nailgun connect timeout error message fix #7437

commented Mar 25, 2019


We previously had an untested code path (NailgunExecutor._await_socket()) which constructed a NailgunClient.NailgunError upon a timeout when connecting to a started nailgun subprocess. The NailgunError constructor was changed a while ago to create its own error message, and instead accept arguments such as the pid and pgrp in its constructor, but this untested code path hadn't been updated to provide those arguments. This caused a strange error when this unlikely timeout occurred while compiling zinc in an osx laptop environment.


  • Raise a self.InitialNailgunConnectTimedOut and convert it into a self.Error in a try/except instead of raising a NailgunError.
  • Add testing for nailgun connection timeouts.
  • Create a separate option --nailgun-subprocess-startup-timeout to cover the time to wait for the nailgun subprocess to start up, using --nailgun-timeout-seconds to cover the time to wait after that for the nailgun subprocess to begin producing output.


Another code path in our nailgun interactions is tested, and a bug in that code path is fixed.

except (socket.error, NailgunProtocol.ProtocolError) as e:
raise self._make_nailgun_error(e)

It looks like the method body could be inlined again to preserve the traceback?

(that seems like a particular nonsensical pythonism)
