Tests are making the installation to loop forever

See original GitHub issue

When I tried to install the project using maven 3.6 with the command mvn install at some point the installation kind of “stopped” without proceeding for about 7 hours. After that I stopped it manually. When providing the clean install with no tests - mvn clean install -DskipTests=true it was installed successfully.

Thanks @xxLestadxx. We’ve seen a few reports from other sources for the same issue, and with the same file handle limit. I recreated inside a Vagrant VM, with that same limit, and the test took 20 minutes to run. Although it was a VM, it is still quite a powerful machine, so machines with lower specs will take even longer.

I opened a pull request to bypass the test for high limits. Our local development and the Travis CI limit as both lower than the bypass requisite, so we still make sure the coverage is kept.

Thanks for reporting!

Ok, thanks. I see this thread as well on Slack:

Looking at the CmdLineExecutorTest, there is one possible culprit: directoryStoreAndSqliteWithLotsOfFilesWorks. This test reads/writes LOTS of files, so it may be slow on systems with slow read/write speeds. Still, I would not have expected it to stall for 7 hours. I’ll see if we can reduce the strain the the test causes (if it is the cause).
