here is my vague bug summary while we diagnose what is going on

could be noteworthy. could be red herring:

14:01:25 <relengbot> [sns alert] Tue 14:01:06 PST ERROR - Reconfig lockfile is older than 120 minutes.
14:01:45 <Callek> well *thats* interesting
14:11:00 <jlund> bm03 last tried starting a reconfig at master/twistd.log.2:2016-01-25 21:01:14-0800 [-] loading configuration from /builds/buildbot/tests1-linux32/master/master.cfg
14:11:17 <jlund> seems it got confused.
14:12:01 <jlund> ah, seta
14:12:07 <jlund> generic exception: Traceback (most recent call last):
14:12:07 <jlund> 2016-01-25 21:01:16-0800 [-]   File "/builds/buildbot/tests1-linux32/master/", line 47, in get_seta_platforms
14:12:13 <jlund> not sure if that's still expected
14:13:18 <jlund> I'm going to remove the lock and manually reconfig now
14:13:28 <jlund> once checkconfig passes
14:15:10 <jlund> reconfig in progress

bm03 should be in better shape now.

bm03 finished reconfig cleanly:

master/twistd.log:2016-01-26 14:18:51-0800 [-] configuration update started
master/twistd.log:2016-01-26 14:20:24-0800 [-] configuration update complete

and it's taking jobs again \o/ (after a graceful restart):

I think all jobs that were 'claimed' by bm03 while this master was out of sync with the rest of the masters either never ran or the result was out of buildapi/status's knowledge.


at this point, the evidence suggests this was a single master issue. To actually get results for those 'ghost' jobs, we need to either do some db hacking or maybe a re-trigger will do.

either way we seem to be scheduling new jobs so I think we are okay moving forward (opening trees if closed)

We added retries to workaround this in bug 1247286.
