If Orient Me suddenly stops working

In one of my environment Orient Me suddenly stopped working and even a reboot of your Linux machine did not help. My colleague Matt Milza pointed me in the right direction to solve this issue: Check your systems disk space with df . You may be seeing that your has run out of space:

Unfortunately there is a bug in the first release of Orient Me that will continue writing logs into

/var/lib/elasticsearch/data/elasticsearch-default/nodes/0/indices

until all space is used:

The solution is simple: Delete all content in this folder ( rm -rf * ) and restart your machine. Then Orient Me should be happily working for you again. A fix is being built.

Update: As Ben Williams pointed out, Christoph Stoettner has documented how permanently fix this issue here.
