Using git bisect with Ceph


When investingating a a problem using the latest Ceph sources, it was discovered that the problem only shows in the master branch and appeared after the v0.85 tag. The following script reproduces the problem and logs the result:

$ cat #!/bin/bash cd src log=$(git describe) echo $log.log make -j4 >& $log.log rm -fr dev out ; mkdir -p dev MDS=1 MON=1 OSD=3 timeout 120 ./ \ -o 'paxos propose interval = 0.01' \ -n -l mon osd mds >> $log.log 2>&1 status=$? ./ exit $status

It can be used with git bisect to find the revision in which it first appeared.

$ git bisect start # initialize the search $ git bad origin/master # the problem happens $ git good tags/v0.85 # the problem does not happen $ git bisect run # binary search in tags/v0.85..origin/master running v0.85-679-g8d3f135.log Bisecting: 339 revisions left to test after this (roughly 8 steps) [ef006ae] Merge pull request #2658 from athanatos/wip-9625 running v0.86-27-gef006ae.log Bisecting: 169 revisions left to test after this (roughly 7 steps) [fa0bd06] ceph-disk: bootstrap-osd keyring ignores --statedir running v0.85-1116-gfa0bd06.log ... v0.86-263-g5f6589c.log d15ecafea4 is the first bad commit commit d15eca Author: John Spray Date: Fri Sep 26 17:24:12 2014 +0100 vstart: create fewer pgs for fs pools :040000 040000 f42a324a8 aa64cdc1ed3 M src bisect run success
