Groups - Dynagroups: "Next Calculation Time" does not properly increment
Last modified: 2013-09-02 03:25:20 EDT
Description of problem:
In the Dynagroup Manager view, the "Last Calculation Time" and "Next Calculation Time" are the same when a dynagroup has scheduled recalculations
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new dynagroup ("CalcBug"). Use an expression like
resource.type.plugin = Platforms
resource.type.name = Linux
2. Set the Calculation Interval to "1"; save
3. Wait some time to guarantee that the recalc has taken place at least once
3. Inventory > Dynagroup Manager. View values for your "CalcBug" dynagroup
"Last Calculation Time" and "Next Calculation Time" values are the same
"Next Calculation Time" ought to be incremented by Calculation Interval or something.

screenshot showing incorrect "Next Calculation Time"
If user keeps reloading page, it will be seen that the "Last calc" is continually updated -- and "next calc" is updated to the same. i've never managed to catch it being any different than the "last calc". Might be interesting to test and see if it happens in time periods longer than 1 min.
Likewise, if user changes it to a longer time period, it does not (at least immediately change) -- it remains the same as Last Calc
First, the time period you specify is in milliseconds. So providing a value of "1" would probably not be what you want - this could account for why the times look the same, because the time format isn't granular enough to see a 1ms time difference (its in the format of HH:MM:SS, so its only down to the second, not the millisecond).
Recently, the spinner for the time value is labeled to make it explicit the value is in ms and the spinner increments by 60000 (every 1 minute, in millis).
I just tried this and it looks like its working, the next time and last time columns appear correct.
verified. time is in milliseconds ... and increments in 1 minute intervals correctly, e.g. 600000, 120000, .... Last Calculation and Next Calculation values changed correctly.
Bulk closing of issues that were VERIFIED, had no target release and where the status changed more than a year ago.
