MongoDB v3.0.6 CentOS -6.5
- Mongod service goes into unstable state after successive start/stop operation.
- Very easy way to reproduce this issue is start already running service mongod in linux with /etc/init.d/mongod start
- Now, situation will be that if you check with ps -fax then service will be running with PID as below,
26138 ? Sl 0:07 /usr/bin/mongod -f /etc/mongod.conf
And if you check PID in /var/run/mongod
- In this case if you try to restart mongod with /etc/init.d/mongod restart
output will be as follow
Stopping mongod: [ OK ]
Starting mongod: [FAILED]
But in actual mongod service is already running with other PID.
I guess this BUG is in init script of mongo.
As I am new to JIRA, let me know if any other logs or information is required to debug this issue.
