scap eats underlying commands output (such as maintenance script stacktrace)
Open, NormalPublic


On beta cluster we have a log configuration error (T97138) causing maintenance scripts to spurts a PHP stracktrace.

The beta-scap-eqiad jenkins job runs scap and abort when running mergeMessageFileList.php (T96920) but the php script trace isn't shown:

Running that maintenance script manually shows the PHP trace from T97138

greg set Security to None.

it's got "--output" to a temp file - is the file empty?

The stdout/stderr of the proc should be going to the logger at debug level. Is jenkins running with the --verbose flag? I can't remember if I got that to pass through to everything or not yet.

as far as I could tell it should be working, verbose flag not necessary... but for some reason it does seem to eat the output - note I closely examined the scap code and the called php code - I could not see anything that would cause the output to get eaten... The only part I didn't examine thoroughly is the debug logger - I don't know how that is set up or whether it really works - maybe the logger is eating the output?

The logger is setup by scap.log.setup_loggers() which is called by scap.cli.Application._setup_loggers(). The default console log level is INFO unless --verbose is passed to the app. This is why I asked if Jenkins was passing --verbose.

Ok that explains a lot. For some reason I was thinking about passing --verbose to the subcommand, not to scap it's self. Sorry for being dense. I'll try to dig in to it further.

Scap added much better logging. Should we backport that stuff to the rest of scap or just wait for mediawiki to be deployed with scap3?
