Snuba consumer crashes during migration 9.1.2 -> 21.x

During the upgrade from 9.1.2 the snuba consumer pod on our Kubernetes Deployment (bare metal, converted docker-compose.yaml via ‘kompose’) keeps crashing after a few hours during the upgrade process:

 KeyError: 'received'

The upgrade finished after a few hours - so far succesfully, but the snuba consumer pod does’nt start up anymore - keeps crashing with the same error.

Sentry Version we are using is:
sentry, version 21.2.0.dev0 (718fa19bc161)
(had an issue with an unhandled exception during the upgrade - Error importing events during upgrade from 9.1.2 to 20.11 (and up) - #9 by BYK)

@lynnagara any ideas?

just getting a little more specific: this only happens during upgrading with importing the events.
I don’t get this error with a clean install or when skipping importing all the issues/events with: SENTRY_SKIP_EVENTS_BACKFILL_FOR_10=1

Hi @sraisl

If I had to guess, it sounds like you might have at least one event that isn’t valid - specifically missing both the “received” or “timestamp” value in the events and nodestore tables in postgres, which is where the script looks for the received value. Are you able to check whether that might be the case?

Hi @lynnagara!
Sure. Could you tell me which tables to check in particular?
I checked for “received” or “timestamp” columns in “nodestore_node” and “sentry_eventmapping” but these tables don’t have these columns…

Hi @sraisl, apologies just double checked the table names. The script looks in 2 potential places for a received value:

  1. nodestore_node table - in the “data” gzipped dict column, a value for the “received” key
  2. sentry_message table - the “datetime” column (this table only exists before the upgrade, it should have been dropped afterwards)
