Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-19948) Since HBASE-19873, HBaseClassTestRule, Small/Medium/Large has different semantic
Date Wed, 07 Feb 2018 02:21:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-19948?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16354872#comment-16354872

Duo Zhang commented on HBASE-19948:

For the parallel running of different methods in the same class, I would say that this will
be a huge overhead for developers. For example, you are testing meta reassign, then two methods
in the same class may both try to move meta region, a parallel run will be impossible...

> I was confused on how SmallTest/MediumTest/LargeTest were being interpreted since HBASE-19873
where we added HBaseClassTestRule enforcing a ClassRule.
> Small/Medium/Large are defined up in the refguide here: http://hbase.apache.org/book.html#hbase.unittests
> E.g: "Small test cases are executed in a shared JVM and individual test cases should
run in 15 seconds or less..."
> I've always read the above as each method in a test suite/class should take 15 seconds
(see below for finding by [~appy] [1]).
> The old CategoryBasedTimeout annotation used to try and enforce a test method taking
only its designated category amount of time.
> The JUnit Timeout Rule talks about enforcing the timeout per test method: https://junit.org/junit4/javadoc/4.12/org/junit/rules/Timeout.html
> The above meant that you could have as many tests as you wanted in a class/suite and
it could run as along as you liked as along as each individual test stayed within its category-based
elapsed amount of time (and the whole suite completed inside the surefire fork timeout of
> Then came HBASE-19873 which addressed an awkward issue around accounting for time spent
in startup/shutdown -- i.e. time taken outside of a test method run -- and trying to have
a timeout that cuts in before the surefire fork one does. It ended up adding a ClassRule that
set a timeout on the whole test *suite/class* -- Good -- but the timeout set varies dependent
upon the test category. A suite/class with 60 small tests that each take a second to complete
now times out if you add one more test to the suite (61 seconds > 60 seconds timeout --
give or take vagaries of the platform you run the test on).
> This latter change I have trouble with. It changes how small/medium/large have classically
been understood. I think it will confuse too as now devs must do careful counting of test
methods per class; one fat one (i.e. 'large') is same as N small ones. Could we set a single
timeout on the whole test suite/class, one that was well less than the surefire fork kill
timeout of 900seconds but keep the old timeout on each method as we used to have with the
category-based annotation?
> (Am just looking for agreement that we have a problem here and that we want categories
to be per test method as it used be; how to do it doesn't look easy and is for later).
> 1. @appy pointed out that the actual SmallTest annotation says something other than what
is in the refguide: "Tag a test as 'small', meaning that the test class has the following
characteristics: ....ideally, last less than 15 seconds...." https://github.com/apache/hbase/blob/master/hbase-annotations/src/test/java/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/testclassification/SmallTests.java#L22
> 2. Here is code to show how timeout has changed now... previous the below would have
'run' without timing out.
> @Category({SmallTests.class})
> public class TestTimingOut {
>   @ClassRule
>   public static final HBaseClassTestRule CLASS_RULE =
>       HBaseClassTestRule.forClass(TestTimingOut.class);
>   @Test
>   public void oneTest() {
>     Threads.sleep(14000);
>   }
>   @Test
>   public void twoTest() {
>     Threads.sleep(14000);
>   }
>   @Test
>   public void threeTest() {
>     Threads.sleep(14000);
>   }
>   @Test
>   public void fourTest() {
>     Threads.sleep(14000);
>   }
>   @Test
>   public void fiveTest() {
>     Threads.sleep(14000);
>   }
> }
