We can't seem to be ale to access any build summaries or logs (via TBPL), which is kinda a big issue :\
Blair has closed mozilla-central and mozilla-inbound for this, maybe more.

the B for 'Win opt' on

The connection to tbpl is open stays for multiple minutes waiting for a response, until Firefox says 'The connection was reset'. 

AFAICT the RelEng parts of this are working fine. In we have

The log_url gets a 200 response and downloads fine. I think you'll need to poke at the tbpl logs to find out what's happening.

The DB seems to have a ton of queries that are locking a table, investigating further.

show full processlist from generic2.db.phx1

generic1.db.phx1 is disabled in Zeus, generic2 is locked up as shown above. This would probably be the primary cause of tbpl misbehaving at this time.
Generic1 was disabled in bug 703967 comment 39 aiui, if that helps at all?

It does, I wonder if the master/slave relationship was changed. If not, generic2 is probably replicating all the changes made to generic1, but then generic2 wouldn't be r/w...

I've paged the DBAs. Sheeri is probably on PTO, but mpressman should be around. This is clearly a DB related issue that's causing tbpl some pain.

As noted on IRC, the culprit is:

|   61367 | system user     |                   | tbpl_mozilla_org     | Connect     |  53247 | copy to tmp table                                              | OPTIMIZE TABLE runs_logs                                                                             |

Which has been running for 53247s, i.e., the better part of a day.  And which has locked the whole table to writes for that period.  Killing that statement should unlock everything.  (Shyam said he just killed it.)
From IRC :

[02:16:51] <AryehGregor> | fox2mike, |   61367 | system user     |                   | tbpl_mozilla_org     | Connect     |  53247 | copy to tmp table                                              | OPTIMIZE TABLE runs_logs                
[02:17:09]              * | Optimizer fox2mike: Carry on soldier. Optimizer out!
[02:17:10] < AryehGregor> | For InnoDB that's equivalent to ALTER TABLE.  Which takes out a write lock on the whole table.
[02:17:21] < AryehGregor> | For as long as it takes to rebuild the entire table and its indexes from scratch.
[02:17:26] < AryehGregor> | So, um, find what's doing that and stop it.  :)
[02:17:34] <    fox2mike> | system user
[02:17:41] < AryehGregor> | Possibly a cron job or something.
[02:17:42] <    fox2mike> | isnt' that internal mysql? 
[02:17:53] < AryehGregor> | Something has to be running the query, MySQL should not be running that itself.
[02:18:02] < AryehGregor> | Although hmm, you're right that it's odd.
[02:18:07] <    fox2mike> | yeah
[02:18:11] <    fox2mike> | if something else is
[02:18:13] <   Unfocused> | Optimizer: that code doesn't look wrong, fwiw
[02:18:15] <    fox2mike> | we'd have that user.
[02:18:20] <    fox2mike> | not system user
[02:20:14] <AryehGregor> | fox2mike, as a workaround, can you try killing the OPTIMIZE TABLE thread
[02:20:15] < AryehGregor> | ?
[02:27:30] <AryehGregor> | fox2mike, you won't corrupt it.  OPTIMIZE on InnoDB is the same as ALTER, which works by locking the table, making a copy, and then atomically overwriting the original table with the copy.  If you kill it, it 
                         will just delete the copy and unlock the original.

Therefore I ran 

mysql> kill 61367;

And things are coming back to normal. 

I'm leaving this open to see if we need to re-run this optimize or to see what caused this. Lowering prio.
Severity: critical → major
No longer depends on: 703967
If you do need to optimize things, I suggest you run OPTIMIZE LOCAL TABLE instead of regular OPTIMIZE TABLE, so it's not replicated.  I was told the setup is master-master, so you can optimize the passive master while the active master handles all load, then switch the masters and optimize the other one.  The fact that this was running as "system user" indicates (thanks, #mysql!) that it was replicated -- which was possibly unintentional, but not very good for performance either way.

Shyam is correct that the setup has changed from a master-master to a master-slave, although replication is still enabled on generic1, but in a state where it is stopped on generic1 due to an error. It also appears that read_only is on for generic1 making sure that writes cannot be done on generic1 basically presenting itself as a master-slave.

Also, comment 10 is correct in that a full table lock is acquired during an optimize/alter table setup. The table tbpl_mozilla_org.runs_logs is ~50GB on disk which is why it was taking so long.
Is this still being actively worked? I'm _sometimes_ able to get summary info on TBPL, but opening a full log always fails with "Timeout generating log." This is pretty terrible. :(

Is this always on the same log?

As I added to the TryServer TBPL status message, "Timeout generating log." is unfortunately cached in the DB, so logs imported at the time of the issue won't recover. You can either access the logs directly (link in TBPL status message) or retrigger.
Just tested opening a variety of full logs via TBPL and wfm, so suspect you are indeed trying a subset of the logs affected at the time of the issue.
Ah, I read that as meaning it was locally-cached and a shift-reload should clear it up!

Comment 18

just got an alert that this - if the table tbpl_mozilla_org.runs_logs needs to be *optimized* - I can tune the host to prioritize on that and it should run a little faster. Additionally, we are using a little bit of swap due to assigning all the system memory to the innodb_buffer_pool. This will require a daemon restart. We are going to want to change the tuning options anyway so when would be a good time to perform the restart and the maintenance?

Going to tag this along in this downtime, we'd like to finish running the killed optimize and Matt wants to adjust some more tuning options too.

alter is finished tbpl_mozilla_org.runs_logs is down from ~50GB to ~44GB. Additionally, innodb_buffer_pool was reduced from 12GB to 8GB.
