[Mayday mayday] Apache NiFi Unable to create Provenance Repository

Contributor

I keep getting below error post a NiFi crash with this error [NiFi logging handler] org.apache.nifi.StdErr OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM warning: INFO: os::commit_memory(0x00007f58338b0000, 65536, 1) failed; error='Cannot allocate memory' (errno=12)

and any attempt to restart NiFi is failing (reduce the Xms & Xmx, changed nifi.flowcontroller.autoResumeState=false, disk space is looking OK etc). Please help at the earliest -

Thank you @Bryan Bende for such a quick response, truly appreciate it.

However this is on production and restarting NiFi is priority, even if it means losing provenance data. Please advice? Thank you.

Re: [Mayday mayday] Apache NiFi Unable to create Provenance Repository

You should be able to delete all the files underneath "provenance_repository/journals/" and I think it will come back up correctly and you will only lose a couple of minutes or less of provenance data.

Of course if that doesn't work you can completely delete provenance_repository all together and restart with a clean provenance repo.
