For Job “A” it use as repository “Windows Share” connector  and for output 
For Job “B” it use as repository “Generic Web” connector and for output “Solr”

No own connector

I set DEBUG but I have no log

Hi Mario,

What repository connector are you using for Job "B"?  Is it your own connector? 
 If so, you likely have bugs in it that are causing problems with the entire 
framework.  Please verify that this is the case; ManifoldCF In Action is freely 
available online and you should read it before writing connectors.

The problems are not likely due to HSQLDB internal locks.

Major errors should be logged already in manifoldcf.log by default.  If you 
want to set up connector debug logging, you need to set a properties.xml 
property, not a logging.xml property:

<property name="org.apache.manifoldcf.connectors" value="DEBUG"/>

I setup jobs :
Job “A” to crawls “Windows Shares”
Job “B” to crawl my internal site

The problem was when I tried to aborted the second job “B”
It hang in aborting state

After, I tried to start job “A” but it hanged in “Starting” state, and not 
start, after, I tried to abort it too and it hanged in Aborting state as of “B” 

I increased log level of logging.xml to “info” but when I start manifoldcf as 
standalone I do not have many info on the logs/manifoldcf.log

I read:
INFO 2018-06-12T15:58:02,748 (main) - dataFileCache open start
INFO 2018-06-12T15:58:02,753 (main) - dataFileCache open end

And nothing more

So, I think that there could be a lock situation in the internal HSQLDB that I 
am not able to solve.

Hi Mario,

If you are using the single-process model, then stuck locks are not the problem 
and the lock-clean script is inappropriate to use.  Locks are all internal in 
that model.  That is why lock-clean is only distributed as part of the 
file-based multiprocess example.

Please tell me more about what you have set up for your jobs on this example.  
How many are there, and how many documents are involved?  The embedded HSQLDB 
database has limits because it caches all tables in memory, so the 
single-process example is not going to be able to handle huge jobs.

Please have a look at the log to be sure there are no serious errors in it.

Hi Mario,

It appears you are trying to use embedded HSQLDB in a multiprocess environment. 
 That is not possible.

In a multiprocess environment, you have the following choices:

(1) standalone HSQLDB
(2) postgresql
(3) mysql

Hi Mario,

Two things you should know.  First, if you have very large jobs, it can take a 
while to abort them.  This is because the documents need to have their document 
priority cleared, and that can take a while for a large job.  Second, what you 
describe sounds like you may have stuck locks.  This can happen if you are 
using a multiprocess setup and are using file-based synchronization and you 
kill jobs with kill -9.  To clean this up, you need to perform the lock-clean 

(1) Shut down all manifoldcf processes
(2) Execute the lock-clean script
(3) Start up the manifoldcf processes

I tried to restart manifoldcf, I restarted the machine, but the job hangs in 
aborting status.

Now, I am not able to start every job because they stay in starting status

How could I solve it?
