I pushed something to try with a recent m-c revision to retrigger some tests and assess their failure rate. The build failed due to a time out:

Indeed, did that on three of its last ten jobs, thanks for pointing it out.

I also hit this on bld-lion-r5-035: https://treeherder.mozilla.org/#/jobs?repo=try&revision=ba6f8590eec7
and bld-lion-r5-013: https://treeherder.mozilla.org/#/jobs?repo=try&revision=6e9236d69cdc (the B2G Desktop OSX build. The OS X 10.8 opt was also bld-lion-r5-027.)

Just looking through try on treeherder seems to show a bunch of others too, though I'm not sure if it's all the same problem.
Might well be something different, but we did have a previous episode not long ago where the warranty on a bunch apparently expired all at once, and diagnostics found bad disks on all of them.

what's odd is that this seems to happen only on try unless my starring skills are lacking in https://bugzil.la/1154377
Right, it's only on try.

That cannot be because all try builds are clobbers: thanks to a build system bug, whenever someone removes a jarred file, which they do once or twice a week, we have to clobber the OS X opt build (and we generally forget that fact and clobber every OS X build), so we do plenty of clobbers on non-try.

It could be from ccache, though the spots where we seem to be when we time out (one fairly popular one being "while we're doing nsinstall js/src/shell") doesn't much smell like it to my uneducated nose.

It could be that we need to reimage the try build slaves for some unknown reason, but the reimage of bld-lion-r5-016 to test that possibility just died without it coming back and it's just sitting idle.

It could be that we have a whole lot of try build slaves with bad disks, since we did have an episode of this same failure on OS X build slaves just a few months ago, and broken ones would build up on try where nobody stars failures in existing bugs much less files new bugs, whereas if a non-try slave started timing out 3-of-10 it would be disabled, diagnosticized, and fixed. bld-lion-r5-027 and bld-lion-r5-028 got diagnostics started running yesterday to test that theory.
But apparently my sense of smell is inaccurate, since it was sccache according to bug 1154377.
