Zimbra stopped working

Postby jakebriems » Mon Apr 10, 2006 12:30 pm

Zimbra has been running well for a week now. Yesterday morning I get a call saying that one of our users can't access their email (in outlook.) i try to access the 7071 zimbra admin, but that page doesn't come up. additionally the webmail doesn't work either. I ssh in and "service zimbra restart"
the only thing I noticed was that on the service shutdown, the smtp part failed to shutdown (probably because it had already abnormally shutdown.)
Everything came up fine and is working well again.
How do I track down the root cause of this problem? Which logs would provide me with clues as to what went wrong?
ideas?

A good place to start is /var/log/zimbra.log and another good one for ya would be /opt/zimbra/tomcat/logs/catalina.out

Zimbra stopped working

Postby bobby » Mon Apr 10, 2006 1:37 pm

it's always good before restarting zimbra to first check "su - zimbra; zmcontrol status" to find out if something isn't running. if you can't log in anywhere, the answer is likely tomcat ;)
i think catalina.out gets zeroed out each time tomcat starts, though as long as tomcat hasn't completely died, the current thread dump gets saved as "stacktrace."

so in /var/log/zimbra.log I see the following (I cut out parts that seemed to not be related)

Where [MAILSERVER] is the hostname of the zimbra machine and [DOMAIN] is our domain (e.g. example.com)
You'll notice that mailbox: Stopped happened at Apr 9th.
Any idea what went wrong?

You can see that lmtp can't connect so tomcat is stopped. Anything in /opt/zimbra/log/zimbra.log around the same time?

Hard to pin point the cause here. How much memory do you have? What's the user activity like? Number users? POP? IMAP? Web UI?

2GB of RAM, 40 or so users. all secure pop3 with some using the web UI as well. Strangely though, the problem occured at 10am sunday morning with practically nobody using the system.
Is there a file where I can go to set my Java heap memory variable to a larger value?

You can up the % in zmlocalconfig, with 2GB you should already have plenty for a userbase that small.
