Subject: unacceptable performance : 40mins+ per ./Build invocation
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.8k
It seems every time cpan(1) or I run any generated ./Build script, giving a "make" or "install" command , it takes over 40 minutes for each invocation to complete . This is on a linux 2.6.38+ glibc-2.13 gcc-4.6.0 binutils-2.21.51.20110407 x86_64 box. The Build process grows huge ( > 600MB RSS ) , and an strace shows accesses to these absurd file names : open("bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/biopen("bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/ldscripts/tic3xcoff.xu", O_RDONLY) = 6 ... stat("bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/ldscripts/tic3xcoff.xu", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=1191, ...}) = 0 ... open("bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/ldscripts/tic3xcoff.xu", O_RDONLY) = 6 ...

Hi Ken - thanks for responding - Oops, sorry, can't believe I didn't mention that info in my first post - I just built perl-5.14.1-maint from GIT (making sure it passes its test suite) and did part of a 'cpan upgrade', which installed Module::Build 0.38 . I can provide strace logs / core dumps of one of these huge Build processes over a website if you like . Regards, Jason

Perl 5.14.0 includes Module::Build 0.38. If you have 5.14 or later, it shouldn't install Moduile::Build from cpan. That is suspicious and makes me wonder if your perl is somehow incorrectly configured or installed. Please attach the output of your perl -V. Are you getting this failure from an *installed* Perl or are you trying to run cpan from within the Perl source directory? If the latter, please install it to a temporary directory and try your tests using a fully installed Perl. Also, do you have a .modulebuildrc file that is setting any variables? -- David

Sorry, yes, Module::Build WAS the one installed from PERL's core modules during 5.14.1 build . I noticed this problem when doing a "cpan upgrade" AFTER installation of a fresh new perl-5.14.1 . Show quoted text

It happens with EVERY module build that uses Module::Build - I have no .modulebuildrc - you mean ~/.modulebuildrc ? This doesn't exist - where would this file be ?

Its entirely probable you found a bug in that version of perl. Do you have the same problem with a freshly built 5.14.0? -- Whip me, beat me, make my code compatible with VMS!

Aha ! I had a cyclic link : /usr/bin/bin -> /usr/bin . Once this is removed, performance is again "acceptable" - around 4 minutes to build Crypt::OpenSSL::CA instead of 40 - But why is every generated Module::Build script scanning ALL files under /usr/bin and /usr/lib ? This is @ 8GB of files on my sytem . How can I disable generation of this /usr/{bin,lib} file scan by Module::Build ? And what mechanism is it using to do cyclic link detection ? whatever it is, it is a highly inefficient one - an efficient one is to check that one has not processed a directory inode before, as follows (a fragment doing recursive descent of a directory tree in a perl program I wrote) : my ($dev,$dino )=( (stat($dir))[0 ... 1] ); $dinodes{$dino} = $dir ; do { $dir = pop(@dirs); opendir(D,$dir)||die("opendir($dir) failed: $? : $!"); ENT:while( readdir(D) ) { my $ent = $_; if( ($ent eq '.') || ($ent eq '..') ) { next ENT; } my ( $ent_dev, $ent_ino ) = ( (stat($dir.'/'.$ent))[0 ... 1] ); if( ( $ent_dev ne $dev ) ||( -l $dir.'/'.$ent ) ) { next ENT; } if( -d $dir.'/'.$ent ) { if( !exists( $dinodes{$ent_ino} ) ) { $dinodes{$ent_ino} = $dir.'/'.$ent; push(@dirs, $dir.'/'.$ent ) ; } }else { ... Please don't check for cyclic links by just waiting for the filename / directory depth to grow too long !

I suspect it's trying to confirm that the perl binary that is running "Build" is the same as the perl binary used to run "Build.PL". That is actually a non-trivial task. If you run it with an absolute path, does it help any? $ /opt/path/to/perl Build.PL $ ./Build Or $ /opt/path/to/perl Build.PL $ /opt/path/to/perl Build -- David

Hi David - No, neither seems to have any effect : $ /usr/bin/perl Build.PL $ time /usr/bin/perl ./Build Building Crypt OpenSSL-CA ... real 5m20.154s user 0m21.635s sys 0m18.389s An strace shows it is still scanning every file under /usr/lib/perl5 , /usr/bin , and /usr/lib : $ ( strace -f -e trace=open /usr/bin/perl Build ) 2>&1 | tee /tmp/Build_opens.log; ... # takes @ 5 mins $ egrep '^open[(]"(bin|lib)/' /tmp/Build_opens.log | wc -l 60544 And the log shows it is still scanning every file : ... open("lib/ldscripts/msp430x447.xr", O_RDONLY) = 6 open("lib/ldscripts/msp430x447.xr", O_RDONLY) = 6 open("lib/ldscripts/hppalinux.xc", O_RDONLY) = 6 open("lib/ldscripts/hppalinux.xc", O_RDONLY) = 6 ... Same thing happens with: $ /usr/bin/perl ./Build.PL $ ./Build A full scan of all files under /usr/{bin,lib} still occurs . Surely there should be some way of disabling this scan ? And what about fixing the inefficient and naive cyclic link detection ?

Crypt::OpenSSL::CA has a very customized Build.PL script. Are you seeing similar slowdowns for other Build.PL distributions? Show quoted text

I'm not convinced this is a Module::Build issue. Build.PL can run *anything* and something else could be misbehaving. As far as I know, other than resolving $^X="perl" to an absolute path, there shouldn't be much if any bin directory scanning going on. At most, something might iterate PATH to check for a program, but I don't think anything is recursively traversing directories. Show quoted text

When you have the circular link on your system, what does File::Spec->path() return? Is it super-long, or of reasonable length? If that doesn't provide any useful information, then it would be great to get a perl-level stack trace showing where in the code it's crapping up. -Ken

Looks like Pod::Html - I guess I should take this up with them ? It really makes using CPAN a nightmare on my system.

Please do. You should also be able to configure Perl without HTML directories and then Module::Build shouldn't attempt to build them. -- David
