FreeBSD 12.1 x64 zfs

Fresh install from pkg as well as compiled from ports results in the same issue... Upon starting the service, it immediately crashes. This happens whether or not an admin account is created and default interface and port are specified (as is required by CouchDB 3)

The Erlang crash dump is attached... let me know if more info is needed.
Comment 1 Dave Cottlehuber freebsd_committer 2020-07-19 21:03:18 UTC
thanks for the report. Some more detail is needed, I can't reproduce it
here yet.

Does this actually affect many people? So far there is 1 bug report. I'm
running it here on a variety of installs, albeit none from pkg.freebsd.org.

This looks a bit like it bombs out in the scheduler, on a physical (virtual?)
2 core system, very very early on. How were these packages installed, are you
certain that both erlang-runtime22 & couchdb3 are *both* updated from latest
pkg repo?

if you start a plain erlang, does that blow up too?

export PATH=/usr/local/lib/erlang22/bin:$PATH
erl -init_debug -s crypto -eval 'io:format("~w~n",[crypto:strong_rand_bytes(16)]).'

if you run plain erlang, with the same parameters from your vm.args, does
that start or not? include the -init_debug call from above.

if you're using public packages, does this bomb out on a fresh install too?

i.e. a single node install, with no existing config nor db?

if you add `-init_debug` to your vm.args, do we see anything more useful
on startup & crash?

can you attach output `pkg info`, uname -a, your local.ini (without the
admin section and any secrets like [couch_httpd_auth])

couchdb3-3.1.0_1               JSON document database with HTTP API and scalable multi-master sync
erlang-runtime22-      Functional programming language from Ericsson
icu-67.1,1                     International Components for Unicode (from IBM)
oniguruma-6.9.5.r1_1           Regular expressions library compatible with POSIX/GNU/Perl
pcre-8.44                      Perl Compatible Regular Expressions library
pcre2-10.35                    Perl Compatible Regular Expressions library, version 2
spidermonkey60-60.9.0_4        Standalone JavaScript based from Mozilla 60-esr

FWIW running this in a vanilla 12.1p5 amd64 jail, following instructions in
`pkg info -D couchdb3` produces:

# tee -a /usr/local/etc/couchdb3/local.ini << DEFAULTS

Is there anything unusual about this box?

Plain Erlang does not blow up.. output below

Interestingly, the above fails when my vm.args is passed in (also tried passing in vm.args.example from the package)

Failure #1 (/usr/local/lib/erlang22/bin/erl -init_debug -s crypto -eval 'io:format("~w~n",[crypto:strong_rand_bytes(16)]).' -args_file /usr/local/etc/couchdb3/vm.args) - Attached as erl_crash.dump2

Failure #2 (/usr/local/lib/erlang22/bin/erl -init_debug -args_file /usr/local/etc/couchdb3/vm.args) - Attached as erl_crash.dump3

I tried with my local.ini (attached) as well as the short example you provided, same result to both (attached as erl_crash.dump)

I am attaching pkg info, uname, etc.

This is on a fresh install from Digital Ocean btw. Let me know if you need more info.
Comment 9 Dave Cottlehuber freebsd_committer 2020-07-20 12:37:18 UTC
I spun up a 4 GB Memory / 80 GB Disk / AMS3 - FreeBSD 12.1 x64 zfs in
DO (2 cpu like your setup) and followed my notes above and can't
replicate the issue, even using your local.ini

Slogan: init terminating in do_boot ({function_clause,[{init,b2a,[[_]],[]},{init,do_boot,3,[]}]})

b2a is binary_to_atom IIRC.

So I'm guessing your vm.args has a typo. can you re-try it, using

$ head /dev/random |sha512 | cut -c 1-32

to generate a node name and a cookie?

please post the resulting vm.args and whether that works.

This one looks similar, but maybe there's already one running?

Comment 10 Dave Cottlehuber freebsd_committer 2020-07-26 09:40:34 UTC
Erlang stack traces imply a local config file error or typo.
per previous comments, vm.args and any settings (specific DO
config for example) are needed to reproduce this.

I can't replicate this on a vanilla DO box with FreeBSD 12.1R
amd64p7 + couchdb3 from packages, Unless precise reproducible
steps are provided, or I get a bug report from elsewhere in
the community, I'll close this in a week or so.
Comment 11 Dave Cottlehuber freebsd_committer 2020-08-01 15:38:42 UTC
Mike, please re-open this if you can share enough info to reproduce it.
