The additional backlog has now cleared. Normal processing times should resume.
We remain with a severe backlog. The situation is still not fully under control but the situation is looking positive and will be back under control hopefully later today.
We have not seen any more errors but the backlog is still critical. We continue to attempt to clear it.
We’ve restarted the server that manages the jobrunner and it’s hasn’t errored yet so we’re running all jobs to attempt to clear the backlog. Hopefully, things will catch up and stay working.
Per https://phabricator.miraheze.org/T5993, the mediawiki jobrunner has stopped processing jobs.
We are working to resolve the issue but for now some some changes including Translation Processing by FuzzyBot, Template purges, Echo notifications and various other background tasks may take significantly longer than usual.
