Summary0000786: Storage daemon crashes at random
DescriptionWe have several Bareos-dir's operating on one Bareos-sd. This Bareos-sd seems to crash (bareos-sd service not running) at some point without prior notice, causing all the scheduled backups to fail!
The Bareos-sd backups to local storage (disks).
SD Version: 16.2.4 (01 July 2016) x86_64-pc-linux-gnu ubuntu Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

We have already tried the storage Daemon on two different machines (one VM and now on dedicated hardware).
Steps To ReproduceThis problem seems hard to reproduce, as it happens only once or twice (in our case) per month.
Additional InformationWe are running the storage daemon with debug level 20 now... This is from the log file at moment the crash occurred:
21-Feb 02:45 filestorage01 JobId 105657: Elapsed time=00:00:36, Transfer rate=22 Bytes/second

I assume, bareos has created some traceback files in /var/lib/bareos/ ?

However, without installed debug packages they are not very useful.
Please install bareos-dbg and attach the traceback file on the next crash.

This issue has not happened anymore.
A similar issue, where the SD also crashes happened more frequently and we (mistakenly) assumed it was the same issue.
The other issue with the crashing SD was solved by ourselves.

We had found in the log files that maximum open files in Linux was not high enough. After increasing the maximum open files in Linux we did not have any more crashes.

Therefore this issue can be closed.
