Katello - Never Ending Tasks


While attempting to upgrade my Katello instance I noticed it’s failing because it is complaining tasks are running. However, when I look at the tasks I see the below:

I’ve found the PID’s in the dynflow console and killed the tasks, but they keep restarting on their own. I noticed that the initial tasks were running since November! What’s going on here?


These tasks process events and messages, and are supposed to be long-running. If they are not running, Katello’s info may be out of date compared to candlepin.
