Couchbase server Scale opinions after crash


#1

Hello and happy new year!
We have a system with 1 node with total quota (4.49 GB) unallocated 950MB with 6 buckets.
Two of them have about 60 writes/min and the he other ones collecting data every hour.
On our server we run some agents to collect the status of the data (counts lasts updates) which might have 100 or more queries every one hour.

Bucket sizes are 4m and 2m for the heavy load buckets and 2k for the others.

The server crashed and restarted several time during this week with the following messages.

  1. Control connection to memcached on ‘ns_1@127.0.0.1’ disconnected: {badmatch,
    {error,
    timeout}} (repeated 6 times)

  2. Service ‘query’ exited with status 137. Restarting. Messages:

We are about to move the server into a better Hardware but for sure we will need some advice about how to avoid such issues in the future.
