Subject: [RFC PATCH] trace2: don't overload target directories
Date: Mon, 29 Jul 2019 15:20:52 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <99e4a0fe409a236d210d95e54cd03fce61daa291.1564438745.git.steadmon@google.com> (raw)

trace2 can write files into a target directory. With heavy usage, this
directory can fill up with files, causing difficulty for
trace-processing systems.

When trace2 would write a file to a target directory, first check
whether or not the directory is overloaded. A directory is overloaded if
there is a sentinel file declaring an overload, or if the number of
files exceeds a threshold. If the latter, create a sentinel file to
speed up later overload checks.

The file count threshold is currently set to 1M files, but this can be
overridden for testing with GIT_TRACE2_TEST_OVERLOAD_FILE_COUNT.

The assumption is that a separate trace-processing system is dealing
with the generated traces; once it processes and removes the sentinel
file, it should be safe to generate new trace files again.

Potential future work:
* Write a message into the sentinel file (should match the requested
  trace2 output format).
* Make the overload threshold (and the whole overload feature)
  configurable.
