Restarting systemd-journald breaks ircecho service
Open, MediumPublic

Description

A restart of systemd-journald which was necessary to deploy a security update for systemd made ircecho stop working (the service itself was still running)

We should investigate/fix this before moving to stretch: kraz, the VM currently running irc.wikimedia.org runs Debian 8 ATM and starting with Debian 9 systemd-journald is managed by automated service restarts (which kick in e.g. if an underlying library like glibc is upgraded).

ircd was restarted and it seems to be working again. We should investigate why stopped it might be related to systemd upgrade?

Thanks for the report. This was caused by a restart of systemd-journald which was necessary to deploy a security update for systemd. The immediate error has been fixed by a restart of the ircecho.service, but this is something that should be investigated. kraz, the VM currently running irc.wikimedia.org runs Debian 8 ATM and starting with Debian 9 systemd-journald is managed by automated service restarts (which kick in e.g. if an underlying library like glibc is upgraded).
