Description Jack Neely 2004-06-18 09:57:33 EDT
Description of problem:
I got quite a few emails tonight from my RHN Proxy with a couple
different SSL errors connecting with the RHN parent.  This seems to be
a regular occurance.  The date in question is 

   Fri, 18 Jun 2004 06:33:25 -0400

I'm attaching a couple emails of the different tracebacks.

06/18/04 -- SSL read error

This error happens quite often.

We had a bit of downtime when we upgraded code on the hosted side at
those times. If everything is operating smoothly again, then... all
should be well.

Not overly pretty error messaging I know.. alas...

Lemme know if it happens again please.

Moving to a NEEDINFO status for the time being.

RHN Traceback

I'm assuming there was maintenance on RHN last night.  Got several hundred of
the attached email.  The feature request in this case is to have a system that
understands the difference between downtime and failure and have the Proxy
servers handle it properly.

RHN Proxy traceback

I got 400 copies of the above email this morning.
Comment 6 Jack Neely 2004-08-23 09:35:11 EDT
Again, if there was a maintenance window last night 1) your users
would like to know and 2) the RHN PRoxy servers should be able to
handle the difference between maintenance and failures.
Comment 7 Todd Warner 2004-09-16 00:40:58 EDT
outage policy is in the midst of revision. I assume you are on

Spamming admins: Yup. Changing summary to reflect this is the driving
                 issue here.

"socket.sslerror with Proxy connecting to parent"
--> "proxy: don't spam during an outage"

I.e., we need to figure out a way to inform, but not over-inform.
Probably need to digest emails maybe for tracebacks? Dunno.

Punting to you misa; it's your bag now.

Comment 12 Miroslav Suchý 2008-04-30 08:57:25 EDT
I think this could we doable. We should request from hosted team some method to
indicate that is outage (like definition of sorry page).

Duplicate of 309071
Already fixed in RHN Proxy 5.1
We do not send email if there is connection error, just write up message to log.
