OMG! A thread entitled “URGENT ASSISTANCE NEEDED” where the thread title is actually accurate! This is unprecedented!
Hey Karl, glad you rlparker helped get things sorted for you. Runaway recursion is pretty scary at times.
I remember when I was coding in a fault-tolerant distributed system. I had just developed what I thought was a nice little “shutdown server” query I could send that would help with system maintenance and such. Then I sent it to the main query distributer rather than an individual server. As it turned out, this meant that when my query shut the server down, the distributer detected this as a failure and sent my query to another server for processing. Needless to say, this eventually shut down our entire processing farm. Very embarrassing.
Interestingly, the messaging system was guaranteed delivery, so even when we shut down the distributor, my query was reconstituted from persistent storage and shut down every server as they came back up. We eventually managed to delete the message in the database itself and restart the entire farm.
