The crash rate has increased thus resulting to sentinel and api containers to restart which interrupts the entire app.

Hi @Job_Isabai

I’ve never seen this error before. Can you share which version of the CHT you’re running?

I am running on CHT 4.5.0. This error is present on Production Environment.

Did this start happening suddenly or can you correlate it with some event?

Yes it might be related with the upgrade from 4.2.0 to 4.5.0

“Might be” is too loose. When did you upgrade to 4.5.0?

I upgraded on June 6th. The reason why I attribute this to the upgrade to 4.5.0, prior to the upgrade, couch_db, sentinel, api containers were stable and barely restarted due to error.

When did you first see this error happen?

4 Hours after upgrade and indexing is completed.

Have you added additional ddocs to your installation or made any changes to the views?

I only creased a new view on the database afterwards.
Might this related to this issue: getting badarg in rexi_server (fabric_rpc) · Issue #1163 · apache/couchdb · GitHub

This is a closed issue with no information.
Can you share the view you added?

function(doc) {
  if (doc.type === 'data_record' && 
      (doc.form === 'ped_label_form_pause' || 
       doc.form === 'yi_label_form_pause')) {
    emit(doc.form, doc);
  }
}

Reduce = None

did you create a new ddoc for this view?

Hello Diana,
I deleted the view but the error is still there.
The errors and restarts of couchdb are not that of a blocker to access and use of the application but rather they prevent me from refreshing data on Power BI. I have connected Power BI to CHT which pulls data via the API for exporting reports. Due to the increased number of records and unplanned couchdb restart/failure, it has been challenging for me to refresh data. Please advise on the alternative for Power BI connection, can I set up Couc2pg? or would replication be an option?
Thanks,
Job
