Author instance restarting problems

Avatar

Not applicable

Hi,

One of my colleague tried installing a package on Shared Author environment (Size was approx 400Mb). The upload was not successful and server went quite funny so we decided to restart the server. However, after that the server isn't starting. We are working on 5.6.1. When i hit the url servername:4502 i get not found but /system/console is coming up fine. Although a lot of dependencies aren't active and most of the options are mission from main tab and status tab.

Also, are they any best practices which should be followed for installing packages of size more than 500 Mb or something because we have to regularly do that.

Error.log attached.

There are couple of things. First what is the content inside package & why you want upload regularly.  Is it product importer?

1)   Make sure temp folder has sufficient space atleast 3 times the size of package & replication happening at given point of time.

2)   If you have dam assets inside package or any workflow runs based on its content. Make sure to offload it. 

3)   Have regular maintance activity of server like purging, optimization & deletion of packages that is no longer required.

Pls try to rename the index folder from below location and try to restast again- 

$crx-quickstart\repository\repository

$\crx-quickstart\repository\workspaces\crx.default

Thanks for the recommendations.

The reason why we have to import the content regularly is because we are just done with finalizing our migration approach and there are bugs with whatever has been done and if people change the code and run migration again it creates packages with size swelling upto 700Mb sometimes.

I would appreciate if you can let me know the procedure to update large content packages. Is there any other way to upload package apart from Package Share and Webdav? plus nice and efficient.

Hi Kumar lal

The way it works with large package currently is copy the package in the /tmp then copy to datastore, and use more tmp copies of the initial resulting in copying 3 or 4 times the package before actually starting to extract its content. Hence maintenance adds up.  On the other side 700Mb should be fine just make sure to take care of my earlier recommendations.  Package manager service is the option.

Anyhow For migration I would recommend personally is to extract the package on your local filesystem, then use the vlt import hence creating the content in the repository directly.

Thanks,
Sham

Hi Kumar,

  Not sure on what migration approach you are following but ideally try to break the packages if possible, else you can still upload bigger packages but make sure you have sufficient disk space available.
