How to resolve an "Internal Server Error XDMP-LEXVAL: ss:request-rate" exception
16 February 2021 02:58 PM


For hosts that don't use a standard US locale (en_US) there are instances where some lower level calls will return data that cannot be parsed by MarkLogic Server. An example of this is shown with a host configured with a different locale when making a call to the Cluster Status page (cluster-status.xqy):


The problem

The problem you have encountered is a known issue: MarkLogic Server uses a call to strtof() to parse the values as floats:

Unfortunately, this uses a locale-specific decimal point. The issue in this environment is likely due to the Operating System using a numeric locale where the decimal point is a comma, rather then a period.

Resolving the issue

The workaround for this is as follows:

1. Create a file called /etc/marklogic.conf (unless one already exists)

2. Add the following line to /etc/marklogic.conf:

export LC_NUMERIC=en_US.UTF-8

After this is done, you can restart the MarkLogic process so the change is detected and try to access the cluster status again.
