Some release jobs did not re-trigger after HG failures


(Release Engineering :: Release Automation: Other, defect, P3)



(Not tracked)



(Reporter: armenzg, Unassigned)


(Whiteboard: [release-process-improvement][automation][mercurial][retry])

For instance:
* Linux64 had an hg timeout rather than an error and did not re-trigger [1]
* Linux64 xulrunner had a connection refused [2]
* Fennec source had not been clobbered from the previous run [3] (this was a re-triggered job)
* Android failed on mozharness multi-locale script [4]
* All 6 linux mobile repacks failed with a Bad Gateway [5]

All of these jobs required manual re-triggering rather than being retried automatically.

This is a very unique problem as HG was extremely bad but it shows that we have some steps going red rather than purple which in general is good to retry.

As I've mentioned elsewhere, hg clone jobs that *were* retrying automatically actually made things worse by sustaining and increasing the load. 

While I'd probably make an exception for release jobs, I'm more in favor of improving our hg infr to handle our required load.

Comment #0 talks about a bunch of different failures. I know that some of these are fixed, and that we're in a better place these days w.r.t. recovering from hg failures. Let's file any new issues that come up individually.
