Mirrormanager's crawler not running
Ugh, that's twice recently then. I need to revisit that pid handling code in MM. It looks like it does open()/write()/close(), so not a lot of room for error, but who knows...

Hi, this was due to a stuck lockfile - I've restarted the crawler now.
This happened earlier today with update-master-directory-list too, which caused people to get hash mismatches with yum. What happened was that /var/run/mirrormanager/crawler.pid and /var/run/mirrormanager/umdl.pid were empty, which prevented both of these processes from running since sometime on the 13th.
I'm not sure how this condition occurs - maybe the process updating the pidfile somehow got killed before it wrote the pid in? It is strange to see the exact same problem with two different jobs though.
