Special:NotifyTranslators error (transaction aborted due to write duration), email sent, with no log entry
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Hello,

I send out the Wikimedia Highlights blog post every month. This month I ran into a strange error.

Specifically - I previewed my notification on Special:NotifyTranslators. Everything was okay so I clicked send. After a few seconds I got this message (below):

Database Error: To avoid creating high replication lag, this transaction was aborted because the write duration (6.9671151638031) exceeded the 6 seconds limit.
If you are changing many items at once, try doing multiple smaller operations instead.

However, the notification tool sent out an email shortly after the error message appeared.

There is no log entry for this - https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3ALog&type=notifytranslators&user=&page=&year=&month=-1&tagfilter=

Any questions feel free to ask.

Best,

Andrew Sherman

Same for me. I just filed T129069 for this − feel free to merge tasks if they are the same underlying cause.

Not the same error.

Update: I sent out the February 2016 Highlights about an hour ago and received the same error again.

The email still went out, but I have not seen my message appear on the log for "Translation notification" (could be missing something).
