Description of problem:
I have experienced multiple issues with watchdog here:
The behavior is following, if a test is timeouting and test maximum duration is reached, then the test might end up with Warn status and all tests which are scheduled after this test also timeout, BUT with the watchdog time of the first timeouted test (2010-07-26 12:38:28).
It is clealy visible here: https://beaker.engineering.redhat.com/jobs/8851
Moreover there is possibility that test timeouts with a lot of "./" lines in WebUI which is quite interesting behavior and I tend to claim that this is invalid test watchdog trigger.
Let's closely look at
The test is set to use 1h watchdog timeout, but as you can see in the job/recipe it took 4:45:50 insted of 1:00:00 +- a minute.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
0.5.50 (WebUI version)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. look at https://beaker.engineering.redhat.com/jobs/8851 or clone that test
2. see the timeouted test after first timeouting test
Beaker test watchdog is not behaving properly which results in test data loss.
Beaker test watchdog should behave properly.
The long timeout is caused by harness allowing longer timeout to submit results to LC. This is to avoid watchdog killing the job when the task is already finished and harness is waiting for LC to submit results.
