#12247 new Bug Report - General

recordings slow to start for 1 minute.

Reported by: blm-ubunet@… Owned by: JYA
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - Video Playback Version: Master Head
Severity: low Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


For precisely one minute after recordings end, attempts to playback (that same recording) succeed only after 10 sec timeouts. This behaviour has been observed in master for some time (months). Good way to see the full screen "Please wait" message.

Seems like the reported recording file status is incorrect or out dated for 1 min. The file reader trying to read from in-progress recording buffer. The "recordings" screen appears to show the correct status.

Have attempted to find clues in the logs.

That's great so where are they?

I'm sure when creating your bug you saw the massive header on how to create a ticket:

Any chance this is nothing more than some jobqueue task such as commflagging waiting until a recording is complete, and then running full bore, overloading an underpowered system?

comment:3 Changed 5 years ago by blm-ubunet@…

No job queue stuff except metadata lookup Commflag does not work here (never read reports of it working).

That fact that this is:

  • 100% reproductible/repeatable
  • precisely 1 min post recording end
  • exactly 10sec timeouts
  • recording screen shows correct status at all times.

and the frontend log just FE doing nothing for 10sec might have been strong clues.

Attached logs are for short recording that ends at 8:02 FE log shows successful (fast) playback during recording. FE log shows multiple (5?) slow 10 sec timeouts playback starts.

I can not demonstrate the precise 1 minute window in these logs because of the overhead of starting/stopping playback (can not get 6 attempts inside 60 seconds). But I assure you that is the case.

Replying to blm-ubunet@…: mentions the same behaviour.

I can't draw any comparison there with you reported

Please read again with open mind. ​ post #1 <quote>Another issue I see, is when a just finished in-progress recording (in the same minute it closed) is played, the delay is between 10-20 seconds.</quote>

That reads as very similar to this reported bug. The 20sec mentioned could imply/indicate they did not measure against a reference clock & didn't want to imply it was exactly 10sec.
