Searching the logs
There is a cgi script on ci.gbuild.org that will allow you to search the logs of the various hosts in gbuild. Here it is with all it's default options:
Which is the same as:
Those are executed in the script as such:
To see the last few lines of stan's (b0.gbuild.org) log file. Try this url:
These also work:
See the list of Hosts in the GBuild Network for the full list of valid bX values.
There are a bunch of ways to grep the log files for interesting info. The grep string is actually evaluated by egrep, so it's fairly powerful.
Here are some some useful examples for searching stan's log (he just coordinates and doesn't build):
If you use the host param to search a specific build agent that is doing actual build work, you might grep for these things:
You can even pass arguments to the grep command for doing things like context greps. This is really nice as it puts separators between each matching chunk.
To get more or less lines of output from a log file use the lines parameter as such:
A few examples combined with some greps:
You can cut off the first few characters of the lines to get shorter output as such:
That would cut off the first 19 characters and give you everything from 20 to the end of the line (-).
