Hi. Why does it sometimes happen that I have flows that have been scheduled (or something), but they have no state?

That’s pretty weird. Do they persist if you toggle and untoggle the schedule?

Yup
I got to work this morning finding my GCP VM frozen up Forced shut it down, restarted the Prefect server (but not the agent), now I found those phantoms again. Wondering if it could be that they build up and eventually somehow lead to the server getting to this state

i don’t think they can build up because the max flow runs you can have schedule for a time by default is 10. this kinda makes it seem like they are already persisted in the database without state. what version are you on?

Oh my bad. This slipped my mind. Will leave a message for the team now
Sorry I got no ideas on this one at the moment
Maybe try deleting the Flows and seeing if it goes through? I think we have other checks in Cloud that explicitly don’t allow this to happen there
