Statistics don't get updated.


There seems to be lock contention around trying to update the stats for Special:ActiveUsers. Seen on multipoe wikis: enwiki, commonswiki, dewiki, etc.

That would mean something else held a lock on querycachetwo and when RecentChangesUpdateJob::updateActiveUsers tried to acquire it, it turned out that it holds a lock that other thing is waiting for, right?
(Related: T198755: Log the query that caused a lock timeout)

That seems to be the only part of the code that touches querycachetwo, and it uses Database::lock to ensure that the critical section is not run multiple times in parallel. I guess this delete command (added in rMWbf8c90538dff: Make RecentChangesUpdateJob::updateActiveUsers more robust) should be inside the lock?

Still seen. Using a lock there makes sense to me.
