How to patch 3scale's system-sidekiq when SPHINX_DELTA & SPHINX_INDEX cronjobs fail?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • After a 3scale upgrade to 2.10 the system-sidekiq pod is logging exceptions that suggest some jobs are failing to execute with the message: uninitialized constant ThreeScale::Jobs::SPHINX_DELTA or with SPHINX_INDEX
  • Found the same log also from slowlog redis and this causes redis memory to spike and continue increasing.
