Today we have deployed an updated version of the webservicemonitor
service that we use to help ensure that `webservice
--backend=gridengine ...` processes are actively running on the job
grid. The main change in this new version is that we have implemented
tracking of the timestamp of past restart attempts for each tool and a
restart rate limit. The initial limit we have set for this is 3
restarts per 60 minute sliding window.
This change will not stop a tool maintainer from running `webservice
restart` manually. You can read more of the reasoning behind the
change at <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T107878>.
