Compation failed

Description

Getting the following error in my docker logs:
{“action”:“lsm_compaction”,“class”:“SearchMedia”,“error”:“write index: unlinkat /var/lib/weaviate/searchmedia/IfEh5Wm9v9no/lsm/property__id/segment-1716445594153867176.dbcompaction.scratch.d: directory not empty”,“index”:“searchmedia”,“level”:“error”,“msg”:“compaction failed”,“path”:“/var/lib/weaviate/searchmedia/IfEh5Wm9v9no/lsm/property__id”,“shard”:“IfEh5Wm9v9no”,“time”:“2024-05-23T06:28:05Z”}

I’m not certain what action is even causing this as I’m currently running a long batch script which does a whole bunch of stuff, like read, write, delete, etc.

Question is, when this error is triggered, does this block data insertion/deletion/update?

How do I avoid/fix this issue?

Thanks.

Just did some poking around and noticed that the folder mentioned in the error, eg

2024-05-25T05:40:42Z ERR action=lsm_memtable_flush class=SearchMedia error=flush: unlinkat /var/lib/weaviate/searchmedia/IfEh5Wm9v9no/lsm/property_species/segment-1716615577153457021.scratch.d: directory not empty index=searchmedia msg=flush and switch failed path=/var/lib/weaviate/searchmedia/IfEh5Wm9v9no/lsm/property_species shard=IfEh5Wm9v9no

What’s up with these files?
How do I clean these files up to get rid of the errors? Should I make a backup and just delete them?

As far as I can tell all the data is inserting just fine and I’m able to query it.
