Symptoms

Realtime publish failing at the Gather step. Below are excerpts from a publish session log (downloadable from the Source publish console) to show the symptoms.

Publish session from 2013-10-30 16:19:14 to 2013-10-30 16:34:09

Typically there is only one Gather step in a publish session, however this publish session shows multiple Gather steps.

Here see the Gather is started once:
2013-10-30 16:19:14.617 [-] [Gatherer] Started Gatherer com.fatwire.realtime.DataGathererImpl with grouping strategy com.fatwire.realtime.ApprovalGroupingStrategy

Here see the Gather is started twice:
2013-10-30 16:24:10.907 [-] [Gatherer] Started Gatherer com.fatwire.realtime.DataGathererImpl with grouping strategy com.fatwire.realtime.ApprovalGroupingStrategy
2013-10-30 16:24:10.927 [-] [Gatherer] Started Gatherer com.fatwire.realtime.DataGathererImpl with grouping strategy com.fatwire.realtime.ApprovalGroupingStrategy

Here see the Gather is started three times:
2013-10-30 16:29:52.023 [-] [Gatherer] Started Gatherer com.fatwire.realtime.DataGathererImpl with grouping strategy com.fatwire.realtime.ApprovalGroupingStrategy
2013-10-30 16:29:52.117 [-] [Gatherer] Started Gatherer com.fatwire.realtime.DataGathererImpl with grouping strategy com.fatwire.realtime.ApprovalGroupingStrategy
2013-10-30 16:29:52.15 [-] [Gatherer] Started Gatherer com.fatwire.realtime.DataGathererImpl with grouping strategy com.fatwire.realtime.ApprovalGroupingStrategy

Then see multiple exceptions from the Gather step:
