So I’m restoring from backups here as I can’t really wait around to figure out what’s going on here, but…
I have a dev site where I’ve been building a whole lot of stuff on it to eventually move to prod kind of deal.
I wouldn’t necessarily say it’s a huge website really or huge set of express entries, but I was trying to search in the Dashboard section for Express Entries for an object with I think like 20-30ish entries. And it wasn’t quite turning up results. I don’t have any automated jobs running, so I figured I’d go run the “Index Search Engine - All” task as maybe that could help.
Now when I go to view Entries for this object it failed, saying php didn’t have enough memory allowed. I increased memory_limit more and more, same thing, eventually set it to “-1” since this is dev.
Now, it uses all 2GB of RAM and 1GB of swap on the system and eventually falls on its face. And I can’t see a way to “undo” what I’ve done. So I restored from backup (yay for backups!).
The thing is I’m concerned about seeing this behaviour exhibiting in prod someday, where I do have the jobs running regularly, and I honestly don’t know what I can do in this scenario.
My google-fu has not turned up anything. Does anyone have any idea what this is all about?
