A couple of days ago, the server crashes without warning. It happens 2 -3 times a day; the user can't connect to the server. When they try, the client freezes before the file list is displayed.
The only way to fix this is to restart the 6 Qlikview services.
Before we had the 8.5 version (on a different machine, so it isn't a compatibility issue) and i had the same problem, but i was hopping that with a new server version and a more powerful machine i'll get rid of this problem. Sadly, that is not the case.
I searched on the server for clues in the logs and i found this line around the time the error occured:
2010-02-10 10:38:52 Error Server aborted trying to recover by restart. Reason for restart: Internal inconsistency, type D, detected. 2010-02-10 10:38:52 Error Server aborted trying to recover by restart. Reason for restart: Internal inconsistency, type E, detected.
Try pin pointing which report and object that is causing the problem. Check logs for reports opened at the time or ask users what they were trying to do. See if you can reproduce restarting of the server and what might be the reason.
Had similar problems a while ago with internal inconsitency when dynamicly changing text format in a table. Sent it to support and it was a bug which was corrected in next SR.
The "Internal inconsistency" error is not a static error that points to a specific problem - it is a safety mechanism and more of a pointer to where something happened. It might be a result of another error, for eg. memory exhaustion, but all these errors are usually treated as bugs and should be treated as such, and preferably debugged.
Report the issue to Qliktech Support, and try and attach qvs log files and the qvw file, if the error can be traced to one.
I would say that number 3 on that action list is the most probable cause for the issue go go away, either by a fix to one of the Internal Inconsistency errors in SR3 or by the difference in behavior on a x64 platform.
