Elasticsearch problems on Seafile Pro

Hi,
I’ve been having this issue for a long time and I thought it was due to the automatic script installation but I’ve spent some time recently manually installing seafile and the issue persists.
On seafile start there are 2 elasticsearch java processes created which causes elasticsearch to crash and restart - this will go on indefinitely with the increasing cpu load and RAM making the server unresponsive.
This issue has been referenced multiple times here in the forum:




I am hosting seafile (pro edition) on a Kimsufi server. I have installed it on a KVM VM at home and the issue is not present - so, I thought it was due to something OVH may have done to the kernel which led me to install ubuntu (tried 16.04, 18.04 and 20.04) from debootstrap but the issue remains with all editions.

It has nothing to do with lack of RAM (server has 4GB, there is only 1 user and the issue is present when I first start seafile right after installation, without any data, any libraries or even any seahub user created); I have also checked values at seafile-server-latest/pro/elasticsearch/config/jvm.options (both correctly configured with “Xms1g”, starting seafile with the option “LimitNOFILE=65536” and adding “vm.max_map_count=262144” to the sysctl.conf file - all to no avail. I have also confirmed that all permissions and file/folder ownership are set correctly. I have tried deleting all nodes under pro-data to no avail (again, this happens even before there are any nodes, at the very first start of seafile after running installation script)

The elasticsearch log file shows:

The strangest thing for me is the fact that I am unable to reproduce this issue at home installing seafile on a proxmox VM but no matter what i do the issue is recurring on the kimsufi servers (KS-3). The issue has been present for well over a year, possibly since seafile 6.x

The only way is to either kill the stuck java process or restart seafile (sometimes several times as restarting seafile can cause the same issue again). Starting seafile from systemctl or using seafile user is exactly the same.

This is driving me crazy and I’m all out of ideas. Any help would be very much appreciated.

did you ever stop/kill all ES processes and check for the existence of the pid-file? If it exists just remove it and start ES again.
When the controller restart all the time this is a common issue.

When I kill all ES processes (I think you mean seafile as I think there is no way to start/stop ES independently of seafile) there isn’t any PID file left in the folder, they are all cleared.

I feel your pain.Same story here …
I set up a dedicated ES instance on the same server, which doesn’t show this behavior. Unfortunately, Seafile is not compatible with recent ES versions, so I’m stuck again.

It’s a pity that noone is looking into this. As said, I had to disable Seafile autostart because of this but the server required a reboot today. So I started Seafile manually afterwards and here’s the result:

This starting behaviour is crazy, I need to be quick here because multiple Java/ES processes will kill the machine in less than 2 minutes.
Before the process w/ pid 2502 is started I executed a “killall java”, which usually helps.

If this is a timing issue (ES not starting up fast enough, so the pid file creation is delayed?) - why cant we configure the controller to check only after 30s or even 1min if a process is down? This could be a config parameter, @daniel.pan ?

We will check the problem.
