Indexing PPD's - ARSPDOCI 9.5.0.10 completed code 4
« on: September 10, 2021, 10:54:03 AM »
We are loading a bunch of PDF files, This particular application group comes from iText. Most files load, however- Seeing intermittent failures. Among these intermittent failures, there's tons of successful loads, into other application groups as well, originating from the same 2 load-balanced servers running arsload/pdf indexer.

Code: [Select]
ARS4302I Indexing started, --UNKNOWN-- bytes to process
ARS4901I INDEXSTARTBY=1
ARS4901I RESTYPE=ALL
ARS4901I INDEXMODE=INTERNAL
ARS4901I PARMDD=/opt/app/workload/arsload/pdfFile_arsload.parm
ARS4901I INPUTDD=/opt/app/workload/arsload/pdfFile_arsload
ARS4901I OUTPUTDD=/opt/app/workload/arsload/pdfFile_arsload.out
ARS4901I INDEXDD=/opt/app/workload/arsload/pdfFile_arsload.ind
ARS4901I RESOBJDD=/opt/app/workload/arsload/pdfFile_arsload.res
ARS4922I ARSPDOCI 9.5.0.10 completed code 4

Here's an example of the loads/failures

I can't find anything on this error, but my sneaking suspicion is that this script that runs arsload, is running- before the file is finished generating, or something.

Either that, or something is up with these boxes- http://www.odusergroup.org/forums/index.php/topic,3186.0.html

...originating from the same 2 load-balanced servers running arsload/pdf indexer.

Is it possible to run just one arsload server to see if that makes a difference?

Yup, sounds like a classic race condition.  Try running with one first.

Also, consider creating a 'wrapper' script for arsload, something that checks to see that the PDF file is 5 minutes old before kicking off the process.  Also, if both processes are pulling from the same directory, you'll need to figure out a way to 'lock' a specific file, so the other process doesn't start loading it while the other one is working on it.
