What Is The Meaning Of This Long Entry In The iss-indexsvc.log About "content segment difference"? (Doc ID 2107224.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 23, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Indexing and Search Service - Version 1.0.5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

We have a script which checks the health of ISS by checking the tail of the iss-indexsvc.log.0 file for time stamps and checks if they are sufficiently recent.

The problem is, every once in a while, the tail -50 of the log file does not contain any time stamps, so the script causes a bogus alert due to these long blurbs:

As you can see, it says "1 of 21".  So there are 20 more blocks like the last 3 lines.  Sometimes these blurbs have more or fewer of the blocks.

So, yes, we could just check the timestamp of the file instead of parsing it, but what do these entries mean?  Is it anything we should be concerned about?
