PMS Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Suddenly loses connection but regains it back after a while / Or not.

Dear All,
I hope you are doing great.

As the title says, PMS is running 14.04 ubuntu, and sometimes the server stops responding.
The logs shows this error:
ERROR - NAT: PMP::getPublicIP, couldn't initialize: -3:Unable to get Gateway

I haven't found an answer on previous post in this forum.

Best regards

    "Unable to get gateway" is PMS telling you it can't get it's public (WAN) ethernet address. This is a direct indication of a networking failure between PMS and the gateway (modem / router).

    Do you have the actual log files ( Settings - Server - Help - Download Logs) which show this? The logs will provide the additional information I need to help you diagnose exactly what's happening.

    Dear @ChuckPA ,

    Thanks for investigating :)

    here is the log. It is a VPS.

    Best regards.

    Thanks for the logs.

    What you're seeing is PMS reporting it's unable to initiate UPnP / NAT-PMP port mapping. This error shows only that automatic port mapping isn't available because their equipment doesn't permit it.

    If you scroll down further, you'll see where PMS does get its public IP address successfully.

    The ZIP file is missing Plex Media Server.1.log . I cannot find any loss of connectivity in the other log files. I do see the server streaming consistently throughout.

    The next time PMS does disconnect, would you please try to capture another set of log files as quickly as possible? If there was a hard disconnect, it might have scrolled off or is in that missing log file.

    Dear @ChuckPA
    Thanks for responding.

    Remote access is forwarded MANUALLY through port 32400, I have even dropped iptables for a week now to make sure it is not interfering. Should I try to manually re-forward it to another port?

    Best regards.

  • ChuckPAChuckPA Posts: 18,334Members, Plex Pass, Plex Ninja, Plex Team Member Plex Team Member

    I would try it. Sometimes VPS providers are sensitive but most aren't.

    Also, a restart of the whole VPS (Reboot) wouldn't hurt (if you can do that)

    Do you really think rebooting the whole thing would help? Ubuntu 14.04 LTS has been as stable as a ROCK for all my other app without rebooting :)

    Thank you for responding fast.

    Check your netstat and lsof output. If nothing is open after you shut down PMS, then NO, it's not. That said, I've seen stranger things with Linux and 14.04 is a little long in the tooth as far as distros go given how fast they roll them now.

    Dear @ChuckPA ,
    How are you,

    I ran into that EXACT same issue.

    Here is the log.

    Best regards.

  • cineboxitcineboxit Posts: 49Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    @ChuckPA ,

    As soon as I "kill -9 PMSPID", everything went back to normale. This is very weird.

    Best regards.

    @cineboxit

    I ask you turn off Verbose logging until such time we need it. I got through the logs you provided but would have benefited more from having more data to look at (which Verbose limits due to log file max size).

    I am seeing the transcoder consistently timing out trying to read a particular block of data.
    ``
    Sep 05, 2017 23:38:19.147 [0x760ff9ba7700] DEBUG - Removed transcode output stream 0x760fea243000, active count 59 => 58
    Sep 05, 2017 23:38:19.696 [0x760fb2607700] ERROR - Throttle: timed out trying to read chunk 49
    Sep 05, 2017 23:38:19.878 [0x760fb50e5700] DEBUG - [TranscodeOutputStream] Input processing thread exited after writing 5032 bytes, m_closed=1, m_endOfFileReached=0, session->isStopped()=0
    ```

    My first thought is, if the media is on a single local hard disk, you're about to have a drive failure. Normal desktop drives will sit and retry to read the data causing PMS to generate a timeout rather than a hard error (which is what a NAS rated drive does)

    It is possible that when you terminated processing, everything could come back to life because the I/O processing in the kernel could return to normal.

    Does this match your local configuration / observations in any way?

    @ChuckPA ,

    Media is on Local and NFS shares.

    Best Regards

    This time PMS didnt get back by itself, I have to kill PID.

    Best regards.

  • ChuckPAChuckPA Posts: 18,334Members, Plex Pass, Plex Ninja, Plex Team Member Plex Team Member

    Please explain to me. Is this the same problem as the VPS problem?

    It looks like you're running a RasPlex box.

    If it is Rasplex (meaning a Pi), it's having a heck of a time trying to transcode something. Presumably just the audio transcoding?

    If this is local, either a) insufficient CPU or b) as I suggested above with the I/O waiting and inability to read something.

    Dear @ChuckPA
    Thank you for your response.

    Yes it is the same as the VPS problem. I also use a raspberry pi running rasplex but I haven't used it in a while thus I don't think it is the problem.

    For the info, CPU is "Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1245 v5 @ 3.50GHz". and I never had to transcode more than 4 streams at the same (plus they are low bitrate, 1500-2500)

    Could it be that one of my NFS shares lost connectivity?

    I was running PMS 1.5.5, and i upgraded today to 1.8.1, could it be that I was witnessing a transcoder crash/deadlock related to a previous problem?

    Best regards.

    Dear @ChuckPA
    I hope you are doing great :smile:

    I had the same problems happening again where PMS loses connectivity. I have attached 2 separate logs.

    According to your logs, yes you are losing connectivity and it does look like the transcoder can't read.

    Is your transcode temp on a NFS share? If so, there is an extra step you must perform in the mounts. local_lock=posix.

    Hello @ChuckPA
    Thank you very much for helping.

    PMS is on dedi and transcode temp is NOT in NFS. However I have other NFS mounts.

    Best regards.

    Here is how I do it. Yes, this is overkill but it gets the job done quite nicely.

    # movies
    vienna:/movies    /vie/movies     nfs sec=sys,rsize=131072,wsize=131072,intr,rw,vers=4,timeo=15,auto,async,nofail,bg 0 0
    #

    I would.

    The options I've specified allow for TCP (not UDP), version 4 of NFS, Hard and interruptable mounts, and, most importantly, won't fail during system boot if unavailable but will put it in the background to mount as soon as possible.

    Granted, this doesn't help if the server side goes away but it does make the local kernel 'kick it' harder when it has issues because it will retry more
