We created a
GeoServer instance within the
Microsoft Azure Cloud on a scalable virtual machine set with an external storage disk mounted to a Linux (Ubuntu 16.04) file system.
- Ubuntu 16.04 (xenial)
- Geoserver 2.12.0
- Tomcat 8.04 with 4GB Memory
- 7GB memory for the system
On this storage we moved the GeoServer data directory to another location, in order to have it available for each of the virtual machines. Right now we have about 120000 layers and each day ~4000 new layers will be create.
We stored raster layers on the storage and all the vector files stored in a
PostgreSQL database which is running on a virtual machine.
In case we need to restart the virtual machine or the
tomcat web server on which
GeoServer is deployed, the web server and
GeoServer are not available anymore and we receive a time out.
Is this error due to the huge amount of data, i.e. because
GeoServer needs to initialize all the layers?
Or could it be because there is an error in the configuration?
Or simply because of a wrong layer?
In all the log files we can not find any error message except this one:
"No Spring WebApplicationInitializer types detected on classpath"
Log file entries or any other system specs can be provided if necessary.
