    Description

      Problem

      The presence of the PeriodicShardedIndexConsistencyChecker thread causes unintended refreshes on shards in all config server stepdown suites. Js tests that rely on a shard's metadata being stale can sporadically fail due to this thread running on stepup.

      Possible Solutions

      • Auditing all jstests that rely on stale shard metadata and disabling the periodic thread¬†(this has been done before).
      • Disabling the thread altogether on config server stepdown suites, and enabling it on targeted tests that test the behavior of the periodic thread.
