[21:51:34] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: FYI, repeatedly got 503s while trying to post a correction to a story. Happened around 2021.01.11 12:24 ET
[21:55:22] <Bytram> Edit story, make change, clicked update, ~10sec delay, got 503 (varnish error), clicked back in my browser, clicked update again, another delay, another 503. Closed lab. Reopened edit from story, corrected same, clicked update, another delay, and another 503. Gave up, went back to refresh original story intending to try editing from a fresh source... and saw the change HAD been made.
[23:28:55] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, varnish doesn't log by default. have to explicitly tell it to and it's very verbose.
[23:30:25] <Bytram> all or nothing? Why am I not surprised? Thanks. Would it help any if we mention every time we get one?
[23:30:42] <Bytram> Maybe there's something in some other log that correlates?
[23:31:18] <TheMightyBuzzard> not unless i have logging running
[23:31:28] <TheMightyBuzzard> nothing in any other log
[23:31:34] <Bytram> k
[23:32:25] <TheMightyBuzzard> hits about a meg of text every five minutes to give you an idea of the verbosity
[23:32:53] <chromas> can't adjust the log level?
[23:32:56] <Bytram> speaking of which, IIRC, we were up to something like 1.2 GB in that apache error log. I'm surprised there is no, what's the term? rollover on the log each day?
[23:33:51] <Bytram> The, just the size of each log file could itself be a clue as to how things were going.
[23:34:06] <Bytram> s/^The/Then/
[23:34:07] <SedBot> <Bytram> Then, just the size of each log file could itself be a clue as to how things were going.
[23:34:31] <chromas> anything good in the log?
[23:38:16] <Bytram> the apache error log was all new to me, and at times recording a message every 3-5 seconds. Long lines and word wrap made it difficult to follow along.
[23:39:44] <Bytram> One common manifestation were errors like expecting INT for a comparison bu the provided value (provided in the log) was certainly a string.
[23:40:03] <TheMightyBuzzard> what apache error?
[23:40:23] <Bytram> gotta look, give me a bit to get back on'
[23:40:32] <TheMightyBuzzard> too late, zipping up the current log
[23:48:09] * Bytram could prolly unzip it (the log, that is)
[23:48:48] <Bytram> Ahh! "log rotate" that was the term I was trying to remember!
[23:50:46] <TheMightyBuzzard> don't unzip it. i like it much better at 21M than 1.9G
[23:50:57] <Bytram> ;^)
[23:51:35] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: Thanks again for handling the certs! I hope your headache is abating?!
[23:51:38] <TheMightyBuzzard> use xzless if you really need to peruse it instead of waiting on shiny new errors that are bound to crop up.
[23:51:54] <Bytram> =blame
[23:52:06] <TheMightyBuzzard> headache was a lack of caffeine headache. kidney was the prollem. mostly sorted now.
[23:52:33] * Bytram is fully capable of creating^W revealing new error
[23:52:40] <Bytram> Oh, right. good!
