Why are searches stuck at "finalizing job" after upgrade to 6.5.0?

I upgraded Splunk on my linux server to 6.5.0 and after that no searches are getting completed. Not even index=_internal

Search job inspector also doesn't load.

All the jobs are getting stuck at 'finalizing job'. Tried bouncing Splunk web services as I was occasionally getting error as "Connection to Splunk server lost."

Any solution please??

search is always "parsing...." after upgrading to 6.5 from 6.3.2 - SPL-129476

This is actually caused by stale files remaining in cache after the upgrade. If you haven't all ready done so, try clearing browser cache and retry the search. This has helped quite a few customers reporting this issue.

Using Debian Jessie 64bit.
Also tested on Windows 10 64bit. No problems here.

I did a few things that includes:

  • Restarting of Splunkweb services as I was also getting an error 'Connection to Splunk server lost'
  • Clearing dispatch directory

Cleared everything fro dispatch directory.

And after a while everything started working. I am not sure if that was the issue.

Restarting did not work for me either. I was not getting disconnect errors though.
