503 when batch-editing tasks in Phab
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Wanted to mass-edited 124 tickets in Phab via (adding a project) for ticket 1282 and while that was running I got this:

Request: POST, from via cp1044 cp1044 ([]:80), Varnish XID 1589601643
Forwarded for: phabupdate, my.ip.address,
Error: 503, Service Unavailable at Thu, 27 Nov 2014 16:01:54 GMT

Looks like it kills itself pretty exactly after 100 tasks. Might be coincidence.

Looks like it kills itself pretty exactly after 100 tasks. Might be coincidence.

Actually the number 100 here is coincidence, it's probably based on a certain timeframe instead.
I'm not convinced yet this is an upstream issue but would need somebody in Wikimedia to investigate who has access to the lower stack.

I'm afraid that's some timeout on our side and nothing in upstream code

I just triggered this after 85 out of 131 tasks so it's not about the number but about the time.

Have not seen this problem lately when batch-editing ~160 tasks. Not sure if it still exists (or if stuff just has gotten faster). Setting status to STALLED.
