Subject Re: Builds that have been failing for a while
Date Mon, 20 Sep 2010 18:43:52 GMT
Hi. Improving resource use is a great goal, I'm not sure it's that
clearcut though. I'm only familiar with ZK: note that these two jobs
are our patch queues, which only gets run when a user submits a patch
to a jira (only a few patches on each job over the last couple
Zookeeper-Patch-h1.grid.sp2.yahoo.net              | 2 mo 2 days
Zookeeper-Patch-h7.grid.sp2.yahoo.net              | 1 mo 16 days
this may fail for any number of reasons (patch won't apply, no tests,
findbug issues, etc...) Also notice that a patch gets sent to only 1
of 3 possible machines in some pseudo random fashion. So while one
patch job shows a recent success, the others do not. So to some extent
this is out of our hands.

We also see frequent failures from things that seem like infrastruture
issues, here's there console output from a couple recent failures:
WARNING: clock of the subversion server appears to be out of sync.
This can result in inconsistent check out behavior.

here's another:
Checking out http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/hadoop/zookeeper/trunk
ERROR: Failed to check out
org.tmatesoft.svn.core.SVNException: svn: unknown host
svn: OPTIONS request failed on '/repos/asf/hadoop/zookeeper/trunk'

that said, we recently had issues with our trunk that were causing
intermittent failures. We've been working on those and hopefully it
will help to clear these patch issues.
