Parsing stops with Akka Streams mapAsync

I am parsing 50000 records which contain their titles and URLs on the web page. While parsing, I am writing them to the database, which is PostgreSQL. I deployed my application using docker-compose. However, it keeps stopping on some page without any reason. I tried to write some logs to figure out what's happening, but there is no connection error or anything like that.

Here is my code for parsing and writing to the database:

object App {
  val db = Database.forURL("jdbc:postgresql://db:5432/toloka?user=user&password=password")
  val browser = JsoupBrowser()
  val catRepo = new CategoryRepo(db)
  val torrentRepo = new TorrentRepo(db)
  val torrentForParseRepo = new TorrentForParseRepo(db)
  val parallelismFactor = 10
  val groupFactor = 10
  implicit val system = ActorSystem("TolokaParser")
  implicit val materializer = ActorMaterializer()
  implicit val executionContext = system.dispatcher

def parseAndWriteTorrentsForParseToDb(doc: App.browser.DocumentType) = {
      .mapAsync(parallelismFactor) { torrentForParse: Seq[TorrentForParse] =>

 def getRecordsLists(doc: App.browser.DocumentType) = {
    val pages = generatePagesFromHomePage(doc)
    println("torrent links generated")
    val result = for {
      page <- pages
    } yield {
      println(s"Parsing torrent list...$page")
      val tmp = getTitlesAndLinksTuple(getTitlesList(browser.get(page)), getLinksList(browser.get(page)))
    println("torrent links and names tupled")
    result flatten


What may be the cause of such problems?

Put a supervision strategy to avoid stream finalization in case of error. Such as:

val decider: Supervision.Decider = {
  case _ => Supervision.Resume

def parseAndWriteTorrentsForParseToDb = {
  Source.fromIterator(() => List(1,2,3).toIterator)
    .mapAsync(1) { torrentForParse: Seq[Int] =>
      Future { 0 }

The stream should not stop with this async stage config
