Need to be able to search based on a given build ID. Probably need to
expland this to do ranges of build IDs, not just a single one.

TODO: For some reason this doesn't work in the case where a product is not

Bumping this to M2.  This is important to gain information per build about MTBF -
Mean Time Between Failure.  It gives us insight on whether the build is improving overall or if its getting worse over time.  That trend helps us gauge the robustness of the product.

We are exploring other points of entry for this data, but so far this is the best.

Yeah, this has been brought up as important for the topcrash reports: limiting the query by build-date (buildid) gives much more accurate results.

It's easy enough to add to the search form.

Working on this.

This is pretty important now that we're about to release an RC2 of Firefox 3. We need a way to tell the difference between RC1 and RC2 on the top crash page, specifically. I can fake it if I can search by build ID though. That'd be more than good enough for now...
Target Milestone: 0.6 → 0.5
Committed support for this in revision 391. Once implemented, we should be able to access the page by visiting<buildId>.
What's the timeframe for getting this live?
Justin did you back out the aggregate stuff so its on a branch?  If so we can stage this today.
I did back out the aggregate stuff last week. Should be ready to go.

We need to add this to the top crasher listing as well for test builds.

From our meeting on Friday this would be a basic text field on the search page where the build could be manually entered.

as a range?  suggested in comment 0 - which would be very helpful 
eg.  >= 20081118

Is there further roadmap information on making this possible?   

The most recent accounting I find is TBD of  It would be useful today of course, but this will become much more important as Thunderbird goes into shorter development cycles -

The lack of this feature makes tracking topcrashes in nightlies (trunk or branch) nearly impossible; it's why I don't even bother, and only look at betas.

Patch adds a build_id field to the query form, updates the rules for a "too general" search to allow for either a prod/vers OR a build number, and adds build clause to search SQL.

warning: build is not an indexed column in the reports partitions.  In order for this to work reasonably in production, each partition will have to get this index.

Great catch. I'll run the SQL by you to create the index.

Here are the affected queries, with 2 permutations for analyzing the queries:
After some examination of 
  EXPLAIN (one of several queries involving the build table) ;
Decided two indexes are useful: One is new, one is an extension of an old index. 
Also found one redundant index.

Indexes cannot be ALTERED to have new columns, so both the redundant index and the extended one are dropped, then the new and extended ones are built.

Note that the first few partitions are not useful: Two are too small to matter, and the one for 2009-02-02 is both too large, and does not actually contain (only) data with date_processed that it should. Those three partitions are not indexed.

Drat. That should teach me to test a file that hasn't been written to disk, and then upload that file, still in its bad state. Sigh. But it probably won't.

buildid from one of my crashes pulled up a fine list. 20091220050304

2010011000 is a tad short?
(In reply to comment #25)
Yes, this is deployed and should be ready.
Is it possible to search with the initial substring of the build ID so we can search for all crashes for a specific day?
(In reply to comment #28)
Yes, reopening and setting to next release.

What is needed to close this: search on buildid prefix.  

Will our planned ES implementation Just Fix This?
Assignee: nobody → adrian
The current implementation of the new search API does search by build id. Searching into a range shouldn't be difficult to add, I just need to know if this build id is an integer, and we would have to change the ES mapping of this field so the range function is possible. 

If the build id is not an integer, the range would not be possible. We could search into the build date though, or use date range. 

This is only using ES, idk how hard it would be to implement that with the Postgres version.
Staying in 2.0, or going to 2.1?  I don't mind if it's not supported in the PG version.
Searching for one build id is ok, searching for ranges should be pushed to 2.1.
Searching by a range of build ids is pushed to 2.1.

First part of this problem is solved (being able to search for one or several build ids). Was part of Socorro 2.0. 

Second part of this bug (search by range of build ids) will be covered by bug 677434.
