Description Satyabrata Maitra 2007-05-29 13:33:38 UTC
Description of problem:
Its showing traceback error when run the command hts certify --test network
in ia64 stable system for hardware testing. Error log is given below.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
HTS is going to be run on "RHEL5 Server".

  1. download the latest HTS, dt, lmbench, stress package from porkchop:

  2. install HTS on both "test machine" -- stable system(ia64) and "server
machine" -- Any other system.
      # rpm -ivh hts-5.0-XX.noarch.rpm
  3. start HTS server daemon on "server machine":
      # hts server start

  4. make the "plan" on "test machine":
      # hts plan --server X.X.X.X  // "X.X.X.X" is the IP addr of "server
                                   //  machine"

  5. run all "planned" tests on "test machine":
      # hts print                  // list all planned tests, then run
                                   // each of them as following
  6. Run Command : hts certify --test network
Actual results:

traceback error file

Comment 2 Greg Nichols 2007-05-30 14:47:04 UTC
Please attach /var/hts/results.xml

Also, were there any other errors before the above steps were carried out?  It
looks as though a number of test runs were attempted before the attached error.

After saving an attaching results.xml here, try running "hts clean", then
re-running the steps.

Hi Greg

Even if I found results.xml in other systems, but in ia64, there is no such
file I found really! But I attampted and completed tests, that I know. Does it
mean the results are not saving? what to do next? pls inform. Btw, I am doing
as u said, "hts clean" first and then re-run the tests! Lets see what it
stores! Anyway, there is another rpm that stored into /var/hts directory. I am
attaching this one for now. pls have a look and suggest the next!

Comment 4 Satyabrata Maitra 2007-06-05 11:09:25 UTC
Hi Greg
I retested the hts5 in ia64 once again following ur steps.
This time network and other tests PASSED. But the results.xml i am finding nowhere.
I executed the command - hts submit.
I think it should create the results.xml but its not creating. Please see the
following command line messages when executed the command hts submit.

.qa.[root@ia64-5Server hts]# hts submit

Old RPM, attached b4 too

The files found in /var/hts is attached here. Pls have a look.

Comment 10 Greg Nichols 2007-06-19 15:54:23 UTC
The "hts submit" command removes /var/log/results.xml, so that's why you're
having trouble locating it.

Do I understand correctly that after running "hts clean", your re-test was


Comment 11 Greg Nichols 2007-06-19 15:54:56 UTC
Sorry, I meant /var/hts/results.xml.

results.xml for ia64 network bug

I found this file in /var/hts once the network test finished and this time its
PASS! Strange!

Comment 13 Greg Nichols 2007-06-28 13:33:58 UTC
Is the /var filesystem, or any other file system NFS mounted?

Comment 14 Satyabrata Maitra 2007-07-02 07:42:52 UTC

I found this .xml file for ia64 in /var/hts only, no other NFS mounted file
system I really dnt know!

Comment 15 YangKun 2007-07-03 07:51:14 UTC
Hi Satyabrata,

three ".xml" files will be located in "/var/hts/" on all ARCHes, not only the
ia64 ARCH.

There are three "places" which hold HTS related "output" files:
    o /var/hts/        -- stores "plan.xml", "config.xml", "results.xml" and the
result rpm.
    o /var/log/hts/    -- stores intermediate running logs
    o /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/noarch/    -- stores result rpms

Here's how the HTS works:
  1) when you run "hts plan", the directory "/var/hts/" will be created if it is
not exist yet, and two files(plan.xml and config.xml) will be created and will
be located in /var/hts/ ;
  2) once you run some tests(e.g. "hts certify --test core"), the intermediate
output logs will be stored in "/var/log/hts/*", if the tests finished running
correctly(either PASS or FAIL or ABORT), then a file "/var/hts/results.xml" will
be created(if it's not exist yet) and the test logs will be logged into this
file as well.
  3) when you run "hts submit", the result rpm will be generated into
/usr/src/redhat/RPMS/noarch/ first and then be copied to /var/hts/ , once the
result rpm been generated successfully, the file "/var/hts/results.xml" and all
intermediate output logs under /var/log/hts/ will be removed.

Could you please double check if your issue still exists ?  If not, we will
close this bug.


Comment 16 Satyabrata Maitra 2007-07-03 12:22:26 UTC
hi Greg

Ya, I followed the procrdure u suggested that day. And I get success as the last
test for hts-network PASSED. I first did hts-clean, then hts-plan and then
performed the particular test. and before doing hts-submit, i collected the
results.xml file for ia64 system.

I followed the same process for i386 too. But it given me traceback error last time.

Anyway, I will then check for i386 once again. Actually i attempted to check
today, but i386-5Server is not responding today, prolly shutdown. I will check
tomorrow again! Once finished, I will inform u. Thanx! :)

Comment 18 Satyabrata Maitra 2007-07-13 11:49:34 UTC
Tested it once again with ia64 system.

Network testing for ia64 system having no issue, Its PASS. And Final for now.

But i386 stable system for RHEL5-Server still down.

> But i386 stable system for RHEL5-Server still down.

Could you please file a bug against this ? Or there is already a bug against this ?


Comment 20 Satyabrata Maitra 2007-07-18 10:19:10 UTC
I retested this bug on i386 stable system - i386-5Server.lab.boston.redhat.com,
following the proper steps.

This time The Test PASS.

Please resolve this bug as its PASS.
