Subject [jira] Created: (STDCXX-536) allow thread safety tests to time out without failing
Date Sat, 25 Aug 2007 01:45:30 GMT
allow thread safety tests to time out without failing

                 Key: STDCXX-536
             Project: C++ Standard Library
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Tests
    Affects Versions: trunk
            Reporter: Martin Sebor

The newly added thread safety tests (and possibly some of the existing ones) tend to run for
a long time, consuming a lot of CPU cycles, and sometimes even failing due to a timeout (currently
300 seconds in nightly builds). It would be useful to provide a mechanism such as a command
line option whereby the tests' runtime could be limited without necessarily causing them to
fail when the amount of time is exceeded. One way to do it would be for each test to set an
alarm in response to this command line option and in handler for the alarm set a flag that
each thread would check at each iteration of its loop to see if it should break.
