I am in a rather peculiar position where my syncgateway keeps timing out at launch each time i have more than one data node (works perfectly when other nodes are not data nodes). I first reported about it here a few days ago but barely understood what was happening so my question wasn’t very clear either. The error message is:
and adjusting the view_query_timeout_secs value to 5 minutes (from default 75 seconds) doesn’t help.
I’ve tried to simply resync the gateway after the rebalance (ensuring it is offline before the nodes are added) but the resync always goes on through the night and past the maintenance window yet it usually takes 10 minutes max. I’ve followed this thread about multi-node clusters and gateways. I still have this trouble whether all data nodes or one data node is listed in the config file.
Besides adding the extra IP addresses to the config file, are there any other fields to adjust to get the gateway responding smoothy to multiple data nodes? Am using Couchbase 6.0.3 and Gateway 2.6. This error is always cleared when i remove the added data nodes. Any insight would be highly appreciated.
Here are my gateway settings, besides the logging and sync functions:
