Service 'indexer' exited with status 1


#1

All of a sudden the indexer has started crashing. Attempting to run N1ql queries are now failing despite restarting couchbase, and despite restarting the server. If I remember correctly I was testing some update statements just prior to this.

I had build an older build of 4.5, and then upgraded to build 4.5-2601, but the issue persists.

I noticed MB-19386 but I’m not sure if that has been released yet.

#2

I was able to get around this by recreating my primary index.


#3

Can someone from Couchbase comment on this please?


#4

Could you send the indexer.log to us. it would be good to see what was going on ahead of this.

The issue under MB-19386 has been fixed in 4.5 and was related to full-text indexes not GSI’s use of ForestDB.

Search for “read error” in the file and you’ll find the error.
