15:14 <@diseasearma> hm. moria1 is starting to complain
15:14 <@diseasearma> Mar 18 15:00:15.261 [warn] Invalid uptime "-29903"
15:14 <@diseasearma> so is moria2, and my bridge relay.
15:15 <@diseasearma> that's not a very useful warning message.
15:15 <@diseasearma> Mar 18 15:15:35.895 [info]

connection_dir_client_reached_eof(): Received server

15:15 <@diseasearma> info (size 2471) from server ''
15:16 <@diseasearma> is what prefaces it.
15:16 < nickm> seeing that on peacetime too
15:16 <@diseasearma> looks like my relays are going to dizum to get a

descriptor they don't have,

15:16 <@diseasearma> and it's a descriptor they don't want,
15:16 <@diseasearma> but then they go back again and get it again.
15:17 <@diseasearma> they go back once a minute
15:17 < nickm> looks like they're counting it as a download failure.
15:17 < nickm> there should be some way to mark it as perma-failed.
15:18 * nickm restarts peacetime on the 0.2.0 branch.
15:19 <@diseasearma> ok. we're going to see this come up on or-talk shortly.
15:20 <@diseasearma> i guess i could preemptively post saying it's a known

problem and will be solved 'later'.

15:20 < nickm> s/later/soon/
15:20 < nickm> we can even add a flyspray entry.
15:20 < nickm> s/we/I/

In summary, when we download a descriptor and then can't parse it, we need to remember to never try to download
it again. Also, our log message could be better.

If we haven't fixed this already, we should. It's nasty, and it should be easy enough to fix using some of the
the machinery we built to handle bug 888.

comment:2 Changed 12 years ago by nickm

Actually, AFAICT, this *is* bug 888, which Sebastian fixed. Closing as a duplicate, since 888 has a way better writeup.
