Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-13663) Cassandra 3.10 crashes without dump
Date Fri, 03 Nov 2017 19:05:00 GMT


Ricardo Bartolome commented on CASSANDRA-13663:

UPDATE: in our case (not the case or the author of the ticket) the JVM was crashing. We realised
this by enabling Oracle JVM ErrorFile and kernel core dumps.

It happens with OracleJDK 1.8.0_112 and 1.8.0_131. With kernel 4.9.43-17.38.amzn1.x86_64 and

We'll try to share the crash log, but since we are not familiar with its contents, we are
checking it does not contain any sensible information

> Hello. My company runs a 5 node Cassandra cluster. For the last few weeks, we have had
a sporadic issue where one of the servers crashes without creating a dump file and without
any error messages in the logs. If one restarts the service (which we have by now scripted
to happen automatically), the servers resumes work with no complaint.
> Log files of the time of the last crash are attached, thou again they do not log any
crash happening.
> Regarding out setup, we are running these servers on AMazon AWS, with 3 volumes per server,
one for the system, one for data and one for the commitlog. When a crash happens, we can observe
a sudden spike of read activity on the commitlog volume. All of these have ample free space.
Aspecially the system volume has more then enough free space so that a dump could be written.
> The servers are Ubuntu 16.04 servers and Cassandra is installed from the apt-get packet
for version 3.10.
> It is worth noting that these crashes happen more often when nodetool is running either
repair job or a backup job, but this is by no means always the case. As for frequency, we
have had about 1-2 crashes per week for the last month.
