I had an index fail with NoClassDefFoundError - this then meant that all Jira functionality was lost (couldn't search for or create issues, admin tools all messed up)
Stopping Jira, deleting indexes and removing plugins from installedplugins and then re-starting overcame and I gradually added plugins re-indexing as I went and re-index went fine at each stage
I upgraded Groovy Runner from 2.1 Beta 7 to 2.1 Beta 8 and I didn't get the NoClassDefFoundError but the re-index did fail, this time with Too Many Open Files
I upped ullimit to 4096 and it now re-indexes successfully
I don't have that many Groovy Files (1 scripted field is a file and a few workflow transitions have groovy files) and this is a test system with relatively low volume of issues so I'm reticent to move it to production until I overcome the issue.
Any ideas why it might be keeping too many files open (or indeed why the first time failed with NoClassDefFoundError and not the 2nd when I didn't change any scripted files or script transitions/fields)?

Which class was not found?
No... sounds improbable that nothing changed but you got different results. Have you got the log files?
> I upped ullimit to 4096 and it now re-indexes successfully
4096 is really very low... the ulimit for open files is probably not going to be related to the volume of issues.
Thanks for the super quick answer - the only change between the 2 times was upping the version of the groovy plugin.
It didn't specify the class that it couldn't find
I upped ulimit from 1024 to 4096 as outlined as it
I'm not sure how the indexing works and whether it would need to open a file for each issue that has a scripted field that has groovy file?
I do have log files and screenshots - what would be the best way to get them to you?
Would I be better changing to inline groovy for the custom fields and transitions rather than opening the file?
Here is a snippet of the log from the first failure the NoClassDef.. so it appeared then that it failed to find the class for the Index failure.. but the original error was the same too many files open - I suspect it must have failed to read from the class path due to too many files open issue

Hi - so it seems GRV-206 is not related to my problem but to the groovy version.
I've unearthed something deeper in the log - there was a nullpointer being thrown on one of my equalsIgnoreCase checks which was occuring on a null object
Perhaps the script runner is not closing files when hitting exceptions like this and that is why it is now hitting the Too many open files issue?
Shall I create a GRV issue so I can upload logs etc?
OK I now have it narrowed down to one scripted field that uses a file - if I delete that field it indexes fine, with the field there it dies with too many files open
It could just be that the script is taking a while to pull results so that during indexing more and more files get open
I'll raise an issue and send you the lsof output and further details
We have the same problem here - we had it before and it still exists with the upgraded versions of JIRA and Script Runner. We are now at JIRA 6.3.7, and Script Runner 3.0.6.
If we keep Script Runner enabled, and perform a Reindex of JIRA (full or background), the indexes become corrupted. The problem is solved by disabling Script Runner and relaunching the indexing
I am surprised that we are just a few to report this problem, even though it has been existing with our company for a while. We are keeping the plugin disabled, and we're enabling it only when we need to Copy a project in the Built In scripts section...
I was wondering if there is a way to disable indexing Custom Scripted Field made by Script Runner? In our environment we are creating html content. Apparently, when we remove groovy script and add "return '' " indexing works fine but when complete script is generating html index is corrupt.
