[Netarchivesuite-users] Netarchive taking up all resources on server

Could you have your remote connection to the VM open when you try to start to  enable you to see the logfiles from all the applications on the machine. It's hard to say what exactly goes wrong without more information.
Maybe you could have a "top" command running in a seperate window when starting to see more exactly what application is using all CPU.

How much RAM does your VM have ? the quick start installation would like to have as much RAM as possible.

Hi all

I am running a stand alone netarchive installation set up as per the netarchive 3.12 quick install manual on a virtual machine running CentOS linux.
Netarchive is the only service running on this (reasonably high spec) VM.

When we start netarchive running, it runs for about 2 hours and then takes up ALL the resource (cpu, ram etc) that the VM has.  It gets to the point where we can’t even VNC into it, and trying to go to the harvest definition url contacts the server and just waits indefinitely.  Is there any way we can stop netarchive from taking over, and effectively crashing, our VM?

Kind regards
