Description

8 years ago
test_value_storage.html failed on WINNT 5.2 mozilla-central unit test at 2009/03/08 17:32:04.  The previous test run was against the same revision (rev:ab3406e9752f (=)), so this looks intermittent.

Couldn't find any existing bugs covering this, and recent pushlog activity doesn't point to any changes that are obviously related.

To be clear, the failure was that the test timed out:

*** 66066 ERROR TEST-UNEXPECTED-FAIL | /tests/layout/style/test/test_value_storage.html | Test timed out.


This is one of the longer-running tests in the test suite, not because it waits for stuff, but just because it has a lot of stuff to test and takes a bit of time.  If the VM is being really slow, I could imagine that causing it to time out, but my inclination is that this is a VM issue rather than a problem with the test.

I'd note:  I've been thinking we should probably make the reftest and mochitest output print how long each test takes so that we can get an idea of the variability of the times on the VMs.

I think that's a good idea.  Flagging this with the [orange] whiteboard mark for tracking.

I got the same error just now on TryServer "Try linux hg unittest builder". (Outputting test duration sounds like a great idea)

make mochitest print time for each test

Not sure if tinderbox runs with --console-level=INFO or =DEBUG, though.

Looks like they run with INFO, so they don't get this output by default... need to either change its level or change the tinderboxes.

[Checked in: Comment 8]

This will actually show up.  I think this could be useful since, for tests that are timing out, it will give us a sense whether the normal duration of the test is actually long.

Let's call this R.Fixed, as there was a check-in.
