What are "Stale" entries in the deployed sessions list?


The system keeps track of the state of every deployed machine via a set of cooperating processes on the set of servers including the colama server. Sometimes however, the load on a given server or a hardware failure might preclude timely updates being sent to the colama server. Rather than displaying the last known state of a machine, in these circumstances, the system marks the status as "Stale" to indicate that something might be amiss.



  • The most common reason for a deployment to be marked as stale is that the server allocated to it is switched off. 
  • Admins should consider following the link in the server column on a row marked "Stale" and follow up with diagnostics.
