I was deleting 3 million nodes when I got an out of memory. Now I can not restart the DB. The log file shows a Java out of memory error. I think the key line is this:
Exception in thread "neo4j.Scheduler-1" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space
Presumably the DB is trying to continue with the large query on restart. Is there a way to clear this down?
BUMP - It's nearly 24 hours since I raised this problem, both here and Stackoverflow, with no response.
This is more of an observation than a complaint, but it does make it difficult to see how I could use this in production, even with paid support. In addition, I have seen similarly fatal errors where the response has been 'restore from backup', which compounds the problem.
