functional test 6 : use several queues (each with its own run-time data),
            use several RED configurations (such that each
configuration is sharte_red by multiple queues),
            increase average queue size to target level,
            dequeue all packets until queue is empty,
            confirm that average queue size is computed correctly
while queue is empty
            (this is a larger scale version of functional test 3)

queue          config         q avg before   q avg after    expected

This failure keeps on popping in the CI.
The bug report is one month old, with no reply.


I sent a proposal of removing red_autotest from the list executed by the CI.
https://patchwork.dpdk.org/project/dpdk/patch/20211027140458.2502-2-david.marchand@redhat.com/

It might be the best solution waiting for an analysis.

Hi David,

My understanding is, removing the test would require removing it from the
DPDK unit tests, we are just running the fast-tests suite for the unit
tests.  DPDK's unit test structure / framework does not allow removing or
customizing the suite of tests beyond the suites.

In the lab, Brandon has been looking into and trying different
configurations for running the tests within the containers along the lines
of the CPU pinning requirements that might be assumed by the unit tests. So
far, everything he has tried has still had the similar failures / issues.
We are still looking into it, so the bug is not sitting without action,
just no final resolution.

Cheers,
Lincoln

The mail I sent was not a comment for the investigation on UNH side.
The ask is for Cristian to have a look too.

Wojciech, Megha,

Are you able to take a look at why is the RED autotest failing, please?

Thanks,
Cristian

Hi,

I was trying to reproduce this test failure, but for me RED tests are passing. 
I was running the exact test command like the one described in Bug 826 - 'red_autotest' on the current main branch.

Here is an example when DPDK is build without RTE_SCHED_CMAN enabled, but with this flag set to true tests are also not failing.

root@silpixa00400629:~/wojtek/dpdk/build/app/test# ./dpdk-test '-l 0-15' --file-prefix=red_autotest
EAL: Detected CPU lcores: 96
EAL: Detected NUMA nodes: 2
EAL: Detected static linkage of DPDK
EAL: Multi-process socket /var/run/dpdk/red_autotest/mp_socket
EAL: Selected IOVA mode 'VA'
EAL: VFIO support initialized
TELEMETRY: No legacy callbacks, legacy socket not created
APP: HPET is not enabled, using TSC as default timer

Wojciech, Megha,

Are you able to take a look at why is the RED autotest failing, please?

Thanks,

The test is not always failing.
There are some failing conditions, please find them.
I think you should try in a container with more limited resources.

Hi Thomas,

This is not a fair request IMO. We want to avoid wasting everybody's time, including Wojciech's time. Can the bug originator provide the details on the setup to reproduce the failure, please? Thank you!

On a different point, we should probably tweak our autotests to differentiate between logical failures and those failures related to resources not being available, and flag the test result accordingly in the report. For example, if memory allocation fails, the test should be flagged as "Not enough resources" instead of simply "Failed". In the first case, the next step should be fixing the test setup, while in the second case the next step should be fixing the code. What do people think on this?

Regards,
Cristian

Hi All,

I'm not sure if it will help, but this is an example of a failing case in
the CI: https://lab.dpdk.org/results/dashboard/patchsets/20222/

The test is running within a docker container.  CI is set up to only allow
one active unit test at a time, so the host might be running compile jobs,
but not other unit tests.  This ensures there isn't "competition" for
resources like hugepages between two running unit test jobs.  The host is
actually a VM running on VMware vCenter, not a bare-metal host, the VM's
sole purpose is running the docker jobs.

The command to start the unit test run is pretty generic (script is below).

#!/bin/bash

####################################################
# $1 argument: extra arguments to send to meson test
####################################################

# Exit on first command failure
set -e

# Extract dpdk.tar.gz
tar xzfm dpdk.tar.gz

# Compile DPDK
cd dpdk
meson build --werror
ninja -C build install

# Unit test
cd build
meson test --suite fast-tests -t 60 $1

I think a starting point is to understand if the unit test expects or makes
assumptions on the system / environment.  If it has sole access to a CPU
core, minimum number of hugepages, etc.  If it would help, I can also give
you the DockerFile to build the container (note the RHEL images have to be
built on a licensed Redhat server, based on being able to install the
required packages).

Cheers,
Lincoln

In such case, the test must return TEST_SKIPPED.

I did a pass for cores count / specific hw requirements, some time ago.

applied across the board.  But places where the test is checking other
functionality, this might at least prevent some failures that are transient
(i.e. based on what the test could "get" from the system at that moment in
time).

Hello Wojciech,

I also recommend trying to run the test with around 4GB of RAM and 2GB of
hugepages to see if it fails. That is roughly the number of resources we
have per machine that is completely dedicated to unit tests. The amount of
RAM available can sometimes increase depending on how many jobs are running
per machine, but 4GB is the lowest it can go for the unit test job.

Thanks,
Brandon

Hi,

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to move the investigation much further.
I have been running those tests on machines with higher amount of RAM than 4GB, but with hugepages set there to 1GB and using the script provided by Lincoln.
For several runs red_autotest tests didn’t fail even once, not giving any clue what might be the cause of what’s happening on CI.

+Adding Marcin Danilewicz
To let you know, Marcin Danilewicz will be taking over my tasks, so for any further aspects please include or direct messages to him.

Best Regards,
Wojciech

Hi Marcin,

Attached is an Ubuntu 20.04 Dockerfile that we use in the lab for unit testing.

I don't think we run into the red_autotest failure too often, so it is
hard to debug. My guess is that the test will randomly fail when there
are a lot of processes running on the system, especially since we run
multiple tests per system in the lab.
In a typical worst-case scenario, we can see a machine performing 2 to
3 total compile/ABI tests along with a single unit test. We do
allocate a specific amount of resources (4GB RAM, 2 cores) to each
container, so that can be another factor that affects the frequency of
these failures.

If this issue seems too dependent on the current system load and other
situational factors, it might be good to think about running the
red_autotest separate from other tests in the lab so it does not have
to compete for resources.
Any thoughts on this?

Thanks,
Brandon

Hi Brandon,

I'll will look into this config file to see what I can do about it 😊


" a specific amount of resources (4GB RAM, 2 cores) to each container, so that can be another factor that affects the frequency of these failures.

If this issue seems too dependent on the current system load and other situational factors, it might be good to think about running the red_autotest separate from other tests in the lab so it does not have to compete for resources.
Any thoughts on this?"

CPU family might be important, from CPU features perspective.  Previously some throughput  tests I was executing using two different machines (different core families) to get correct (expected) results. Perhaps nothing has changed since then.

I'll let you know about my findings with that docker based installation.


Kind Regards,

Step 11/12 : COPY scripts /scripts
COPY failed: file not found in build context or excluded by .dockerignore: stat scripts: file does not exist

I'll start searching for this, but perhaps you can enlighten me what is that and where it may be found. If possible 😊


Kind Regards,
/Marcin

Subject: RE: [dpdk-dev] [Bug 826] red_autotest random failures

Hi Brandon,

I'll will look into this config file to see what I can do about it 😊


" a specific amount of resources (4GB RAM, 2 cores) to each container, so that can be another factor that affects the frequency of these failures.

If this issue seems too dependent on the current system load and other situational factors, it might be good to think about running the red_autotest separate from other tests in the lab so it does not have to compete for resources.
Any thoughts on this?"

CPU family might be important, from CPU features perspective.  Previously some throughput  tests I was executing using two different machines (different core families) to get correct (expected) results. Perhaps nothing has changed since then.

I'll let you know about my findings with that docker based installation.


Kind Regards,
/Marcin

Hi Marcin,

Sorry about that. You can probably remove that line from the
Dockerfile. It is used to copy short bash scripts that run meson/ninja
with DPDK.
For unit testing, we run a small bash script like this:

#!/bin/bash
tar xzfm dpdk.tar.gz
cd dpdk
meson build --werror
ninja -C build install
cd build
meson test --suite fast-tests -t 60

Thanks,
Brandon

Hi Brandon,

Sorry for late response, but I was busy in mean time. But after your mail well .. I've tried to run test dpdk from docker image. Few instances of images in parallel, enough to get machine fully loaded. But in turn, red_autotest never failed. 

Is it possible for you to share some additional details? About hardware used for testing, memory sizes, etc. To get some hint how to get these failures. I've seen other test failing constantly, depending on machine I was running other autotests. Maybe tests before red_autotest are changing hardware to the state where red_autotest is failing. Anyone tried to change autotests execution order? 

Also, I've don’t almost all to reproduce error and perhaps it is better to ignore that random error for now. It looks like you are able to successfully pass that test all the time, even when is failing from time to time. Right? If that is the true error, it will come out elsewhere.


Kind Regards,
/Marcin

Hi Marcin,

Unfortunately, I don't have any more details other than the ones we
talked about before. It is possible that the issue is not as common
now that we limited the number of compile jobs that can happen on each
machine at the same time.
We limited the amount of RAM that each job can use again so that the
systems are not getting a high load.

> Also, I've don’t almost all to reproduce error and perhaps it is better to ignore that random error for now. It looks like you are able to successfully pass that test all the time, even when is failing from time to time. Right? If that is the true error, it will come out elsewhere.

Yes, I think it's ok if you think the test is good for now. I haven't
seen it fail in a while, so it might just be due to the load we put on
the systems.
If the issue comes up, I can contact you again.

Thanks,
Brandon
