Ticket #825 (closed defect: fixed)
Zombie builds stuck in FileDownload
|Reported by:||catlee||Owned by:|
We have slaves running buildbot 0.7.9 attached to a master running 0.7.10. On occasion, a slave will get disconnected from the master while doing a FileDownload? step.
When it reconnects to the master, the master notices a duplicate connection, and attempts to disconnect the old slave. It doesn't manage to stop the old build, however, so you can end up with one slave running old builds for weeks at a time until the master is finally restarted.
It is impossible to Stop Build these old builds.
