Hello List,

The lvm test default timeout (--timeout) default value is 180.
But I met below condition when running testcase (in virtual machine):
```
make check_local T=shell/snapshot-merge.sh
    ... ...
###       passed: [ndev-vanilla] shell/snapshot-merge.sh 665
    ... ...
```

Obviously, the timeout doesn't work normally.
If I change below code, the timeout work as expected. (in lib/brick-shelltest.h)
```
         if ( select( nfds, &set, NULL, NULL, &wait ) > 0 ) {
             silent_start = end; /* something happened */
             io.sync( false );
         }
```

And after change the code, some testcase will become timeout, which may pass before.


The whole patch as below:

Hi


Can you please provide (compressed) output of:

'make check_local T=snapshot-merge.sh VERBOSE=1 LVM_TEST_AUX_TRACE=1'

Thanks

Hi


So your test seems to be very slow in 'mkfs.ext4':

[ 0:03] Creating journal (4096 blocks): done
[ 1:30] Writing superblocks and filesystem accounting information: done
....
[ 1:34] Creating journal (4096 blocks): done
[ 3:03] Writing superblocks and filesystem accounting information: done
....
[ 3:07] Creating journal (4096 blocks): done
[ 4:37] Writing superblocks and filesystem accounting information: done
....
[ 4:40] Creating journal (4096 blocks): done
[ 6:08] Writing superblocks and filesystem accounting information: done
....


This looks certainly seriously like a very slow (possibly doing TRIM) ??
Any idea why ?

The test seems to be using loop device created in backend file in your /tmp
(i.e.: losetup /dev/loop0 /tmp/LVMTEST11574.cJtNfnlPrj/test.img)

So any idea why your virtual machine is that slow with handling this case ?

One idea - aren't you using a storage with very slow discard processing
(i.e. ATM VDO) ?

You can setup different backend device or different location of test dir
(see 'make help' in test subdir)

Regards

Zdenek

Hello Zdenek,

Thank you for your feedback.
When I switched to ramdisk backend devices, the time consuming is about 9s.

I raised this topic for there may have a bug in timeout related codes,
not for why the snapshot-merge.sh costs too much time.

The code in below overwrite silent_start when select() successfully return.
```
           if ( select( nfds, &set, NULL, NULL, &wait ) > 0 ) {
               silent_start = end; /* something happened */ <====== this line!
               io.sync( false );
           }
```

Thanks.

Hi

This is intentional - the idea of this 'timeout' is - that during the timeout 
period there is no progress on output (i.e. for 180s there was nothing printed 
- which likely means something got locked - there is also secondary limitation
on number of output lines - so if something is doing endless printing loop,
it's also catched before it fill all disk spaces on testing machine... - 
hopefully this explains  'something happened'  comment.

In general we don't have strict 'limit' for test length in time - although if 
test takes 10 minutes - it's likely not what was intended - but we don't have 
that rule on individual test time as speed often largely depends on machine 
performance.

Hello Zdenek,

I got your point, thank you for your explanation.
