WebDav constant errors after GC scipt

After running the GC script in the docker container (which includes shutting down the server and restarting it again) i recognized a suspiciously high load on the server for a sunday and checked the logs. The displayed error message repeats all the time within an intervall of 1 min.

I guess there is something wrong in the script regarding the server restart, because after restarting the whole docker-compose instance the error disappears and the load goes back to normal.

This error seems to have its origin at the end of the GC script. It seems that the seafdav server is not shutdown properly while stopping the server.

[seafdav] is running, pid 1714942. You can stop it by: 

        kill 1714942

Stop it and try again.

Did you ever find a solution to this? I have this happen regularly (using Docker too).

Yes and no. I solved it by disabling WebDav because it was no longer needed on our Seafile instance.
