TiDB Version: 5.4.0
After TiFlash OOM, it enters a continuous crash—>running—>crash… infinite loop.

Even after disabling queries to TiFlash, TiFlash still starts up. All three TiFlash instances OOM almost simultaneously, and after that, none of the TiFlash instances can start up.

Drop the flash table. Is your TiFlash deployed separately or together with TiDB?

What does the deployment architecture look like? And the configuration details.
Can replicas be disabled on-site to start?

First, remove the existing synchronization configuration, then scale down all TiFlash nodes, and scale them back up to see if it works.

Then my 3TB of data is gone, right?

Data can be resynchronized as long as TiKV has the data.

The data is redundant. Just delete it first and then create it again.
