Today, an hg push to mozilla inbound resulted in an entry appearing on tbpl and treeherder, but with no builders triggered:

Tree herder:


hg log:

hg push log:

No results returned when running:
select * from changes where revision='ecd4f1368b7a'
against the production scheduler database.

No entries generated in:

Push log states a push time of:
06/10/2014 04:55:59 PDT

According to:
a reconfig of all masters completed at:
06/10/2014 05:15

The suspected cause currently is that this reconfig interfered with the hg poller running on the buildbot scheduler master - am currently investigating buildbot scheduler logs.

First reference in scheduler log:

Now scanning the lines between for clues...

This looks like a reconfig error:

As you see above, the suspected reconfig error happened during the same second as the changeset was first found:

We should find the root cause of comment 2 and solve...
That's a spurious message, we see that all the time.

The root cause of missing pushes is that during the reconfig the old poller gets deleted and a new poller gets created. If a push happens between those events, then the new poller will assume the new push is the "latest" one, and will only find pushes that happen after that.

Does this explain the events that happened? When did the reconfig happen on this master? When did the new poller get created?
