Obtained new Micro SDHC cards (SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-I cards) which match those in use for Panda testing and installed in the following phones which use external cards:
Any performance or reliability improvement in these phones in the next round of tests should be attributable to the new sdcards.
The shipment of phones from Haxxor Canada to Haxxor Virginia is being held up in due to an import clearance hold since Friday October 18. I’m not sure what is the cause for the delay but it may be due to a backlog caused by the U.S. Government “shutdown” this month. Hopefully the phones will be released soon.
- samsung-gs3-1, samsung-gs3-2 hung on Mochitest-Canvas requiring a battery reset.
- droid-pro-1, nexus-s-2 hung on Mochitest-Canvas requiring a reboot
- nexus-one-2 suffered another sdcard failure
Update: 10:00AM PT
nexus-s-2 continues to hang running the Mochitest-Canvas tests. After 3810 Passed, 121 Failed and 105 Todo tests, while executing /tests/content/canvas/test/test_drawImage_edge_cases.html, the Mochitest runner’s iframe reports “The proxy server is refusing connections”.
samsung-gs3-1 hung the entire device on Mochitest-Canvas again requiring a battery reset. The device appears to be stuck and overheating. Will allow it to “rest” for a bit before returning to service.
Update: 2:00PM PT
samsung-gs3-2 appears to be stuck and overheating and draining the battery. Will allow it to “rest” for a bit before returning to service.
After nexus-one-2 was unable to communicate its status after the sdcard change and reboot, I restarted the autophone server. There appears to be a latent bug related to pulse message timeouts which appears to disconnect some devices.
While I was traveling last week to the Automation and Tools work week, droid-pro-1, nexus-s-2 and samsung-gs3-1 had issues requiring reboots and/or battery resets. The phones are back up and attempting to work through their backlogs.
Bug 870876 – Create a remote mozrunner class for b2g caused a run-time error with the older version of mozbase the autophone server was using which caused the Mochitest-Canvas tests to fail with ImportError: cannot import name DEFAULT_PORTS. Updating mozbase on the server fixed the issue on Wednesday 2013-08-07.
Mochitest-Canvas with SkiaGL
Bug 902462 – Enable SkiaGL on all Android GPUs, not just NVIDIA landed Thu Aug 8 04:13:48 2013 PDT. Need to investigate failures before and after landing to determine the effect of enabling SkiaGL. Resolving Bug 893611 – Enable Autophone Mochitest Canvas tests with SkiaGL as fixed.
