Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-11045) Introducing a tool to detect flaky tests of hadoop jenkins test job
Date Fri, 23 Jan 2015 06:56:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-11045?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14288874#comment-14288874

Tsuyoshi OZAWA commented on HADOOP-11045:

[~yzhangal] [~ajisakaa] do you know the version which this python script supports? We should
validate python version with sys.version_info.

> File this jira to introduce a tool to detect flaky tests of hadoop jenkins test jobs.
Certainly it can be adapted to projects other than hadoop.
> I developed the tool on top of some initial work [~tlipcon] did. We find it quite useful.
With Todd's agreement, I'd like to push it to upstream so all of us can share (thanks Todd
for the initial work and support). I hope you find the tool useful too.
> The idea is, when one has the need to see if the test failure s/he is seeing in a pre-build
jenkins run is flaky or not, s/he could run this tool to get a good idea. Also, if one wants
to look at the failure trend of a testcase in a given jenkins job, the tool can be used too.
I hope people find it useful.
> This tool is for hadoop contributors rather than hadoop users. Thanks [~tedyu] for the
advice to put to dev-support dir.
> Description of the tool:
> {code}
> #
> # Given a jenkins test job, this script examines all runs of the job done
> # within specified period of time (number of days prior to the execution
> # time of this script), and reports all failed tests.
> #
> # The output of this script includes a section for each run that has failed
> # tests, with each failed test name listed.
> #
> # More importantly, at the end, it outputs a summary section to list all failed
> # tests within all examined runs, and indicate how many runs a same test
> # failed, and sorted all failed tests by how many runs each test failed in.
> #
> # This way, when we see failed tests in PreCommit build, we can quickly tell 
> # whether a failed test is a new failure or it failed before, and it may just 
> # be a flaky test.
> #
> # Of course, to be 100% sure about the reason of a failed test, closer look 
> # at the failed test for the specific run is necessary.
> #
> {code}
> How to use the tool:
> {code}
> Usage: determine-flaky-tests-hadoop.py [options]
> Options:
>   -h, --help            show this help message and exit
>   -J JENKINS_URL, --jenkins-url=JENKINS_URL
>                         Jenkins URL
>   -j JOB_NAME, --job-name=JOB_NAME
>                         Job name to look at
>   -n NUM_PREV_DAYS, --num-days=NUM_PREV_DAYS
>                         Number of days to examine
> {code}
> Example command line:
> {code}
> ./determine-flaky-tests-hadoop.py -J https://builds.apache.org -j PreCommit-HDFS-Build
-n 2 
> {code}
