Titanic is designed primarily around the Mozilla build and test systems. The goal of Titanic is to be able to bisect holes in tests for revisions submitted. Long term, titanic is not only to be a standalone tool but also allow have hooks for other tools to plug in.
The main idea is to lock into revisions for tests that did not run. Titanic takes in a revision to begin the analysis from. Titanic trudges back from that point to the last revision for which the test was successfully run.
After being given this data, titanic will trudge through the revisions and find all the revisions for which the test did not successfully run. It will also determine if a build needs to be done for the revision and platform in question.
The code resides here: Github
You'll need to install the Python 'requests' package
You can do this by running the following command after you have installed 'pip'
pip install requests
To make use of the trigger commands that titanic provides you should add the following line in ~/.netrc
machine secure.pub.build.mozilla.org login <email> password <password>
In case you don't want to do that you can manually enter the LDAP username and password when prompted!
Installing the Server: Local Usage
Optional: In case you want to use the default server hosted by Mozilla and don't want to run your own small server then this section of the installation is optional.
To run the server you need to install 'flask'
pip install flask
If you'd like others have access to your server refer to README instructions at the Github link.
There are various ways to use Titanic.
Using the WebUI
You can use the WebUI at the following location to make new requests. If you choose to use this, then the server will take care of the rest and trigger the builds and jobs as needed.
New Requests: http://126.96.36.199:8314/new_request
You can look at the active jobs at the following location
Active Requests: http://188.8.131.52:8314/active_jobs
This is the easiest way to use Titanic and if you are unsure of what to do, this is probably the way to go.
You can use titanic.startBackfill API to queue jobs with the server.
A good example would be to look at the code in run.py You can use run.py using the following command.
python run.py -r 894b7372561d --bn 'Ubuntu VM 12.04 x64 mozilla-inbound debug test mochitest-2' -b 'mozilla-inbound'
Using Locally with WebUI
You can use Titanic locally as well with the web interface. For that ensure you have installed flask. Start up the server using the command.
You will then we able to create requests and active jobs at
New Requests: http://0.0.0.0:8314/new_request Active Requests: http://0.0.0.0:8314/active_jobs
However, to ensure that the requests get processed you need to run backfill.py in a cron job. A hack would be to run backfill.py in a while loop with some sleep thrown in.
You will also be able to use the scripts to queue jobs. All you need to do is change the server address to face the local server.
To use titanic in the standalone mode, you need to run the following command
python titanic.py -r [revision] -b [branch] --bn [buildername] -d [range]
For the example below we would like to know how to backfill mochitest-2 for Linux x64
python titanic.py -r 894b7372561d --bn 'Ubuntu VM 12.04 x64 mozilla-inbound debug test mochitest-2' -d 10 -b 'mozilla-inbound'
Titanic goes through the tests and figures no builds need to be made and the following tests need to be run! It prompts you the commands that can be used to run the tests.

If you are using Titanic locally and get an error code of 401 it most probably means that you possibly could have supplied incorrect credentials either in ~/.netrc or in backfill.py
Status Code: 401 -- Wrong username and password
