Subject: [PATCH v3 0/6] [RFC] Maintenance III: background maintenance
Date: Fri, 28 Aug 2020 15:45:11 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <pull.680.v3.git.1598629517.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <pull.680.v2.git.1598380805.gitgitgadget@gmail.com>

This is based on v3 of Part II (ds/maintenance-part-2) [1].

[1] 
https://lore.kernel.org/git/pull.696.v3.git.1598380599.gitgitgadget@gmail.com/

This RFC is intended to show how I hope to integrate true background
maintenance into Git. As opposed to my original RFC [2], this entirely
integrates with cron (through crontab [-e|-l]) to launch maintenance
commands in the background.

[2] 
https://lore.kernel.org/git/pull.597.git.1585946894.gitgitgadget@gmail.com/

Some preliminary work is done to allow a new --schedule option that tells
the command which tasks to run based on a maintenance.<task>.schedule config
option. The timing is not enforced by Git, but instead is expected to be
provided as a hint from a cron schedule.

A new for-each-repo builtin runs Git commands on every repo in a given list.
Currently, the list is stored as a config setting, allowing a new 
maintenance.repos config list to store the repositories registered for
background maintenance. Others may want to add a --file=<file> option for
their own workflows, but I focused on making this as simple as possible for
now.

The updates to the git maintenance builtin include new register/unregister 
subcommands and start/stop subcommands. The register subcommand initializes
the config while the start subcommand does everything register does plus 
update the cron table. The unregister and stop commands reverse this
process.

The very last patch is entirely optional. It sets a recommended schedule
based on my own experience with very large repositories. I'm open to other
suggestions, but these are ones that I think work well and don't cause a
"rewrite the world" scenario like running nightly 'gc' would do.

I've been testing this scenario on my macOS laptop for a while and my Linux
machine. I have modified my cron task to provide logging via trace2 so I can
see what's happening. A future direction here would be to add some
maintenance logs to the repository so we can track what is happening and
diagnose whether the maintenance strategy is working on real repos.

Note: git maintenance (start|stop) only works on machines with cron by
design. The proper thing to do on Windows will come later. Perhaps this
command should be marked as unavailable on Windows somehow, or at least a
better error than "cron may not be available on your system". I did find
that that message is helpful sometimes: macOS worker agents for CI builds
typically do not have cron available.

Updates since RFC v2
====================

 * Update the cron schedule with three lines saying "run hourly except at
   midnight", "run daily except on first day of week", and "run weekly".
   This avoids parallel processes competing for the object database lock.
   
   
 * Update the --schedule= and 'maintenance..schedule' config options. This
   is reflected in the recommended schedule at the end.
   
   
 * Drop the *.lastRun config option. It was going to trash config files but
   it is also not needed by the new cron schedule.
   
   

I expect this to be my final RFC version before restarting the thread with a
v1 next week. Please throw any and all critique at the plan here!

Updates since RFC v1
====================

 * Some fallout from rewriting the option parsing in "Maintenance I"
   
   
 * This applies cleanly on v3 of "Maintenance II"
   
   
 * Several helpful feedback items from Đoàn Trần Công Danh are applied.
   
   
 * There is an unresolved comment around the use of approxidate("now").
   These calls are untouched from v1.
   
   

Thanks, -Stolee

     -    maintenance: add --scheduled option and config
     +    maintenance: add --schedule option and config
      
          A user may want to run certain maintenance tasks based on frequency, not
          conditions given in the repository. For example, the user may want to
          perform a 'prefetch' task every hour, or 'gc' task every day. To assist,
     -    update the 'git maintenance run --scheduled' command to check the config
     -    for the last run of that task and add a number of seconds. The task
     -    would then run only if the current time is beyond that minimum
     -    timestamp.
     +    update the 'git maintenance run' command to include a
     +    '--schedule=<frequency>' option. The allowed frequencies are 'hourly',
     +    'daily', and 'weekly'. These values are also allowed in a new config
     +    value 'maintenance.<task>.schedule'.
      
     -    Add a '--scheduled' option to 'git maintenance run' to only run tasks
     -    that have had enough time pass since their last run. This is done for
     -    each enabled task by checking if the current timestamp is at least as
     -    large as the sum of 'maintenance.<task>.lastRun' and
     -    'maintenance.<task>.schedule' in the Git config. This second value is
     -    new to this commit, storing a number of seconds intended between runs.
     +    The 'git maintenance run --schedule=<frequency>' checks the '*.schedule'
     +    config value for each enabled task to see if the configured frequency is
     +    at least as frequent as the frequency from the '--schedule' argument. We
     +    use the following order, for full clarity:
      
     -    A user could then set up an hourly maintenance run with the following
     -    cron table:
     +            'hourly' > 'daily' > 'weekly'
      
     -      0 * * * * git -C <repo> maintenance run --scheduled
     +    Use new 'enum schedule_priority' to track these values numerically.
      
     -    Then, the user could configure the repository with the following config
     -    values:
     +    The following cron table would run the scheduled tasks with the correct
     +    frequencies:
      
     -      maintenance.prefetch.schedule  3000
     -      maintenance.gc.schedule       86000
     +      0 1-23 * * *    git -C <repo> maintenance run --scheduled=hourly
     +      0 0    * * 1-6  git -C <repo> maintenance run --scheduled=daily
     +      0 0    * * 0    git -C <repo> maintenance run --scheduled=weekly
      
     -    These numbers are slightly lower than one hour and one day (in seconds).
     -    The cron schedule will enforce the hourly run rate, but we can use these
     -    schedules to ensure the 'gc' task runs once a day. The error is given
     -    because the *.lastRun config option is specified at the _start_ of the
     -    task run. Otherwise, a slow task run could shift the "daily" job of 'gc'
     -    from a 10:00pm run to 11:00pm run, or later.
     +    This cron schedule will run --scheduled=hourly every hour except at
     +    midnight. This avoids a concurrent run with the --scheduled=daily that
     +    runs at midnight every day except the first day of the week. This avoids
     +    a concurrent run with the --scheduled=weekly that runs at midnight on
     +    the first day of the week. Since --scheduled=daily also runs the
     +    'hourly' tasks and --scheduled=weekly runs the 'hourly' and 'daily'
     +    tasks, we will still see all tasks run with the proper frequencies.

          maintenance using 'cron', when available. This integration is as simple
          as I could make it, barring some implementation complications.
      
     -    For now, the background maintenance is scheduled to run hourly via the
     -    following cron table row (ignore line breaks):
     +    The schedule is laid out as follows:
      
     -            0 * * * * $p/git --exec-path=$p
     -                    for-each-repo --config=maintenance.repo

     +      0 0    * * 1-6 $cmd maintenance run --schedule=daily
     +      0 0    * * 0   $cmd maintenance run --schedule=weekly
      
     -    Future extensions may want to add more complex schedules or some form of
     -    logging. For now, hourly runs seem frequent enough to satisfy the needs
     -    of tasks like 'prefetch' without being so frequent that users would
     -    complain about many no-op commands.
     +    where $cmd is a properly-qualified 'git for-each-repo' execution:
      
     -    Here, "$p" is a placeholder for the path to the current Git executable.
     -    This is critical for systems with multiple versions of Git.
     -    Specifically, macOS has a system version at '/usr/bin/git' while the
     -    version that users can install resides at '/usr/local/bin/git' (symlinked
     -    to '/usr/local/libexec/git-core/git'). This will also use your
     -    locally-built version if you build and run this in your development
     +    $cmd=$path/git --exec-path=$path for-each-repo --config=maintenance.repo
     +
     +    where $path points to the location of the Git executable running 'git
     +    maintenance start'. This is critical for systems with multiple versions
     +    of Git. Specifically, macOS has a system version at '/usr/bin/git' while
     +    the version that users can install resides at '/usr/local/bin/git'

     +    your locally-built version if you build and run this in your development
          environment without installing first.
      
     +    This conditional schedule avoids having cron launch multiple 'git
     +    for-each-repo' commands in parallel. Such parallel commands would likely
     +    lead to the 'hourly' and 'daily' tasks competing over the object
     +    database lock. This could lead to to some tasks never being run! Since
     +    the --schedule=<frequency> argument will run all tasks with _at least_
     +    the given frequency, the daily runs will also run the hourly tasks.
     +    Similarly, the weekly runs will also run the daily and hourly tasks.

          The GIT_TEST_CRONTAB environment variable is not intended for users to
          edit, but instead as a way to mock the 'crontab [-l]' command. This
