    delayed write failure for file '_SearchDB_'

    Hi all,

    We're having a number of occurances of our team members seeing the following error:

    delayed write failure for file '_SearchDB_' 

    Our NEXIS is running 18.6.1.14 and all our clients are also up to date. All are Mac users running High Sierra with Media Composer 2018.5.

    Running a path diag from every machine is showing averages over 100mb/s. 

    We can temporarily alleviate the issue by deleting the bay folders on the NEXIS, but it does return.

    It is affecting two teams who are working off different workspaces from each other. I can't see any issues in the NEXIS logs itself. In the past when I've see the delayed write failure issue, our older ISIS would show a network degraded warning (usually due to a bad connection), but the NEXIS has no log notes that I can see around the affected teims. This started last night and has been plaguing us all day today.

    Any suggestions would be helpful!

    Thanks

    Extremely large projects are susceptible to the SearchDB being corrupted.

    Try reducing the number of bins per project.

    MC 8.6.1, Windows 10, ASROCK X99M, Intel 5930K, Zotac GTX970, 32GB RAM, Transcend 512GB M.2 SSD & Dell U2713H. MBP 2012 Thunderbolt, OSX 10.10.5, MC... [view my complete system specs]

    We'll take a look at that, however, these projects aren't any larger then anything we've been dealing with in the past. Each episode is isolated in it's own project too.

    Try setting the Search DB to the local. We had the same issue and that fixed it.

    Thanks I'll give it a shot. This needs to be done manually for each user and each project they open correct? It's not a user setting that will move project to project?

    I think you have to do it for every project.
