Description

4 years ago
Separated from bug 1156045.

Currently --tbpl is passed only to jstests.py for warnaserr build, in autospider.sh, to avoid timeout (bug 1101662 comment #11).
> if [[ "$VARIANT" = "warnaserr" ]]; then
>     export JSTESTS_EXTRA_ARGS=--tbpl
> fi

As next step, we could run some faster variants (maybe --*-eager flags?) on debug builds too.

here are results of time taken by each variant on local linux64 warnaserrdebug build,
so, 2 variants with --ion-eager is slower than others.
What's the priority between all of them? do we need to run at least one --ion-eager?

Added --tbpl-debug option (this should be renamed though), which adds following flags, and currently no timeout happens.
If other flags are more important, please tell me.

Linux debug SM(e) and Linux x64 debug SM(e) could be run with --tbpl.
Others are already too long, I think.

oops, please ignore the number in linux64 opt SM(e) before.

Okay, both SM(e) debug builds passed with --tbpl.

Is it better to fix the name of --tbpl and --tinderbox option before this, and add proper name for the option for this patch?

Part 1: Add --tbpl-debug option to jstests.py.

Review of attachment 8599845 [details] [diff] [review]:
-----------------------------------------------------------------

I'd vote for landing this as-is, then following up with a patch to rename. I'm tempted to reuse the obsolete --jitflags. Perhaps --tbpl => --jitflags=all, --tbpl-debug => --jitflags=debug? (Or use --loop-jitflags instead of --jitflags?)

Hm. Do we need the --no-baseline --no-ion one? I assume it's by far the slowest. I'm inclined to leave it out.

Note that SM(cgc) is passing --exclude-file=cgc-jstests-slow.txt, which is why it is no longer *insanely* slow.

Part 2: Pass --tbpl and --tbpl-debug to more spidermonkey shell build variants.

Review of attachment 8599846 [details] [diff] [review]:
-----------------------------------------------------------------

We should probably come up with a good way of figuring out what the true optimum setup is here (providing a mixture of fast builds that return results quickly, debug builds that give useful assertions, etc.) But I agree with you that this is better than what we have now.
