Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-2218) gen_server timeout has unhelpful error message
Date Wed, 02 Apr 2014 00:40:16 GMT


Eli Stevens commented on COUCHDB-2218:

This commit was added to address the underlying issue:

Can progress be made when this occurs?  IOW, is it possible for retrying to eventually work
through task and allow the HTTP API call to succeed?

> 4:40 PM rnewson: yeah, do we do a default timeout there for a view build? that's sloppy
> 4:40 PM Wohali: i bet, as it's not an os_process timeout
> 4:41 PM Wohali: which is what i would have expected to see

> 4:42 PM wickedgrey: the machine was in the middle of a test run at the time, which processes
a lot of data under somewhat high load (roughly O(num_cores)), but we do this regularly and
don't usually see this

> update(Mod, State) ->
>    update(nil, Mod, State).
