#4801 new defect

render_list ignoring current tiles with --all parameter

Reported by: openstreetmap@… Owned by: tile-serving@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: mod_tile Version:
Keywords: render_list prerender force all patch Cc:


When using the --all parameter, render_list will always render every tile. When not using the --all parameter, it will check if there is already a current tile, and will only render such tile again with the --force parameter.

I want to use --all to prerender tiles, but I also want the option to kill the render_list process and continue later. For this, I need --all without implicit --force. Furthermore, the implicit --force is counterintuitive.

I have created and attached a .patch for this.

What is the status of this ticket? Has the patch been applied? I tried applying it to the render_list.c file from the mod_tile git repository but received errors. (installing mod_tile as per instructions at:

I need to run a server and am trying to pre-render zoom 0-15 but I also need to reboot the VM periodically and render_list keeps trying to re-render tiles it's already done; I'd like it to only render missing tiles in the given zoom range.

Thanks for the great work, guys. It's definitely appreciated.
