1.16.154567 - Server script_*.log file repeatedly filled with player logout "already removed" messages
Assigned, NormalPublic

Description

Every once in a while (perhaps once every couple of months), my vanilla DayZ server suddenly spams the script_*.log file with messages similar to the following:

SCRIPT       : [Logout]: Skipping player dFjrJT7Lqwc6GrBAFdB_ix_9Kn1QIbwbp3hU8fAczt4=, already removed
SCRIPT       : [Logout]: Skipping player dFjrJT7Lqwc6GrBAFdB_ix_9Kn1QIbwbp3hU8fAczt4=, already removed
SCRIPT       : [Logout]: Skipping player dFjrJT7Lqwc6GrBAFdB_ix_9Kn1QIbwbp3hU8fAczt4=, already removed
SCRIPT       : [Logout]: Skipping player dFjrJT7Lqwc6GrBAFdB_ix_9Kn1QIbwbp3hU8fAczt4=, already removed
SCRIPT       : [Logout]: Skipping player dFjrJT7Lqwc6GrBAFdB_ix_9Kn1QIbwbp3hU8fAczt4=, already removed
SCRIPT       : [Logout]: Skipping player dFjrJT7Lqwc6GrBAFdB_ix_9Kn1QIbwbp3hU8fAczt4=, already removed
SCRIPT       : [Logout]: Skipping player dFjrJT7Lqwc6GrBAFdB_ix_9Kn1QIbwbp3hU8fAczt4=, already removed
...

These messages continue to spam the log file until my host's 100GB file system quota is exhausted and the server completely locks up. The only way to recover is to stop the server, delete the script_*.log file, and then start the server again.

The corresponding DayZServer_x64_*.RPT file does not show anything out of the ordinary

Steps To Reproduce

I have no idea how to reproduce this issue but I did have one player report that their game crashed right before it happened. In this case, I found these log lines near the end of the DayZServer_x64_*.RPT file:

17:28:23.790 [Disconnect]: No packets from 1708722061
17:28:23.790 [Disconnect]: Start script disconnect 1708722061 (dbCharacterId 1 dbPlayerId 1) logoutTime 15

The remaining log lines in the file were just 10 seconds worth of memory usage, average server FPS, and player count messages.

could you let know that Has the problem been solved? and how.

thank you so much.

This is still happening with DayZ 1.18. I just had it happen again on one of my servers.
