Im seeing in the log ‘Mutable item *** has local modifications that will be discarded’. What does it mean?

Artifactory performs some of it's operations in memory to shorten transaction time and to lower database overload.

In case Artifactory fails writing the in memory changes to the database it emits a warning about the uncommitted changes ("Mutable item has local modifications that will be discarded").

This could be due to a long running transaction that prevented another transaction to complete successfully therefore the failing transaction reported which changed couldn't be committed to the database.
