I have installed a Gitlab CE instance on a Debian Jessie machine and all is working fine, the users are very happy with the features that it offers.
However, if we do not use this instance for about 4 days, it stops responding when we come back, all we get is the 502 error page.
We came up with the following workaround:
Login on the server
wait 30 seconds
wait 5 minutes
With this, the instance is back up and working as expected.
When issuing the stop command, we get a timeout error on the sidekiq item.
Is this a known issue?
Is there a fix/workaround?
We are currently using version 8.9.4 but I could not see anything obviously related in the changelog for later versions.
Any help would be most welcome.
