I'm having trouble configuring a Sitecore 7.2 production environment and noticed some weird things on the CM environment..
After a few updates to the
sitecore_master_index the jobs to update the index get stuck in the job queue and never get progressed and subsequently a ton of jobs get queued up (I'm using the Job Viewer to examine the Queue). I can't find anything in the Crawling log and no exceptions in the normal log. When I try to rebuild the index I get a "queued" message.
The slightly unusual thing is (I know it's not recommended practice to expose master content from the cd server unless necessary), that I have syncmaster strategy configured for a separate index rather than just the
sitecore_master_index but can't see how this would cause jobs to back up.
I know I haven't provided a huge amount of detail, but does anyone know of any reason of why this would happen or if there is a way to make sure these jobs die after a certain amount of time?
