no coibot in irc[edit]

gone. Not sure whether it has been caught up in the labs reboots or what. All I see is quiet.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:26, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

Sigh .. labs .. I'll have a look as soon as I have time. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 08:58, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Notice of review of adminship[edit]

Hello Beetstra. In accordance with Meta:Administrators/Removal and because you have made fewer than ten logged administrator actions over the past six months, your adminship is under review at Meta:Administrators/Removal/October 2015. If you would like to retain your adminship, please sign there before October 09, 2015. Kind regards, MF-W 03:57, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

@MF-Warburg: .. again .. contributions - those are apparently not taken into account. This is just the same as what happened in April.

COIBot not seeing trusted users, when initiating cloak protected commands[edit]

Hi Beetstra. Trying to issue "report xwiki ...", "quickcreate ...", etc. " and other cloak protected commands to no luck. In the circumstances where COIBot talks back it is stating User wikisource/billinghurst is not in my list of trusted users. I have checked the file (present) and re-edited the file (just in case), restarted commander (successful), ... all to no avail.

COIBot is running, saving files and generally reporting, all as expected. The LiWa3 are there as _1, _2 and _4. There are 871 files in backlog, and that is slowly growing. So something seems a little askew. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 21:29, 12 December 2015 (UTC)

Sigh, something is wrong with the db. Something has been changed, bots are unresponsive altogether. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 03:23, 13 December 2015 (UTC)
See T121094. Basically the bot has been throttled to death. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 03:33, 13 December 2015 (UTC)
Thx. You will see that James commented. He did get some extra commentary from me about the lack of outreach, among a few lesser points. He said that he will follow up.  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:12, 13 December 2015 (UTC)
Outreach from WMF? .. where did I complain about that before .. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 05:39, 13 December 2015 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: I've killed the Analysers - so nothing goes into the db, all goes into the analyser queue now. As long as there is one connection, the db is further quite useless probably. I presume that it is a faulty query or a missing index that is the problem, but ... --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 11:29, 13 December 2015 (UTC)
OK, LiWa3 is now really dead.  :-( --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 11:37, 13 December 2015 (UTC)
User:COIBot/XWiki/ was in a loop.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:39, 13 December 2015 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: Whatever, I've taken COIBot, LiWa3 and XLinkBot offline, and have replied to the Phabricator with an angry remark. This is not the friggin' first time that they (last time it was the devs) do things without announcing it, and it takes me hours and hours to take them back on. First shoot, then ask questions seems to be a WMF motto. The databases will run just fine if bot operators will choose to use another place to run them. You've got a spare server in your basement? --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 11:51, 13 December 2015 (UTC)

1h 6m fwiw[edit]

… that is the current amount of time that COIBot takes to respond to "whereadded", "report xwiki …" commands. :-/ and that other responses are still pending and that time gap has passed.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:34, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Still the old problem - the database is growing so unseemingly big that it starts to seriously lag in counting .. I need to restrict COIBot in a different way. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 11:37, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
