> Currently, if tests hang in hudson it can go hung for days until we manually kill it.
> The problem is that when a hang happens its probably serious, what we want to do (I think),
is:
> # time out the build.
> # ensure we have enough debugging information to hopefully fix any hang.
> So I think the ideal solution would be:
> # add a sysprop "-D" that LuceneTestCase respects, it could default to no timeout at
all (some value like zero).
> # when a timeout is set, LuceneTestCase spawns an additional timer thread for the test
class? method?
> # if the timeout is exceeded, LuceneTestCase dumps all thread/stack information, random
seed information to hopefully reproduce the hang, and fails the test.
> # nightly builds would pass some reasonable -D for each test.
> separately, I think we should have an "ant-level" timeout for the whole build, in case
it goes completely crazy (e.g. jvm completely hangs or something else), just as an additional
safety.
