NullPointerException during snapshot


(Alastair James) #1

Hi there.

I recently had a snapshot (ec2 plugin to s3) fail on one shard with a
NullPointerException. Unfortunately I did not keep the exact error message.

However, I tried the snapshot again and it worked fine. So my question is:
Is the snapshot data now in a consistent state? Did the one failed shard
snapshot cause me to loose data or did that shard catch up on next snapshot?

Cheers

Wondering if anyone has any input on this?
