Loop on "Comic Information Being Loaded"

Post by Methanoid » Thu Aug 30, 2018 12:05 pm

2000AD seems to give Mylar issues due to the number of issues... but I hit refresh comic (to get it to pick up the new issue this week) and its been stuck for several hours reloading info

Log says: 2018-08-30 10:36:54 ERROR Could not locate exceptions.csv file. Make sure it is in datadir: /config/mylar

I know I have had this before and I thought I had reported it but cannot see it anywhere....

I am running Mylar via a Docker from Linuxserver.io if that changes anything

Don't think running it in a docker would impact things. The 2000 A.D is a huge series, and yeah it can take a few minutes for it to complete the refresh properly. If you hit it before the process completes it just keeps on opening up subsequent refreshes of the same series and eventually they'll either lock, or you could even hit the CV API limit as you'd be hitting it more than once / second in theory.

I believe the docker silences the log to just log errors, so it's not a surprise that it's throwing only that error (the exceptions.csv file should be located in the same directory as the program - just like it shows in github if you were to view the file listing there). You might have to enable debug logging first (Logs tab, toggle verbose ON) and then perform a Refresh Series and see what the log shows and/or where it actually stops in the process.

There are a few series that cause problems with Mylar when it comes to readily showing the results to the screen. 2000 A.D. being one, the Uncanny X-men being another (1981), and the Amazing Spider-Man (1963) are some that we're aware of having this problem.

Trying to work through speeding up the display properly so that it only has to load what's being shown on the screen at the given time, but again time is a factor in this as well as manpower ;) It's on the radar, just might take a bit of time before it hits the dev branch, but it would be a nice thing to have present regardless.
