Some of the most common question we get from ThreatPipes users.

I get a data consistency error when trying to stop a scan (that stopped downloading data but not produced an error). Why is this?

Data consistency error

Sometimes when your ThreatPipes instance is shut-off unexpectedly when a scan is running you will receive this error. ThreatPipes does not attempt to restart data collection when the server comes back online to avoid conflating old intelligence with new (especially when server might have gone down for days).

In such cases, you will need to re-run the scan to collect all the data for the target.
