[users at bb.net] lost force schedules

Hi Pierre,

That’s good to know it’s likely a UI/patience issue. Nice find with nextWorker. ☺

As I’m about to roll out Buildbot to my users, I expect them to be confused if they don’t see at least some indication that the force build request is being handled. Not a huge deal though.

Thx. ☺

Hi Greg and Honas,

I am using buildbot nine, on several environments, and I have never seen lost builds.

It is possible that the web UI gets a lost indeed sometime, and you just have to reload the web page in order to get a proper reconnection.

There is notably this bug, which could probably lead to several symptoms like the one you are describing.

Please let me know what is your source of truth, if you have been patient enough I would say all your builds should eventually finish.

Another possibility of issue which can happen and generate buildrequest stalls is if you have error in NextBuild or nextWorker/nextSlave callbacks.
Especially for nextWorker, we had a bug fixed this week (https://github.com/buildbot/buildbot/pull/2069), where and exception is nextWorker was silently ignored, and caused build to not start.

Hi Greg, I'm still quite new to using buildbot and all, But I have noticed that (sometimes) when you do a forced build it gets 'lost' in that I cannot see it in progress or anything, but often it does comeback once the build is done, either, success,failure or even exception. I thought it was just busy and sorted itself out after a while....
I don't know if this is related but on the home page sometimes I see a build in progress say build 100...waiting(with the time still counting up and up), even though it clearly is not in progress, i.e. things have moved on to say build 105 and the builds 101 to 105 have completed with success.
Has anyone else seen this behaviour?

Hi Everyone,

I’ve noticed that a forced build sometimes gets lots if the workers are busy. I’m having to stop the builds then re-submit a force build. Other times it’s fine. This last time it happened I had just restarted the master (killed it and restarted). Maybe it wasn’t finished initializing? Has anyone else seen this on 0.9.0b7?
