Bug 1300118 adapts the xpcom TaskQueue class a bit to be used to prevent main thread runnable flooding.  This bug will use TaskQueue in nsGlobalWindow to throttle runnables from setTimeout() and setInterval().

For example, this bug will keep this script from killing main thread responsiveness:

  function boom() { setTimeout(boom, 0); setTimeout(boom, 0); }
  boom();

I believe there is still a fair bit of orange with these patches.

Also, I'd like to add code to freeze timers if we detect that the MainThreadTaskQueue is falling behind.  In the worker patches I block the worker thread if I see a backlog > 5000 runnables.  Here I plan to use the existing "frozen" timers mechanism.  I'll detect when to resume timers by inserting a runnable in the task queue so I know when the backlog has flushed.

My new shutdown approach is to make a TaskQueue wrapper that just DTRT.  It internally handles shutdown when the TaskQueue is no longer referenced or when the browser is shutting down.  For browser shutdown new Dispatch calls are issues to the original base target.

P3 Make setTimeout() and setInterval() use the MainThreadTaskQueue. r=bz

Updated patch to make setTimeout() and setInterval() use the task queue.
These patches pass all our content tests.  There are maybe 5 browser-chrome tests that fail currently.  Trying to run them locally on an unmodified tree tends to trigger the same failures, though.  I think they are just racy.  We would need to fix them before proceeding with this, though.
My inability to run these tests actually had more to do with my xvfb args.  Apparently the tests are designed to run on 1600x1200.  I was using 640x480.

P3 Make setTimeout() and setInterval() use the MainThreadTaskQueue. r=bz

It seems there is some timeout message at the end of some browser chrome tests that races with the window closing.  If the window closes before the timer runs then the test hangs.  My changes made this happen more frequently because I no longer let more than one timer run synchronously in the same runnable.

This updates the patch to allow up to 10 timers to execute in the same runnable.  It lets me pass at least one of these browser chrome tests locally:

https://treeherder.mozilla.org/#/jobs?repo=try&revision=a668bbeee477

I'll see if I can dig out which timer specifically was causing the problem.

It seems devtools wants to check to see that certain UX components have been selected and that these selections can happen via timeouts.  So throttling timeouts makes these tests fail due to missing their carefully tuned races.

As a way around this, lets try going back to my earlier idea of exempting chrome windows from throttling.  This would make both the browser chrome harness and devtools work the same as they do today while throttling content script.

P1 Add a TaskQueue wrapper that automatically shuts down when appropriate. r=froydnj

One of the difficulties with using a TaskQueue for main thread things like windows is being able to shutdown the TaskQueue cleanly.  In a worker thread we can AwaitShutdownAndIdle(), but we can't do that on the main thread.

This helper class tries to solve the problem.  It wraps the TaskQueue as an nsIEventTarget and provides a self-closing semantic.  If the target goes out of scope then we shutdown the TaskQueue asynchronously.  If xpcom-shutdown comes, then we shutdown the TaskQueue and spin the event loop until its drained.  This lets us largely pass the nsIEventTarget wrapper around trusting that it will DTRT when we need to stop using it.

I don't love the name or that this is separate from TaskQueue itself, but I think its a good step towards figuring out what we need here.  I didn't want to just put this in DOM since I already have two different places I want to use.  I'm just using it in the window case first.

Once things stabilize I figure we could revisit the name and possibly consider rolling it into TaskQueue itself.  That is much more work, though, since we need to negotiate with the other consumers of TaskQueue.  I'd like to prove this out first.

Also note, I would have liked to implement TaskQueue as an interface here, but there is no TaskQueue interface yet.  Another enhancement we could make would be adding an nsITaskQueue or similar abstract class.  We probably can't do anything like that until Bobby comes back from PTO, though.

Anyway, I'd love to proceed for now and then incrementally improve this class if possible.  Thanks!

P2 Expose a main thread TaskQueue on nsGlobalWindow. r=bz

Here is my review comment so I don't lose it:

This patch creates a single TaskQueue for each constellation of windows.  The TaskQueue is kept on the outer window.  The existence of a TaskQueue is not guaranteed, so we provide a GetMainThreadTaskQueue() getter that can return nullptr.

The task queue can be nullptr under these circumstances:

1) Its a chrome window.  We avoid throttling chrome windows partially in order to prioritize chrome work and partially to avoid the resulting browser-chrome/devtools orange it produces.
2) The window has not yet had a docshell set.
3) The window in a new constellation has a docshell set during xpcom shutdown.

Note that we do not explicitly clear the TaskQueue when the docshell is cleared.  Its unclear if all runnables have executed by that point so we maintain the TaskQueue to preserve the ordering of runnables trailing in after de-activation.

The shutdown of the queue is handled auto-magically by the SelfCloseTaskQueueTarget wrapper class.  See P1 for the gory details.  Basically it shuts down when the target receives its last Release() or when xpcom shutdown starts.  All runnables are flushed to the main thread before the task queue is destroyed in either case.

Review of attachment 8790933 [details] [diff] [review]:
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Here is my review comment:

This patch does two things:

1) It makes the nsTimeout nsITimers fire their runnables at the window's main thread TaskQueue if its present.
2) It limits the number of timeouts we will run in a single runnable before we yield back the main thread.

Both of these are important.  Without (1) we can swamp the main thread event loop with runnables.  Without (2) we will end up blocking the main thread in a single runnable for extremely long periods when there are excessive timers in play.

We exempt chrome windows from (2) just like we exempt chrome windows from the main thread TaskQueue throttling mechanism.

Note that the limit on timeouts per runnable was a bit tricky because we can end up re-ordering nsITimer callbacks relative to our window nsTimeout list somehow.  I believe this can happen during suspend and resume.  We handle this case by always ensuring we fire at least the timer that the callback was created before.  This avoids the situation where we skip a timeout, but then the next timer runnable does not fire because the other timers were cancelled or cleared.

Suspend the window when we detect that the main thread TaskQueue is backing up.  I don't have an automated test that triggers this yet, but I verified locally that it works as expected.

And just use it everywhere; both workers and windows.  I don't really want to expose AbstractThread or TaskQueue APIs further in the code than I have to.

How are we sure that all threads are done dispatching to the task queue at this point?  (i.e. how are we guaranteed that we're not going to race deciding that this is empty, and then somebody is going to dispatch an event to it behind our back?)

Do you think it's worth explaining here why two threads can't race to this function?  (One thread would have to be destroying the outer object, and the main thread would have to be going through xpcom-shutdown.  But if the main thread is calling this function at xpcom-shutdown, then we can't be destroying the outer object, because the inner object is still holding a strong ref to it.  Right?)

Factor this computation out into a helper method, because you use it in a number of places?

Oh, you can't use NS_FORWARD_NSIEVENTTARGET because it doesn't work correctly with move-only classes.  Boo.

Well, I was trying to indicate the argument was aWeakRef boolean.  Clearly it would be nice if this took an enum. :-\

Because MaybeStartShutdown() sets the Atomic<bool> mShutdownStarted.  After that we force all Dispatch() routines to the base target instead of the task queue.  I can add a comment.

Well, the first thing this method does is check-and-set the Atomic<bool> mShutdownStarted.  That was my anti-race mitigation.  Maybe I need a mutex around mShutdownStarted instead.  It does seem two threads could get passed the conditional before either one sets the atomic.

I'll add the mutex.

Will do.  That will make it easier to use the mutex as well.

If you were going to check-and-set, what you want is Atomic::compareExchange:

http://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/mfbt/Atomics.h#575

Using that should ensure only one thread gets into this method, and then you don't have to bother with the mutex.

Thinking about this some more, what if you have:

SomeThread: checks mShutdownStarted in Dispatch*, finds it false
SomeThread: preempted
MainThread: calls MaybeStartShutdown
MainThread: spins task queue event loop
MainThread: finishes loop
SomeThread: dispatches to the task queue

Just setting the boolean isn't enough; you have to ensure that all threads have somehow finished anything they might have been doing in Dispatch.

Well, the worst case here is that the TaskQueue dispatch returns an error.  This doesn't seem too unreasonable if a thread is trying to use this thing during xpcom shutdown from a non-main-thread.

If you'd like, I could check the Dispatch() call for failure and then retry with the base target if we have entered shutdown state.

  nsIEventTarget*
  InternalTarget() const
  {
    // This can be called by any thread.  Consult our Atomic<bool> shutdown
    // flag.  If we have not been shutdown then return the task queue.  Otherwise
    // return the base target.
    return mShutdownStarted ? mBaseTarget : mTaskQueueTarget;
  }

  nsresult
  Dispatch(already_AddRefed<nsIRunnable> aEvent, uint32_t aFlags)
  {
    // Any thread
    nsresult rv = InternalTarget()->Dispatch(Move(aEvent), aFlags);
    if (NS_FAILED(rv) && mShutdownStarted) {
      rv = InternalTarget()->Dispatch(Move(aEvent), aFlags)
    }
    return rv;
  }

Or I can just wrap all of Dispatch() in a mutex.

Is, uh, that really guaranteed?  Looking at TaskQueue::DispatchLocked, I see a lot of different failure conditions.  Though I guess we won't hit the AbortIfFlushing condition, and dispatch to the underlying event target really ought to be infallible.  So maybe we'll only fail if we're shutting down.

Well, AbortIfFlushing is dead code. Nothing I could find sets mIsFlushing.  (Have I mentioned I don't love some of the stuff in AbstractThread/TaskQueue land?)

That just leaves shutdown and real dispatch failure.  I think propagating the real dispatch failure back is reasonable.  Double-attempting it should not have any impact other than a perf penalty during this rare error condition.

We're about to change the naming. You mean here 'tab group'.

Why the task queue is called MainThreadTaskQueue? That sounds like something bound to the main thread, but here we can have actually
several task queues, one per tab group.
Perhaps call it GetTabGroupTaskQueue? Though, I'm not quite happy with that either, since only some tasks are supposed to be queued here.

Well, a TaskQueue can target any thread or nsIEventTarget.  So I was trying to indicate which thread the runnables for the TaskQueue would eventually run on.  While this may seem implicit here, its an important distinction for worker threads.  And I was trying to use uniform naming throughout.

I guess I was thinking the window would have a "task queue that goes to the main thread", and its somewhat abstracted which task queue that is.  The window picks the right one when its activated.  It may create its own or use the tab group's TaskQueue.  The caller of the code should not care, though.  It should just use the TaskQueue associated with the window regardless of the source.

Does any of that make sense?

Well, not really :) Window always lives on the main thread, so why would you ever get non-main-thread event queue. So, I would rather indicate in the name how it is supposed to be called.

Attachment #8805589 - Attachment is obsolete: true
Attachment #8805697 - Flags: review+
The issue with the failure in comment 65 is:

1) A setTimeout() fires running js code from within the TaskQueue context
2) The js code calls showModalDialog() which spins the event loop
3) The showModalDialog() uses a setTimeout() to close itself
4) The nested setTimeout() never gets to run because the TaskQueue is still stuck on the runnable from (1).

I think the cleanest way to solve this is to make the nsITimer notify to the TaskQueue as my patches do now, but then to issue another runnable to the main thread to execute js code.  This means we have at most 2 runnables in the main thread event queue at once instead of just 1 runnable.  I don't love it, but it should be ok.

I have a hacked up version which passes the test with this locally.  I need to clean it up and do another full try run, though.
Actually, we could probably use a microtask or "tail dispatch" instead of a normal runnable dispatch here.  That would avoid any additional delay in running the timer.

Does that matter too much? But anyhow, please don't add new microtask usage right now. I have patches to make Promises to use microtasks but still working on to fix our devtools and browsers tests.
(only 1 failing devtool test left, browser_responsiveui_window_close.js, written by you! ;), and dozens of failing browser tests)

Hmm, now that I think. Running setTimeout code during microtask checkpoint would be quite surprising, and against the spec.

P1 Add the ThrottledEventQueue class. r=froydnj

So, after working on this bug for a while and talking to :billm I finally decided we need something slightly different from TaskQueue.

TaskQueue was designed for feeding a thread pool.  As such it wants to guarantee that no two events are running on the thread pool at once.  To that end it dispatches the next event only after all processing for the current event is done.

That works for thread pools, but is not quite right for a mechanism that dispatches to a single thread which may be its current thread.  In that world we need to handle cases where the event might spin the event loop.  If we only dispatch the next runnable after processing the current event then spinning the event loop from an event stalls the TaskQueue.

This class, in contrast, dispatches its next runnable *before* processing its current event.  This solves the event loop problem, but makes it not suitable for thread pool targets.

Writing a new class also allowed us to more easily work around some other idiosyncrasies in TaskQueue.  For example, this class is a simple nsIEventTarget which ensures it will work with the majority of the gecko tree.

Most of this patch is the same as the previous SelfClosingTaskQueueTarget class I previously had reviewed here.  I simply swapped out the TaskQueue for an nsEventQueue, a mutex, and a runnable.  (I believe the nsEventQueue is likely better optimized than TaskQueue's std::queue as well.)

-----------------------------------------------------------------

This patch modifies our timer code to dispatch runnables using the window's ThrottledEventQueue.

In addition, we also try to avoid running multiple callbacks in a single runnable.  Chrome windows, however, will still batch similar to how chrome windows bypass the throttling mechanism.

P5 Suspend a window if its main thread TaskQueue falls to far behind. r=smaug

Add a mechanism to apply back pressure to a window.  If we detect the ThrottledEventQueue is falling behind simply Suspend() the window.  We place a runnable at the end of the queue that will Resume() the window (when the queue is presumably clear).

Right now I trigger this from the timer code. As more subsystems start using the ThrottledEventQueue() they should also check for the back pressure condition.

This back pressure mechanism is important to avoid memory problems.  Throttling events by itself keeps the browser responsive, but moves the cpu problem to a memory problem by buffering events in the queue.  The back pressure is then a way to solve the memory problem by not filling the queue any more after it hits a threshold.

It feels wrong to suspend and yet expect the event queue to be processed.
I must be missing something here.
I would have expected us to throttle timeout handling in case the queue gets too long. Though, that wouldn't help with postMessage messages coming from workers. In that case worker should be throttled.
But looks like this doesn't anyhow deal with postMessages... so, I'm lost here.


Either I'm missing something here, or this adds some new odd state where we're suspended but yet process stuff.

So this doesn't guarantee at most kMaxSequentialTimeouts timeouts, if timeout == aTimeout isn't true for the first timeout.
Per IRC, remove kMaxSequentialTimeouts and just rely on 'timeout == aTimeout' and document that one or more, but usually just one timer ends up running.

It's not immediately obvious from the implementation, or from this comment, how this works: after all, a normal thread maintains its own queue of events and only runs ("dispatches") one at a time.

I was using it in my workers patch, but stopped doing so.  I can make it private for now and change the comments to indicate that people should depend on the self-closing behavior.

I think that could be a valid use case, too, but I would prefer that we make the API non-visible right now and let the person who needs it make a case for why it should be public later on.

Its the safest starting point given all documents in the TabGroup have sync access to each other in one form or another.  In the future we can create DocGroup specific queues that feed into the TabGroup queue.  Timers could then use those DocGroup queues.  Or we could even have window specific timer queues.

I guess I view this as a starting point with the expectation that we will continue to refine it.
