PMS crashing every night

Hi guys,

my PMS has started crashing the last couple of weeks on a daily basis although i haven't changed anything drastically on my setup or library.

PMS is installed on a MAC mini, all assets are loaded from a Synology NAS and the only thing changed was that i updated Mac Mini OS to Sierra.

Attached is the crash report from Apple and the PMS logs.
I would welcome any suggestion.

    Same symptom for me. My difference is Drobo DAS.

    Are you running DVR?

    I am not running any DVR...
    The weird thing is that it started happening out of nowhere.

    Yes, my Plex Server 1.5.6.3790 on a Mac Mini has been remarkably stable for several months until the last few days and since then it has started crashing. I only upgraded to Sierra about 2 weeks ago and that was under duress.

    I have deleted the DVR in case its that. I did a system check and all drives are good.

    When was the last update?? Maybe the latest release is the problem

    I hate it when my server goes down - my family bitch at me as if its an entitlement. That is because Plex is really really good.....

    Help!

    :)

    When the issue is happening the Plex Media Server is utilizing 100% CPU
    I am reattaching the error in case someone can have a look.

    I have installed the new version and will report whether this fixes the problem.

    The latest version is actually
    PMS Version 1.5.5.3634

    That is if you have Plex Pass.
    Not sure what non pass users are running.

    I thought 1.6 was still in pre-release... NO?

    LOL
    Just as I speak.. Plex Pass Just downloaded 1.6

    This problem normally comes from thumbnails enabled in PMS/Library
