Last Weeks Action Items

  • [DONE] [Henrik] follow up on bug 1083166 for network timeouts
    • I triggered the networking team and they will work with Mark to get some more details
      • Talked to networking team for more info on setting up another pulse translator
  • [NEW] [Andreea] Check in-qa-testsuite flags for proxy/network tests
    • Didn't had time for these yet, will start this week as Florin mentioned they don't cover these so would be good to have
  • [DONE] [Mihaela] Check with the team from AWSY if they have detected our endurance memory increased consumption
    • they had an increase but a few days earlier
    • could not reproduce the increase locally, on staging nor on production
      • talked to dev team they had memory increase on nov the 7th
      • it may be related to the migration of mozmill automation 2.0.8 to 2.0.9, see if it's a regression
      • it's possible to be an increase of memory after flash update, try to downgrade flash locally, flash seems to be the same version
  • [NEW] [Henrik] goals wiki page
    • added to own etherpad
  • [DONE] [Henrik] check if we can shutdown the old tps system
    • It's hard to see if there are broken runs with failures given that we do not really log locally on the machine. Also the mailing list for failures is the same as the general one, so I do not see why emails should not come through. Further we would have to implement Pulse Guardian, which is not a good investment of our time
    • get reports from tps, cross-check with revisions from mozilla-central
    • checked mailing list for failures, no failures in the last three months, since the new system


  • [Henrik] Mozmill CI got updates: (dummy nodes, Jenkins 1.580.1, xshell, pulse guardian, Ubuntu 14.04)
    • live on production
      • issue with high memory usage on jenkins (staging), we should run the garbage collector manually periodically
      • http session issue is not observed anymore
    • we updated all machines today => with the change from mm-ci-master to mm-ci-production all testruns were failing to properly finish
  • [SV] Last week in the project for Andrei and we'd like to introduce Daniela, she's been in ramp-up for a while now
    • The Softvision Desktop Automation Team will be out office next monday, December the 1st due to National Day holiday in Romania


  • List of blockers (
    • [07/10] - bug 735184 - RFE: Create Pulse notifications for update channel activities (maybe in Q4)
    • [09/01] - bug 1038646 - Broken package dependencies when installing OpenJDK 7 on Ubuntu 12.04 machines (maybe wontfix because we want to get rid of it)
      • Most likely we'll rely on openjdk, will be installed by default on linux
      • We don't use java on our mozmill tests, so we don't need oracle versions
    • [09/03] - bug 997230 - Setup Mac Mini for DeployStudio needed by PuppetAgain (needs action RelOps)
    • [10/29] - bug 917204 - Add open squid proxy to for testing purposes (waiting setting up network ACLs)
      • We got a squid proxy, needs testing by adding the squid proxy to the proxy list in firefox and test if can be opened for http/https
    • [10/29] - bug 1066493 - TPS failure: Error: signIn() failed with: "error.sync.reason.serverMaintenance" (depends on bug 1057892)
      • Waiting for the push on production for the database, hopefully by today/tomorrow will be landed and the failures will be fixed
    • [11/05] - bug 1083166 - [SCL3] Pulse and maybe other connections are timing out in irregular intervals (maybe also causing test failures when loading web pages)
    • [11/07] - bug 1094272 - [pulsetranslator] With SSL enabled publishing of normalized messages get stuck
      • Stopped to publish messages by its own, and it seemed fine, except for some failure today.
    • [11/11] - bug 1096367 - move aurora updates onto cdn temporarily
      • We might need to find a solution here, it happened only once, in one day, but it might happen again
