SpectroSERVER crashing after around 20 minutes. Both primary and secondary.

The crash started yesterday (02/24/2021) at around 04:40 PM BRT when there was a power outage on the devices. Spectrum machines were not affected by this power outage as they are in a datacenter.

If the SSdb from 02/23/2021 is restored, the SS crashes after around 20 minutes

If the SSdb from last month is restored, the SS crashes after a few hours.

Release : 20.2

Component : Spectrum Core / SpectroSERVER


Open a support case and request the Spectrum_10.04.02.D134.Linux.txe debug patch.

See the ReleaseNote.D134.txt file.

Here are the steps:

1. Shutdown the SpectroSERVER and processd (Spectrum Process Daemon)

2. Restore the $SPECROOT/SS/Modules/ file, that was moved to a temporary directory.

3. Apply Spectrum_10.04.02.D134.Linux.txe patch by running it.

As best practices copy the Spectrum_10.04.02.D134.Linux.txe and ReleaseNote.D134.txt files to the following directory structure to preserve the original files in case you want to uninstall the patch:


          -For Linux:

            - Save "Spectrum_10.04.02.D134.Linux.txe" in a directory
              of your choice.

            - Type: "chmod 755 Spectrum_10.04.02.D134.Linux.txe" to
              change the permissions of the file.

            - "./Spectrum_10.04.02.D134.Linux.txe"


4. Start the processd and then start the SpectroSERVER.
