Most often occurring when first rebooting after upgrading a BIG-IQ 7000 system, the BIG-IQ user interface becomes unstable or unavailable.


The postgres service does not start for some time, often up to an hour. During this period other critical services also cannot start or cannot operate correctly.


This is most often seen on first bootup into an upgraded BIG-IQ 7000 system. Other rare cases might also exist.


Find the remaining child processes with this command: # pgrep -a -u postgres Kill these processes with the "kill" command. Typically the only processes that need to be killed are listed with "autovacuum" in the process title, so start with those.

Fix Information

This issue is now fixed and the BIG-IQ user interface displays properly.
