I get a lot of them. This isn't good or useful.
I ran the following script:
for i in testing/pluto/*/OUTPUT/*.diff ; do
if [ ! -s "$i" ] ; then
: no difference
elif grep '^[-+][0-9]' "$i" | grep -v "retransmission" >/dev/null ; then
: echo $i not just retransmission
echo $i just RETRANSMISSION
Today I got 55 lines listing diff files containing only retransmission
messages. That means 55 extra files that I have to examine
What should be done?
Should we calm the hair-trigger on retransmission?
Cagney: could you put logic in testing/utils/kvmresults.py that
reports differences that are only due to retransmissions in a way
similar to the way it reports differences only due white-space?
