I’m having an issue with very high CPU usage for a Couchbase Linux server (reporting as ~650% for memcached on a machine with 8 cores). The CPU usage went way up just in the last few hours, which I don’ t think it’s ever done before. We have 2 couchbase servers, and normally they both sit at very low CPU usage (around 10%), and have been going on happily for the last 2.5 years or so. The problem is that I know almost nothing about Couchbase or Linux, and the person who set this up has left the company, so it’s very hard for me to diagnose.
A summary of the most recent log entries is…
21:26 June 30th 2015, mb_master000 firstname.lastname@example.org Haven’t heard from a higher priority node or a master, so I’m taking over.
21:21 June 30th 2015, menelaus_web102 email@example.com Client-side error-report for user undefined on node ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’
04:42 Nov 3rd 2014, mb_master000 email@example.com Haven’t heard from a higher priority node or a master, so I’m taking over.
Notice that last 2 entires happened very recently, and the entry before that was last year. The server with the high CPU is 172.24.126.133.
See the image below for the resources on 172.24.126.133. Please let me know what else would be useful to include.
Any help is much appreciated.
