Link Watchers[edit]

Hi, we spoke a couple of months ago about LiWa in fawiki's channel and apparently you missed the last message i left you. I was on a Wikibreak until now and upon return, i noticed that the problem was still standing. Any thoughts? Thanks. -- Arian Talk 08:25, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

I'll have to have a look at that .. I guess for some commands you are not 'trusted' .. I'll ping you when I have a minute to have a look at it. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 08:30, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

Link analysis seems to have stalled[edit]

Everything seems to be present and functioning from IRC-side, however, the link analysis and thus the writing of link analysis is not present, see special:contributions/COIBot. Thinks poked at the analysis through IRC seem to queue and progress, just no output. No warnings are generated. syslog looks okay Syslogs: case: 151824 secs. coibot: 141 secs. commander: 0 secs. diffreader: 938 secs. linksaver: 85 secs. output: -1 secs. parser: 964 secs. script: -1 secs. special: 13027317 secs. Yours flummoxedly.  — billinghurst sDrewth 22:11, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: The bot has a massive backlog .. I guess it does not do too much of analysis to speed up getting rid of it. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 13:49, 29 October 2016 (UTC)
Really? it says that it is stepping through the backlog output files, writing nothing; it undertakes its xwiki requests, and writes nothing to meta. I must be missing something as backlog and status reports have been many times worse.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:02, 30 October 2016 (UTC)
Not really :-) .. it got logged out. Solved .. I hope. Please let me know if there are more problems. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 03:23, 30 October 2016 (UTC)
Okay, that makes sense. It is writing again. If there is a check that can be run, beyond staring at its absence, please let me know.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:48, 30 October 2016 (UTC)
I think it tells you as an error message in a channel. Maybe should be added to my bot-monitoring channel. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 10:54, 30 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi! I wonder why the bot does this kind of stuff? Repeating each minute that the link is already blacklisted does not seem like a good plan :) Regards, —MarcoAurelio 15:51, 21 November 2016 (UTC)


[17:02] mafk    COIBot join rc channel #es.wikibooks
[17:03] mafk    COIBot join lw channel #es.wikibooks

seems not to work. Can you do some magic? Thanks! —MarcoAurelio 16:04, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

The former is strange, seems like it is looping somewhere. I'll try to have a look.
The latter .. sigh .. it is something that needs a rewrite by copy from from LiWa3 .. probably too many channels in one module. Also for this, I'll try to have a look. I hope to have some time mid December for a bit better bot maintenance work. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 03:18, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

Please restart COIBot[edit]

Hi. I think COIBot needs a restart. It is not responding to any IRC commands. I left you a message at wikitech regarding this as well. Regards, —MarcoAurelio 16:06, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

@MarcoAurelio: I have started the bot again this morning - it appeared to have crashed. I'll check a bit in a couple of hours. (sorry for the late reply, I have limited access to the servers at the moment). --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 05:54, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
Found a lost 15 minutes. Made some code adaptations. Problem seems to be that the LinkSaver has serious work on some domains, and that stalls the bot. I have built in a bit of a catch to keep it a bit calmer. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 14:36, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
