Out of Memory

  • (decoder) OOM testing on JS engine and Firefox (~ 5 mins)
    • js shell: -A num
    • decoder's first tool: binary search to find the maximum useful value for -A, then try every value under it
    • decoder's second tool: instrument all fallible allocations with a callback that gets a backtrace. lets you simulate OOM for a specific caller. this even works for firefox!
      • currently testing one mochitest at a time and filing multiple bugs from it.
      • bugs found by this tool are easiest to reproduce if you have the tool
  • (jesse) We should increase use of infallible allocators, especially the default interfaces for hashes/strings/arrays
  • all bugs so far seem to be failures in propogating the allocation failure: OOM is ignored immediately; functions can fail but have return type void; long caller chains have a missing propogation leak
  • outside the JS engine, the crashes have all been safe crashes (guaranteed near null)
  • decoder fixed a few of the JS engine bugs for them

Updates (remove or add as you see fit)

JS (Christian Holler)

  • [decoder] OOM testing on JS engine and browser (details in second meeting half if interested)
  • [gkw/decoder] lots of work by us on fuzzing incremental GC and IonMonkey or thinking of ways to better test them

Web Developer Tools (Mark Goodwin)

Made a start on the GCLI stuff - we'll need a secreview on the "shell commands via GCLI" idea

- They don't actually want to *do* this, it's more a "what are the considerations around more powerful GCLI commands"

No movement on the review for debugger, yet
