SID-02275: ExplicitNumbering - Disabled - not view context

Status: Asked Asked TWiki version: 6.0.0 Perl version: 5
Category: ExplicitNumberingPlugin Server OS: RHEL5 Last update: 8 months ago

Hi,

Noticed debug.txt was over 14GB full which I had to empty before investigating.

There are a ridiculous number of entries in our debug log with the same line "ExplicitNumbering - Disabled - not view context".

To indicate the scale of the issue. In a period of 30 seconds there were 48 entries so explains the 14GB debug log.

ExplicitNumberingPlugin itself is enabled and used, so am reluctant to just remove the plugin if it maybe simply be an issue with how it is installed / configured.

The debug setting is not on (default), and to ensure this I have explicitly set the level as 0.

I did try turning it on for a short time but given the increase in entries (as expected) turned it back off within the minute.

An extract of the log when i had debug on - " 558 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:06 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 559 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:06 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 560 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:06 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 561 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:06 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 562 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 563 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 564 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 565 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 566 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 567 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 568 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 569 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 570 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 571 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 572 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 573 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 574 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 575 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 576 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 577 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 578 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 579 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumberingPlugin Initialzed 580 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumberingPlugin Initialzed 581 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 582 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Disabled - not view context 583 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 584 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Disabled - not view context 585 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 586 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Disabled - not view context 587 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 588 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:07 | ExplicitNumbering - Disabled - not view context 589 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:08 | ExplicitNumberingPlugin Initialzed 590 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:08 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 591 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:08 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 592 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:08 | ExplicitNumbering - Disabled - not view context 593 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:08 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 594 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:08 | ExplicitNumbering - Disabled - not view context 595 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:08 | ExplicitNumberingPlugin Initialzed 596 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:09 | ExplicitNumberingPlugin Initialzed 597 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:09 | ExplicitNumberingPlugin Initialzed 598 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:10 | ExplicitNumberingPlugin Initialzed 599 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:10 | ExplicitNumberingPlugin Initialzed 600 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:14 | ExplicitNumberingPlugin Initialzed 601 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:14 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 602 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:14 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 603 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:14 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 604 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:14 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler 605 | 2016-11-16 - 18:08:14 | ExplicitNumbering - Entering common tags handler "

The plugin itself seems to work.

Does this issue seem familiar to anyone who can shed some light on what "ExplicitNumbering - Disabled - not view context" indicates please?

Would like to resolve as 48 lines of this entry is 30 seconds seems excessive.

Discussion and Answer

Maybe this is not related to the ExplicitNumberingPlugin.

Will just have to manage this for now as I don't really have time to investigate, but if I do find some time will update any findings here.

Hi Seeta,

I don't have this plugin installed but I had a look at the code (/twiki/lib/TWiki/Plugins/ExplicitNumberingPlugin.pm) and found where ExplicitNumbering - Disabled - not view context was being written to your debug log.

===Starting at Line 113===
            TWiki::Func::writeDebug(
                'ExplicitNumbering  - Disabled  - not view  context');
            return ;

If you compare this with the content starting at line 99 you will see the same TWiki function that writes to the debug log however this time it includes the if($debug) which makes it conditional upon the $debug variable. The lack of the if statement means that it will always run the function.

    TWiki::Func::writeDebug(
        'ExplicitNumbering  - Entering common tags handler') if ($debug);

I would suggest modifying the plugin to include the if($debug).

===Starting at Line 113===
            TWiki::Func::writeDebug(
                'ExplicitNumbering  - Disabled  - not view  context') if ($debug);
            return ;

Hope this is helpful (and hopefully it works).
