Last night around 2345 a splunk-optimize process seems to have kicked off, and my server has essentially been unresponsive all day since. I will get remote hands on the box tomorrow at the soonest (grr, holiday weekends) but in the mean time I'm wondering if anyone else has seen this type of behaviour.
I have one working shell on the box at the moment, any further attempts to connect are met with failure, and other sessions hung after a few commands, so I'm extremely hesitant to do much till I can get to the console.
root 64784 100.0 0.2 2595160 78012 ?? Rs 11:44PM 809:35.51 splunk-optimize -d /Volumes/foo/Applications/splunk/var/lib/splunk/zz/db/hot_v1_104
That %CPU varies, so whatever this process is seems to actually still be going. I tried (perhaps foolishly) to kill -9 it, but it made no difference.
I realise this is a longshot, but, just wondering if others have had issues with this process on particularly large indices.
For what it's worth, the OS is OS X 10.6.7.
