Deploy failed, no logs

I have a bot that processes messages… after about 8 minutes of waiting for new messages the deploy fails with no logs and the bot shuts down. I don’t think there is anything wrong with the bot, as it has performed fine in the past and usually gives an error in the logs if something crashes. How do I find out what’s going wrong?

By no logs, I mean no error logs… the logs that are there seem to indicate success

Hey there protojas,

It looks like you might be attempting to run a bot on Render, there are a bunch of things that you probably need to know.

Bots are best deployed to us using a Background service - these run persistently in the background and don’t expose any web server however, these service types aren’t available on the free plan.

If you try and run a bot via a web service the deployment will probably fail, typically about 10 minutes after you’ve deployed it and sometimes there are scenarios where 2 may be running for a period of time.

We’ve been alerted to issues running Discord bots on us being rate limited by Discord, this is down to how traffic leaves our services - this may result in you receiving a 429 from Discord or having your requests rate limited - we’ve reached out to Discord but we don’t have a solution here yet.

If this doesn’t answer your question just let us know and we’ll try and help where we can,

Thank you, the not exposing the web service did seem to be the problem. I appreciate the quick response!
