Description

Observation

When investigating #152560 we noticed that there are also a lot of restarted incomplete jobs like this one:
https://openqa.suse.de/tests/13062217

Reason: backend died: Error connecting to VNC server <unreal6.qe.nue2.suse.org:5901>: IO::Socket::INET: connect: Connection refused

Apparently there is an auto_clone_regex feature that will restart a job directly in openQA if the reason matches a certain regex.

But it doesn't make sense to restart the job thousands of times. I couldn't even find the original job (haven't tried the recursion feature yet).

In total I could find over 17k jobs with that error about unreal6.qe.nue2.suse.org since mid november.

A symptom of having such huge restart/clone-chains is:

Dec 04 14:39:53 openqa openqa-gru[6326]: Deep recursion on subroutine "OpenQA::Schema::Result::Jobs::related_scheduled_product_id" at /usr/share/openqa/script/../lib/OpenQA/Schema/Result/Jobs.pm line 2016.

Acceptance Criteria

  • AC1: Incomplete jobs are restarted up to n times at most (configurable)

Suggestions

  • Implement a cap/limit on the automatic restarting of incomplete jobs
  • Search for auto_clone_regex in the code repository to find the relevant starting point
  • Have a look into avoiding the deep recursion as well
