I'm converting my my standalone mongodb into a replica set. I've added one more member (and I want to add two more members later, and to shutdown the primary server).

My primary mongodb is running 2.2.3, and the new replica member running the latest ver of mongodb, 2.6.4.

Both of the db's running on Ubuntu server 14.04, At microsoft Azure and They are running in the same Affinity Group. (Vm size is A2)

I've edited the ulimit of "nofile" and "nproc" to 65535, After seeing the MMMS-monitoring advice, BUt only on the secondaries, to avoid the reboot time of the machines, Is it necessary?

I got somewhere above 80m document on the primary database and it is running on live production. is it beacuse of this?

After few hours of syncing data, the TTL showed the following errors, and started to sync all over again. and it's keeps looping.

It's hard to say for sure based on such limited information, but that looks like something is killing the connection between the secondary and the primary while it is trying to sync. If it is happening repeatedly at approximately the same time, then it suggests that something in your network is enforcing a max connection time. If it is happening randomly it suggests that there is something flakey on the network itself (impossible to tell what that might be without significant troubleshooting).

It's also obvious from the snippet of logs that the secondary is under heavy load when this happens since it is taking multiple hours to run ServerStatus (usually sub 100ms when not under load) - now, it is building an index at the time, which is a blocking operation, so that may be a red herring if that is a large index. If that is not a large index, then it suggests the secondary is a little under provisioned in terms of resources.

If you can't solve the loop you can take other measures to get the secondary up and running like copying the data files, however unless you have snapshotting options that will involve stopping writes or taking down time for the duration of the copy.

  • All the Virtual machines of the mongo data base are running on A2 size (on microsoft Azure), Upgrading the to A3 can be helpful? in the primary database server I haven't edited the ulimit setting, so the nofile ulimit is 1024, and the nproc is 27490, DO you this is the reason for the connectivity problem? thanks again for the help. – Dor Sep 14 '14 at 8:11
  • ulimits might be the cause, if the primary is seeing a significant number of connections - the best way to find out is to increase the number and see if that solves the issue (or look at the available connections in db.serverStatus(). Without some detailed troubleshooting all we can do is guess at the root cause of the connection problems – Adam C Sep 14 '14 at 12:07
