CFServer Crashing

my cfserver logs does not get archive automatically after 5MB, even i try to stop them, they do not get stopped, i can only delete them,

but when i try to open a log file, it says file is too large to display

my server crashes sometimes, is the logs being created and having big size does the server to crash,

i need to know what causes my jrun server to crash and when i restart the server, it backs up,

it shows sometimes 504, 503, jrun errors on the screen

please guide

Get yourself a copy of Huge File Editor so you can open those logs:
That will shed a lot more light on the problem!
What is the O/S on the server and what version of ColdFusion?
Gurpreet Singh RandhawaCEOAuthor Commented:
centos and coldfusion 9
lsof +L0
shows files open and deleted

To see huge text logs of CF9:
You can see any 5MB file with "less"
"tail -24" will show last screen of log right away

CentOS5 or 6? Java 1.5 1.6 1.7 openjdk/sun/ibm/jrockit ?

centos 5 is there and jdk is te one which comes with coldfusion 9
Do you have SELinux on? (getenforce ?)
Does it log violations? (audit2allow -a)

I am not sure what you are talking about, my Centos Knowledge is limited so could not understand it,

Another Attempt to the server, if you can help:

server Coldfusion 9.0.1.

504 Gateway Error. Some times No server is configured. Some times it says, Internal server error.

So checked the websites logs and found this message to be annoying

-bash-3.2$ tail server.log.3
tail: cannot open `server.log.3' for reading: No such file or directory
-bash-3.2$ tail /opt/coldfusion9/logs/server.log.3

It was never seen before, but now this has started appearing, is this could be the cause of the coldfusion being stopped automatically or something other

we are running CENTOS 5 [no gui], mysql 5 version and i even imcreased the mysql max connections .limit to 500.

Apache webserver.

If you can guide me a but that will be great, we had set the JVm as Minimum to 128 and maximum to 1024

What is that "this" that is appearing?
Can you confirm that getenforce says 0?
If not we have to troubleshoot SELinux before heading to java
Gurpreet Singh RandhawaCEOAuthor Commented:
we are debugging coldfusion server issues which is deployed on linux
So what you get when you type "getenforce" in command line? Or should i use pliers to get any system infromation from you?

Also what is your kernel version (oslevel -r) ?

Do you see crash note in logs? in output of dmesg?
Gurpreet Singh RandhawaCEOAuthor Commented:
here when i login to putty and use the command:

-bash-3.2$ getenforce
-bash: getenforce: command not found
P1: you have selinux still in enforcing mode and all management tools uninstalled
P2: your java is EOL (ask vendor for patch - or tweak to use supported system java)
P3: you might be participating in piracy

S1: try to add boot parameters enforce=0 and/or selinux=0
S2: ask vendor for supported java version
S3: the discussion ends right here. Sorry. go figure yourself on how to double Xmx java argument on pirated coldfusion
