    automation continuous integration marionette mozmill mozqa testing Mozilla Firefox Automation report week 47 48 2014 January 14 2015 Henrik Skupin 1 Comment In this post you can find an overview about the work happened in the Firefox Automation team during week 47 and 48 Highlights Most of the work during those two weeks made by myself were related to get Jenkins http jenkins ci org upgraded on our Mozmill CI systems to the most recent LTS version 1 580 1 This was a somewhat critical task given the huge number of issue as mentioned in my last Firefox Automation report On November 17th we were finally able to get all the code changes landed on our production machine after testing it for a couple of days on staging The upgrade was not that easy given that lots of code had to be touched and the new LTS release still showed some weird behavior when connecting slave nodes via JLNP As result we had to stop using this connection method in favor of the plain java command This change was actually not that bad because it s better to automate and doesn t bring up the connection warning dialog Surprisingly the huge HTTP session usage as reported by the Monitoring plugin was a problem introduced by this plugin itself So a simple upgrade to the latest plugin version solved this problem and we will no longer get an additional HTTP connection whenever a slave node connects and which never was released Once we had a total freeze of the machine because of that Another helpful improvement in Jenkins was the fix for a JUnit plugin bug which caused concurrent builds to hang until the former build in the queue has been finished This added a large pile of waiting time to our Mozmill test jobs which was very annoying for QA s release testing work especially for the update tests Since this upgrade the problem is gone and we can process builds a lot faster Beside the upgrade work I also noticed that one of the Jenkins plugins in use it s actually the XShell plugin failed to correctly kill the running application on the slave machine in case of an job is getting aborted The result of that is that following tests will fail on that machine until the not killed job has been finished I filed a Jenkins bug and did a temporary backout of the offending change in that plugin Individual Updates For more granular updates of each individual team member please visit our weekly

you can find an overview about the work happened in the Firefox Automation team during week 45 and 46 Highlights In our Mozmill CI environment we had a couple of frozen Windows machines which were running with 100 CPU load and 0MB of memory used Those values came from the vSphere client and didn t give us that much information Henrik checked the affected machines after a reboot and none of them had any suspicious entries in the event viewer either But he noticed that most of our VMs were running a very outdated version of the VMware tools So he upgraded all of them and activated the automatic install during a reboot Since then the problem is gone If you see something similar for your virtual machines make sure to check that used version Further work has been done for Mozmill CI So were finally able to get rid of all the traces for Firefox 24 0ESR since it is no longer supported Further we also setup our new Ubuntu 14 04 LTS machines in staging and production which will soon replace the old Ubuntu 12 04 LTS machines A list of the changes can be found here Beside all that Henrik has started to work on the next Jenkins v1 580 1 LTS version bump for the new and more stable release of Jenkins Lots of work might be necessary here Individual Updates For more granular updates of each individual team member please visit our weekly team etherpad for week 45 and week 46

simple local setup of the tool Along that we did the remaining deployment of latest code to our production instance Henrik also worked on the upgrade of Jenkins to latest LTS version 1 565 3 and we were able to push this upgrade to our staging instance for observation Further he got the Pulse Guardian support implemented Mozmill 2 0 9 and Mozmill Automation 2 0 9 have been released and if you

Mozilla Firefox Automation report week 41 42 2014 December 17 2014 Henrik Skupin Leave a comment In this post you can find an overview about the work happened in the Firefox Automation team during week 41 and 42 With the beginning of October we also have some minor changes in responsibilities of tasks While our team members from SoftVision mainly care about any kind of Mozmill tests related requests and related CI failures Henrik is doing all the rest including the framework and the maintenance of Mozmill CI Highlights With the support for all locales testing in Mozmill CI for any Firefox beta and final release Andreea finished her blacklist patch With that we can easily mark locales not to be tested and get rid of the long white list entries We spun up our first OS X 10 10 machine in our staging environment of Mozmill CI for testing the new OS version We hit a couple of issues especially some incompatibilities with mozrunner which need to be fixed first before we can get started in running our tests on 10 10 In the second week of October Teodor Druta joined the Softvision team and he will assist all the others with working on Mozmill tests But we also had to fight a lot with Flash crashes on our testing machines So we have seen about 23 crashes on Windows machines per day And that all with the regular release version of Flash which we re installed because of a crash we have seen before was fixed But the healthy period did resist long and we had to revert back to the debug version without the protect mode Lets see for how long we have to keep the debug version active Individual Updates For more granular updates of each individual team member please visit our weekly team etherpad for week 41 and week 42 Meeting Details If you are interested in

Automation team during week 39 and 40 Highlights One of our goals for last quarter was to get locale testing enabled in Mozmill CI for each and every supported locale of Firefox beta and release builds So Cosmin investigated the timing and other possible side effects which could happen when you test about 90 locales across all platforms The biggest change we had to do was for the retention policy of logs from executed builds due to disk space issues Here we not only delete the logs after a maximum amount of builds but also after 3 full days now That gives us enough time for investigation of test failures Once that was done we were able to enable the remaining 60 locales For details of all the changes necessary you can have a look at the mozmill ci pushlog During those two weeks Henrik spent his time on finalizing the Mozmill update tests to support the new signed builds on OS X Once that was done he also released the new mozmill automation 2 0 8 1 package

    which will run Mozmill tests once a day against nightly builds of Namoroka and Shiretoko on OS X Linux and Windows Further we wanted to use it as our machine to run Mozmill tests against release candidates and to verify the update channels No sooner said than done Directly after the Christmas holidays my colleague Al ordered a Mac Mini and did the initial setup routine He handed me over a system with 3 partitions One for OS X 10 5 another one for OS X 10 6 and a third partition which is used for all the virtual machines and other necessary data While talking about virtual machines the following will be in use Ubuntu 9 10 Windows 2000 Windows XP Windows Vista and Windows 7 My first task was to setup the initial Mozmill environment for all those operating systems There is a nice documentation up on MDC which helps to make the task as easy as possible To be able to share builds scripts and other stuff between the vms each of those has the shared folders feature enabled and a virtual drive connected to the data partition For the daily test runs against en US nightly builds of Firefox 3 6 x Namoroka and Firefox 3 5 x Shiretoko we decided to have OS X 10 5 Ubuntu 9 10 and Windows XP always open With the help of the crontab on Linux and OS X and the scheduled tasks on Windows we are able to start the tests at the same time each day Given by the availability of the update snippets we have chosen 8am PDT for now I m not sure if that will work every day due to some slightly time shifts but it s still something we have to improve To run all the available tests I have written a wrapper script in Python which runs each of the different tests sequentially This script will be used from any of the above mentioned vms The order how the tests are run is given by Software Update tests With the software update tests we check that nightly updates can be downloaded and applied via the software update dialog Also we make sure to run the successive Mozmill tests against the most recent nightly build Normal tests Those tests cover most of our implemented tests for the Smoketests BFT and FFT test group which do not require a restart of the browser Restart tests The restart tests cover the remaining tests and are able to even test complex paths which require a restart of the browser Now someone may ask how do we track the results There is no one sitting on that machine That s correct Therefor we use the rich feature set of Mozmill 1 4 which is able to send the results as a JSON object to any CouchDB server For our usage inside QA such a server has been setup a while ago and is also used by our
