Bamboo: Error occurred while saving build results. Reindex failed.

We are running Bamboo 5.9.1. on Windows and get the following error on some jobs :

Error occurred while saving build results. Reindex failed.

Caused by: java.sql.SQLException: Transaction (Process ID 126) was deadlocked on lock resources with another process and has been chosen as the deadlock victim. Rerun the transaction.

	at org.hibernate.loader.Loader.doQuery(
	at org.hibernate.loader.Loader.doQueryAndInitializeNonLazyCollections(
	at org.hibernate.loader.Loader.loadCollectionBatch(

What is causing this condition?

It's a annoying since we have to manually restart build to resolve this condition. It typically seems to be generated on off the local agents.

Hi, Mark. 

I didn't get if this problem is happening in Bamboo or in the build you're running. That changes things.

If it's a problem in the build, you should check for any database transactions you're creating. Something there is causing a deadlock.

Either way, I found a KB for Confluence with a similar problem. Since it's a Confluence problem, it may not apply to this situation, but may help you better understand the problem.

Kind regards,

The error message is generated in the build plan. So what typically happens is that the build fails. I go to the related job and the error is shown in the Job Summary. See the attached screenshot. Since I am not creating database transaction, other then running builds, it must be Bamboo itself creating the deadlocks.
