Something's afoot right now.
Got about 10 consecutive 'Project has no tasks available' work request responses.
Loading my 'all tasks' page taking forever.
Hope it's a transient thingy and not a weekend problem.

Message 1927421 - Posted: 31 Mar 2018, 1:55:57 UTC - in response to Message 1927391.  

I've posted my work_fetch_debug outputs for you in the past.
Well, I popped your ID and 'work_fetch_debug' into an advanced search, and checked the last 12 months: 11 mentions (including tonight), but no actual logs. It's too late on this side of the pond to start work on it now, but it's still a useful tool, worth trying sometime.

I know I have in the past. It may have been past 12 months. I am not going to bother searching through my posts. Easier to just wait for the usual work fetch problem and then invoke the debug so I can get new output.

I use work_fetch_debug all the time as part of my 'kick the servers' tricks. Sometimes it works, sometimes it has no effect. As Stephen mentioned, what works for one person also doesn't for another.

I also know that if I really wanted to avoid all these issues I could just revert to 6.10.58 or 6.10.60 as those revisions don't EVER have issues as Wiggo will contest vehemently. I've been at that point multiple times and have backed away at the last minute. I know that I would have to revert to controlling with app_info instead of app_config but that is easily done. Just have to be careful in editing.

On the upside, with little work going out the RTS is building up nicely :)
Hopefully when the replica lag gets to 0 the scheduler will kick back in ... hopefully.

It's going to get cold unless I turn off the A/C if the caches go dry. All machines down at least 50% now. The last time I got any work on any machine was just shy of 2 hours ago.

I was able to contact Eric, and made him aware of the servers not sending out work.

Eric just rebooted the servers.
It seems to be settling down now.
Still not getting any work though.

Not getting any work for a while, then glitches in all the server graphs, then no response from the Scheduler for a couple of requests, now the Scheduler is responding (after a minute or more), and the response is- "Project has no tasks available".

. . I am getting a mixture of "cannot contact server, project may be down" and "project has no work available". Either way my fastest machine is now devoid of work and the slowest machine is devouring its way through what remains of its allotment. The middle machine hit the jackpot and actually refilled its cache on one particuarly well favoured request, but sadly it has been a one of a kind event. (for the last few hours)

. . Poor Eric, his dedication is impressive but a big imposition for him. It always irks me when some user questions the commitment of Eric and his co-workers. Their main priority is to keep the system running (and deal with any upgrades - like Parkes :) - not to play Dear Dorothy. It would always be nice to know what is happening, but nicer to have issues resolved.

My Android phone now gets scheduler request failed: Failure when receiving data from the peer.

So probably not going to be better after the DB restart.

Yes, Eric actually thanked me last night for letting him know that things were amiss.
He IS a dedicated man.
And it also irks me when some question how much 'the staff' cares about the project.

Reading that post, and given the way things are working poorly after Eric's efforts last night, looks like we could be facing being down for most of the day today.

Yep.
A reboot didn't help, so looks like it's going to require some significant housekeeping to clean up the mess and get things working again.
