Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-3257) Make Randomwalk respect timeout (maxSec) more reliably
Date Fri, 24 Oct 2014 16:24:34 GMT
Josh Elser created ACCUMULO-3257:

             Summary: Make Randomwalk respect timeout (maxSec) more reliably
                 Key: ACCUMULO-3257
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: test
    Affects Versions: 1.6.1, 1.5.2
            Reporter: Josh Elser
            Assignee: Josh Elser
             Fix For: 1.6.2, 1.7.0

Randomwalk presently has the ability to specify a maximum execution time (in seconds) for
a module (e.g. Bulk.xml). The timeout is checked before the next node in the module is run,
but doesn't interrupt a long-running node. For extremely long test runs (hours to days) which
randomwalk is designed to perform, this is fine because running it for an extra hour when
you've been running it for 24+ already is without consequence.

However, trying to keep a well-bounded randomwalk run with respect to time is rather difficult,
especially when the tests queue up many operations for Accumulo to work through (intentionally
bashing Accumulo to try to make it fail). 

The concern in respecting a timeout is that verification steps may not be run and we might
miss failures that happened.
