FAQ

Running ‘dispatch database upgrade’ seems stuck.

The upgrade is most likely stuck because an existing query on the database is holding onto a lock that the migration needs.

To resolve, login to your dispatch database and run:

SELECT * FROM pg_locks l INNER JOIN pg_stat_activity s ON (l.pid = s.pid) WHERE waiting AND NOT granted;

The result of this query will give you a list of queries that are currently waiting to be executed. From there, attempt to identify the PID of the query blocking the migration. Once found, execute:

select pg_terminate_backend(<blocking-pid>);
