Because it's DST day, I suspect a bit of timezone oopsie. We've got a couple hundred pending jobs for linux64 test slaves (b2g emulator and linux64 desktop) going back to 20:07, but there are zero jobs running on them.

All trees except Try are closed.
Where by "Linux64 test slaves," since Questions Will Be Asked, I mean the linux64 AWS slaves that run everything except debug browser-chrome and talos, not the ubuntu_hw slaves that do talos or the doddering old fedora slaves that do debug browser-chrome, since both of those pools are still alive.

The pending build list goes back to just after 20:00 PST (20:07:10, to be exact), which does indeed make this a little suspicious.  But I have no idea what particular timezone oopsie would happen at that hour.
Flags: needinfo?
The problem cleared itself about 3:45 Pacific, trees reopened at 04:14.

Possibly related to bug 978971. Also may have been slaves connected to masters but work not being taken up. Hard to tell as I was looking as more slaves came online; going to need some serious log analysis to figure it out.
Severity: blocker → critical

I haven't seen any "bad" condition since I landed bug 978971. This is expected during weekends, I believe. I don't think it helped.

BTW, ~10 days ago we changed our algorithm and instead of starting EC2 instances for every single pending request, we reduce this amount by 10% of running instances. http://hg.mozilla.org/build/cloud-tools/rev/057aaeff75d2#l2.379

This may affect our pending queue esp we we have spikes and have a lot of running instances.
Flags: needinfo?(rail)
We seem to have more of a problem starting up enough instances when we're otherwise idle...That makes me think maybe a few things could be wrong:

- builders not listed in aws_watch_pending are stealing jobs (e.g. l10n)
- spot requests aren't being fulfilled (bug 978971)
- spot machines are coming online, but aren't able to do work for some reason
To preserve some history, I've copied master/twistd.log* to ~/b981368/ on the 9 tests1-linux masters.
We definitely don't match on a few type of jobs, some 1319 in total
* b2g_emulator_vm.* (479), b2g_ubuntu64_vm (73), b2g_ubuntu32_vm (49)
* Android nightly and non-unified builds (and upcoming non-profiling)

The build system branch causes all sorts of fun because it adds another 'build' in the builder names, eg 'Android 2.2 Armv6 Tegra build-system opt test crashtest'. If that was still active we'd be starting EC2 instances for Tegra jobs.

I haven't added spidermonkey, hazard, TB, l10n or release builds, on the basis I don't know if we really want to or not. And frankly the regexp are getting awkward already.

See http://people.mozilla.org/~nthomas/bug981368/ for script and inputs to work this out. The json comes from a side project that dumps information out of masters.

Yuck - it's both sadfaces making (and also perversely slightly satisfying) that there aren't workarounds within our automation for handling the same problems that things like TBPL & treeherder have to deal with - due to not having separated fields for job metadata. We really need to replace the buildername (or at least supplement it) with individual properties available throughout automation, so we don't have to rely on fragile regex :-(
morphing summary into determining reason for outage, and initial remediation, since that is where the comments have gone.

Another hour-long gap in starting any tonight, starting around the same time, which conveniently ended while I was closing trees.
To document it, aws watch pending reported 835 currently running, which :philor thinks was incorrect.

And right before c#13 happened for that matter:

If there were in any sense "835 running" it was not in the sense of https://secure.pub.build.mozilla.org/buildapi/running - not only is that probably 100 times the number that were visibly running, I'd bet it's actually more than the total number of jobs of all sorts on all platforms that were running at the time.
"running" means how many machines are running

pretty sure this is another case of priortizeBuilders sucking:

Made a few changes to watch_pending:

http://hg.mozilla.org/build/cloud-tools/rev/8b2961b13630 - factor in freshly started instances to prevent us from overshooting due to bootup -> taking jobs lag

http://hg.mozilla.org/build/cloud-tools/rev/0ce75ee78ae7 - keep # running separate for spot and ondemand so we actually start ondemand if we need to (due to retries)
