Phabricator Task Daemon has problems
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

This daemon have problems. He starts and stopps a lot of times:

I guess he stops, if there is a error, and then restarts. Maybe it is a task like https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/daemon/task/17522286/ which makes problems. This tasks has 5933 failures at the moment, so maybe we need to stop him, but it can be another task too. So we need someone with console access to phabricator, to view the daemon logs. (Tasks can stopped with ./bin/worker, this works only with root access.)

@Luke081515: Where do you see "task daemon not running?" Can you link to it?

I can see it every time I edit a repo. Normaly the repo shows the status of the daemon, because it is important for pulling, so you can look at every repo to find it. This issue still ocurs today: (Screenshot one or two minutes ago):

Is the "Task Daemon" here the same as PhabricatorTaskmasterDaemon in T100400? If so, this task should be merged into that.

This bug arrives randomly...

The error is nothing to actually worry about. It happens when outbound emails are generating too many delivery errors and the taskmaster daemons recycle automatically after a few consecutive errors.

It's harmless and you shouldn't see it once the outbound mail queue clears out.
