Question:

The AIS server logs for a workspace show the following messages:

trace ---> sig_term: Stoping the server - a termination signal intercepted
info ===> nvrpc_svc_run: Service loop stopped
and the AIS servers terminate. What is causing this?

Answer:

The problem is caused by wrong workspace configuration which had:
  • minNAvailableServers='5'
  • nAvailableServers='1'
The minNAvailableServer cannot be larger than nAvailableServer (if it is non zero). Of the 5 servers that are pre-started, the last 4 will be retired on the spot (which is done by the daemon using a termination signal)
