So, the #leapocalypse seems to be upon us. Its hitting all over the
place, and the problem is mainly coming from Linux ntpd livelock and futex
problems. (some places mentioned Java as the problem, but its really a more
lower level problem).
This seems to help people:
/etc/init.d/ntp stop; date; date
date +"%m%d%H%M%C%y.%S"; date;
And once run, restart elasticsearch. If not, reboot might help.
(Note, even though its great fun to blame Java here and there (god knows I
do it ), its not Java fault this time...)
