The short term solution would be to increase the logger timeout in the ODB under
and set it to 6000 (one minute). But that is curing just the symptoms. It would be
interesting to understand the cause of this error. Probably the logger takes more than 10
seconds to start or stop the run. The reason could be that the history grow too big (what
we have right now in MEG II), or some disk problems. But that needs detailed debugging on
the logger side.
