Erl.exe causing restarts


We are noticing that couchbase server (on windows) is using increasing amounts of CPU before crashing and restarting.
The process that seems to be most problematic is erl.exe.
We could throw more servers at the problem but would like to know if we are just hiding a fundamental problem which will come back.

We are wondering if we should consolidate the number of views but would like an idea if that is the right direction to go before spending too much time on it.


There are some known ticket w.r.t. windows and tons of views. Particularly because we’re using older erlang release that cannot take advantage of 64-bit address space. And when number of views is big enough it’ll just crash unable to allocate memory.

Of course without much details I cannot be sure if your problem is same or not.
