Mochitest needs to output " INFO Running foobar.test " to the log before it starts a given test Currently, if there is a test failure due to time out, we are not able to figure out what test has timed out exactly. This should be a minor change and a low hanging fruit to implement ASAP.
can you verify with releng that the tinderbox parsers would not be affected by this? I would make the change here: http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/testing/mochitest/tests/SimpleTest/TestRunner.js#147 Murali, is this the type of output you are interested in: INFO | tests/content/base/test/test_title.html | Starting Test.
Created attachment 443178 [details] [diff] [review] SimpleTest patch It turns out that mochitest can already do this, but this change turns this on by default.
Murali, whether or not this change gets checked in, you can cause mochitest to work as you want by adding --console-level=DEBUG to your command-line.
Jgriffin, thanks for the top. I am scraping results from Tinderbox and so, I would very much appreciate your patch getting approved :)
Actually this patch is bogus, this already works on m-c. Are you working on another branch and find this doesn't work? We may just need to port an existing fix to 1.9.3 et al.
