During migration the db connections are not released and the data collector can keep running in memory space The migrator does not explicitly release database connections after executing each queries (select and insert). Under some conditions. The migrator may start along with data collectors. Data collectors are deactivated manually before migration; however, they still run in memory space, which causes unexpected duplicates in the new scores table and migration failure.

The Performance Analytics Scores Migration Monitor should not reset migration duration after the job has run for 24 hours "Duration" field on migration monitor page is reset after migration runs 24 hours. The issue is only reproducible on instances where migration runs more than 24 hours.
  1. Choose an instance with an extremely large pa_scores table. For example, instance with about 1 billion scores.
  2. Activate scores migration plugin.
  3. Navigate to Migration Monitor page after migration runs 24 hours.

Expected result: "Duration" field shows the correct running time.

Actual result: "Duration" field is reset after 24 hours and accumulates from then (e.g. it becomes 00:00:00 after 24 hours, which should be 24:00:00).
