Hi Marcus,

There's a properties.xml debugging logger you can enable that will keep track of what's happening with transactions, so that when an error of this kinds is reported, information about why the situation is unexpected is dumped to the log.  The logger is called "diagnostics" e.g. "org.apache.manifoldcf.diagnostics".

we are seeing "Error: Unexpected jobqueue status - record id 1484612513829, expecting active status, saw 4" from time to time.
I didn’t report it, because we were running on an old MCF version, and there were some bugreports relating to this error that are resolved in newer versions.

Now we have upgraded to latest and greatest and the error still occurred. So want to start to track this down.

Out setup is:

  • ManifoldCF 2.12, running in a Docker Container based on Redhat Linux, OpenJDK 8
  • AWS RDS Database (Aurora MySQL -> 5.6 compatible)
  • Single Process Setup

We run several Jobs (run once mode) over night with schedule windows and max runtime settings. Some of the time windows are overlapping.
At normal days some Jobs finish during their time window, some go to WAITING and will go on in the next night.

The error mostly hits at a Sharepoint Repository Job.
We have the impression, that the error is somehow related to situations, when service interruptions (e.g. connection issues) occur in other jobs.


Maybe all this is related to fundamental problems with the database or the JDBC driver

(Karl expressed his concerns about that in the maybe-related https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONNECTORS-1581 ticket)

On the other hand, there were similar bugreports in the past concerning unexpected jobqueue status and there were resolved.

Mayby there is a chance this can also be analyzed and fixed, but I do not really know where to start.

Has anybody ideas how we can track this down / debug this to get to the bottom of the problem?
What could be the first step in the analysis?

Many thanks in advance
