB4F33.png[0] -auto-orient -quality 80 -thumbnail 1440x1440 /tmp/C0D45BAED8DE4892B3FCB888B0AB4F33_l.png
This is the output I'm getting:

It always hang on the last line, regardless of the png image given. I tried different png sizes but they all result the same behavior. Resizing a jpg with the same arguments work with no issues, also executing the same binaries on a png file with these arguments but hosted on an Amazon Linux EC2 work with no issues.

I am not sure what else to try or how to figure out whats causing this issue. Can someone give me an idea as to why this is happening?

Out of interest why do you have [0] after your png name. I thought the [0] was just used for multilayer files like photoshop,pdf etc.

We never thought much of it. We also resize tiff images so we always append [0] to the end of filenames. Never had an issue with pngs or jpegs when using that. I tried omitting the layer from the filename, but still get the same issue

Just a thought as there is a read error and I thought the [0] could be causing the problem.

Just a thought as there is a read error and I thought the [0] could be causing the problem.
Yeah thats not the issue, as I said the same arguments work on an EC2 instance, the hang only happens when the command is executed from an AWS Lambda function.

I just want to know if there is any additional information I can get IM to write to the output as I do not see any cause for the hang. And as mentioned in the original post, other extensions work

I don't know what causes the problem, or the cure, but here are some thoughts.

I see that you use /tmp as a location for your images. I suggest you use a different location, at least while solving this problem.

I suggest you check you have plenty of free space in /tmp.

Have you tried a command with no operations, simply reading the png and writing a png?

In the debug output, the lines containing "CLI arg" say what IM thinks its command line is. IM successfully completes "-verbose" and "-debug ALL" and "-read /tmp/C0D45BAED8DE4892B3FCB888B0AB4F33.png[0]". The command didn't actually contain the keyword "-read", but IM inferred it.

Then we expect "-auto-orient" but IM tries to execute the inferred command "-read", with no argument. It expands the filename, to the empty string. Then it checks that it has permission to read files with no names. Then it tries to access a temporary file with its own invented name, "/tmp/magick-23VU2PlAr05Pvm".

Perhaps there is some memory corruption within IM that only happens with AWS lambda functions.

Thanks, for some reason it never crossed my mind to break down the arguments. I tried omitting one argument at a time from the command til I found the culprit.

the '-quality' argument is causing the issue. Its working fine without it. Any ideas?

-quality values means something different for PNG than for JPG. See https://www.imagemagick.org/script/comm ... hp#quality

Also order of settings and operators is important in IM 7. Put -quality last before the output and after the -thumbnail.
