Mozmill speed improvements after upgrading Python from 2.6 to 2.7.3

Yesterday we tried to upgrade our mozmill-ci cluster to the previously released Mozmill 2.0.1. Sadly we failed on the OS X 10.6 machines and had to revert this change. After some investigation I found out that incompatibility issues between Python 2.6 and 2.7.3 were causing this problem in mozprofile. Given the unclear status of Python 2.6 support in mozbase, and a talk in the #ateam IRC channel, I have been advised to upgrade those machines to Python 2.7.

Automation Development report – week 43/44 2013

Highlights To be able to continue our work to speed-up testruns in Mozmill CI Henrik upgraded our Mozmill-CI system to Jenkins 1.509.4. This step was necessary so that we can investigate the slowness in sending out emails for finished testruns, which could take up to 25 minutes! Beside that Henrik alsoContinue readingAutomation Development report – week 43/44 2013
