PeterBowman added a comment to T162677: s52584 is taking over half of the available connections on toolsdb.

Hi, @jcrespo. Per your comment at T138283#2412013, I disabled connection pooling only for the replicas and -somehow- convinced myself that the tools-db config was good to keep as it was. Excuse my (severe) lack of understanding, I've just killed all connections and corrected the settings for any db resources that were making use of pools.

PeterBowman added a comment to T137632: misleading error about thumbnails for OGG audio files.

@matmarex if I understand it correctly, this patch overrides any explicit size set in audio files and forces it to 120px. Thus, the following code doesn't work anymore:

[[File:Example.ogg|15px|noicon]]

(I'll obviate the noicon part) This would output just the play/stop button and omit the rest of the player's layout. Such a shrinked version of the player had a purpose on eswiktionary, now it's shown in full length.

PeterBowman added a comment to T138283: Some users use persistent connections that are idle, wasting memory and other resources that could be used for other users.

Hi, @jcrespo, thank you for your quick response. I'm just starting to develop some simple tools for a relatively small project and their usage is still scarce. By now, I'll happily follow your recommendations, keep an eye on the resource usage and contact you if needed.

PeterBowman added a comment to T138283: Some users use persistent connections that are idle, wasting memory and other resources that could be used for other users.

I've disabled connection pooling by enforcing the number of idle connections to zero with an immediate eviction. In case someone finds this useful, I'm putting here the specific <Resource> attributes in Tomcat's context.xml that had to be set (in my case) in order to disable pooling:

  • minIdle="0"
  • maxIdle="0"
  • initialSize="0"
  • minEvictableIdleTimeMillis="0"

@jcrespo in spite of that policy, would it be acceptable to keep a minimal pool of short-lived idle connections (let's say 1-5 minutes, only one idle connection per finished active connection), leaving it empty if there is no activity? Does said policy apply to databases created on the shared server (tools.labsdb), too? Are there any other configuration aspects related to resource saving that should be considered (e.g. maximum number of connections)?

I'm sorry, this shouldn't have happened. I've killed those processes and disabled any scripts and webapps that had access to that db until I fix this issue.

PeterBowman added a comment to T50950: Some of my tools don't have .my.cnf / can't create databases in tools-db.

@coren: I hit a similar issue when trying to create a database with my tool (pbbot):

I launched a forcerecursivelinkupdate purge API action on 03/10 at 02:40 UTC affecting all pages on plwiktionary, a smaller peak is clearly visible on Grafana right after that. The jobs counter of this project continued growing for the next days when it usually stops after a few hours. Could this have any connection?

@lfaraone: just tested on test.wikipedia.org, I'm seeing these buttons on Special:Log even if no checkboxes are present (which is strange because even if I'm not allowed to revdel I should see the option to add/remove edit tags, now missing - possibly a regression?). BTW I wonder if the buttons could also apply to edit tags on history pages (right now the condition to be met is $user->isAllowed( 'deleterevision' ), this excludes non-sysops).

PeterBowman added a comment to T100248: Programmatically applied change tags don't show on Recent Changes.

Another issue I have encountered at the same time:

  1. Navigate to the history page on which you have recently performed an API tagged edit (see #1 above, it seems to work on pre-23/05 edits), select that revision and click on Edit tags of selected revisions.
  2. Remove the tag and apply changes. Nothing was changed, actually.
