Description IBM Bug Proxy 2004-11-18 17:39:05 EST
The following has be reported by IBM LTC:  
Benchmarking(ab) failed in RHR2 testing

Hardware Environment:
 Hostname: plinuxt8.cn.ibm.com
 Model:    p630
 HMC  :    plinuxt1.cn.ibm.com
Firmware Environment:
Software Environment:
 RHEL4 Beta2 isos.
 kernel : 2.6.9-1.648_EL
 rhr2 packages: rhr2-rhel4-0.9-14.9b.noarch.rpm

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install rhr2-rhel4-0.9-14.9b.noarch.rpm
2. setup rhr2 test env
3. do NETWORK sub-test by redhat-ready.
Actual Results:
 NETWORK test fail
Expected Results:
 NETWORK test pass

Additional Information:
[root@plinuxt8 14]# cat error.log 
12+0 records in
12+0 records out
apr_poll: The timeout specified has expired (70007)
[root@plinuxt8 14]# uname -r

 Please provide more infomation on setting the env. and how the test
was run.

What was the resolution for bug 11829? I can not get anything out of
that bug.
Was it a testcase or kernel issue?


NETWORK requires a remote machine to talk to.  On this remote machine
a user 
with ssh, apache bench, and mount permissions is required. The default
is "root"; this may be overridden in /etc/rhr/tests.conf. and also we
privode the remote machine to be contacted in /etc/rhr/tests.conf. 

Please do RHR configuration under directory /etc/rhr. 

is this recreatable? and how often?

Yes, this is recreatable. see following function in NETWORK script.

 service httpd start
 scp $httptestfile $RHRUSER@$SERVER:~/httptest.file
 ssh -l $RHRUSER -x $SERVER 
     "ab -c 128 -k -n 256 -p ~/httptest.file $ipaddr/httptest.file"

ab is a tool for benchmarking Apache (HTTP) server. 
option "-n" -- Number of requests to perform for the benchmarking session.

If we decrease number of requests, we can pass this benchmark. otherwise if we 
use default(256) number, it failed exactly.

Changing product.
Comment 5 James Laska 2004-12-15 13:34:34 EST
In discussion with rlandry, it appears this is a known issue (dealing with
apr_pool timeout issues).  Rob, are there any workarounds to the problem?
Comment 8 Rob Landry 2004-12-21 14:56:06 EST
still work issue; still effects 0.9-16-pre-rc1.1 package.

Recreate this bug with rhr2-rhel4-0.9-14.9i.noarch.rpm on rhel4-pre-rc2.

[root@romelp1 tests]# tail /var/log/rhr/tests/NETWORK/1/output.log 
Starting httpd: [  OK  ]
+ scp /var/www/html/httptest.file 'root@'
+ ssh -l root -x 'ab -c 128 -k -n 256 -p ~/httptest.file'

I'd like to move RHR bugs to Ship Issue as this will impact the RH 
certification of our power hardware.  Thanks.
