@crazycells Yea for now we do the same too. I'll look into specific query to backup widgets only as a safe measure.
Upgrade to 1.10 ip hash taking a long time.
Am currently updating to 1.10 (from 1.9.x) and it's taking a very long time with
4. Updating NodeBB data store schema... Parsing upgrade scripts... OK | 4 script(s) found, 53 skipped → [2017/6/22] Hash all IP addresses stored in Recent IPs zset...
I assume it's going through a very large number of ips - as cpu usage is high and it's still processing. It's taken over 30 mins so far. Is there any way of checking on progress manually via mongodb cli ? Also how can I see the size of the data set ? I wonder if the list of ips stored is larger than it should be due to the time taken.
It's still processing - I'm inclined to stop it and restore the db backup until I have verification on this. Certainly if it is something that should take this long, it would be useful if it had some sort of progress bar.
the hashing finally completed. I am still interested to know how much data may be stored here, as it took 2 hours to complete. Not sure that much "recent" ip data is needed.
I think @julian added a progress bar to it maybe it is not backported to 1.10.x. The sorted set is named
ip:recentbut it has all the ips that has visited your site so it could take a while to complete.
Mmhm, because we noticed it taking a long time we added progress bar support, so you can see that it's doing something
We store the IP addresses going back to the installation of the forum, so it's possible that it's no longer needed. One could simply delete the entire
ip:recentset with no ill effects... (well, except that you'd no longer have a historical record of recent IP addresses)
