I don't know anything about Carrierwave or Fog; but is there any chance they (or anything in your app) could be sending a SIGKILL signal to the process? So you see the "reaped ... SIGKILL" message, but no corresponding message like "worker=... PID:... timeout (... > ...), killing"? It sounds like somebody else is sending SIGKILL to a worker... Is this AWS EC2 instance running Linux? Check the kernel log (dmesg) to see if you're hitting the OOM killer, since the kernel OOM killer will also send SIGKILL to processes using too much memory. How big are the files you're uploading? Can you reproduce this making small file uploads? Honestly, there's no reason any process should become memory-dependent based on the size of the file being uploaded; but maybe some code doesn't know how to stream correctly :< Fwiw, unicorn itself has always designed for handling multi-gigabyte uploads with stable memory usage in mind. Other code I've seen, not so much, unfortunately. > Whenever a worker is reaped, Nginx also logs an error for each > reaping instance with message: " upstream prematurely closed > connection while reading response header from upstream ..."

Any help regarding this would be > appreciated. Which unicorn version is this? There used to be some timeout calculation bugs in the old days, but those were over five years ago, maybe even before unicorn 1.0. Just covering all your bases, Also, is there any chance your system clock is being changed? If you're using unicorn 5.0.0+ with Ruby 2.1+, it'll be able to use the monotonic clock, making it immune to time changes. Thanks for any info you can provide!
