Description Hanna 2012-06-21 14:54:35 PDT
Maybe add an indicator somewhere on timeline, like add more details to the popup generated by mouse hovering?

Recommendations appreciated, thank you.
Comment 1 Hanna 2012-07-04 07:20:38 PDT
add an event on timeline indicating when a worker started and when it's destroyed instead

Shared workers instantiation is browser-specific. Please make sure tests pass at least on Mac ports and for Chromium.

Worker message processing is asynchronous to the inspector message interchange. By the time you leave this method and stop timeline, the worker is not necessarily stopped.

didDestroyWorker is not called on our platform

turned out that the url passed in is different from context->url().string(), in order to match up with the worker terminated I changed it, but if this messes up other things (ie inspectorAgent->didCreateWorker(id, url, isSharedWorker);) I'll add a new method then pass in context->url().string()

it is supposed to fall through, since workercreated has both isSharedWorker and url, but I couldn't pass the isSharedWorker info to workerterminated easily

this method that I used is copied directly from LayoutTests/fast/workers for both sharedWorker and dedicatedWorker, should that be fine?

my bad, it might be called on the worker thread, but I tried didDestroyWorker it doesn't show up on the timeline of the mainthread (which is the purpose of this PR)

Note:
1. the worker ID is the address
2. on termination, worker ID and isSharedWorker is hard to know (since didDestroyWorker doesn't work in this case), it might be possible to include those things in ScriptExecutionContext, however I do not know if this is desired
3. for testing, I added setTimeout to StopTimeline, I hope the workers will be done in 5 seconds

Hm. That would be a serios bug. We should never get here on the worker thread. Could you look into what is wrong here? This change is about reliably instrumenting creation and destruction of the worker on the main thread and you should not use workarounds if underlying code is behaving unexpectedly.

What is the difference between the url and context's url?

Passing two urls is confusing, we need to figure out why they differ.

> Source/WebCore/inspector/InspectorInstrumentation.cpp:1009
> +    if (InspectorTimelineAgent* timelineAgent = instrumentingAgents->inspectorTimelineAgent())

It would be nice if didDestroyWorker was called when it should be.

> Source/WebCore/inspector/front-end/TimelinePresentationModel.js:586
> +                contentHelper._appendTextRow(WebInspector.UIString("URL"), this.data["url"]);

I think Worker ID applies to the terminated info. Loading multiple workers from the same URL could be used for parallel data processing, so it happens more often than you might think.

> LayoutTests/inspector/timeline/timeline-web-workers.html:31
> +    InspectorTest.startTimeline(function() {

We always use named functions with { on the next line.

> LayoutTests/inspector/timeline/timeline-web-workers.html:37
> +        setTimeout(function(){InspectorTest.stopTimeline(step3);}, 5000);

Tests should not have timeouts. You should signal worker termination from the page to the front-end via logging something to the console and sniffing for the console message.

Sorry if it sounds confusing, I was making speculations because as of now the inspector I have only shows the timeline events on the mainthread (I was trying to say I do not know if diddestroyworker would show up on the inspector window for the worker which I do not have) and unfortunately diddestroyworker is never called either way, so I used didterminatecontext to approximate when the worker is destroyed since didterminatecontext is called after the workerthread (and everything relating to it) is de-allocated which should also be valid

the url being passed in is more specific, the context's url is cut half, ie less specific, but the first part of the urls are identical

I do realize that it will work this way, I just want to make sure that we fix things along the way and if the one that should work is not working, we fix it instead of looking for the workaround.

Why would one want the truncated url? Can we use the full url for everything?

So I looked into it a little. The current inspectorinstrumentation::diddestroyworker is called in ~abstrackworker, which sharedworker inherits, though it wasn't even called on sharedworker's destruction

What I am thinking is to move the instrumentation of diddestroyworker to injectedscripthost, which is called via injectedfakeworker.js,and the instrumentation should be called on fakeworker destruction. Please let me know if this is be valid as I am not familiar with fakeworker, thank you

I'd like to remove fake workers inspection to avoid the confusion (https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=91867). Once that instrumentation is removed, you should be able to add missing instrumentation to show workers in the timeline.

I think it might also be a javascript parsing issue that diddestroyworker is not called (in workersidebarpane, on http://pmav.eu/stuff/javascript-webworkers/, if you run the workers multiple times, they get piled up and is never terminated in the workersidebarpane, nevertheless this does not happen in the latest build of chromium, but happens in the official release of chromium on ubuntu and in everything else, ie safari, bb, qt), so I wonder if this has anything to do with how javascript core and v8 handles worker termination, nevertheless I am still investigating and will use diddestroyworker to make the instrumentation to timeline once I get it working

You have workerId, url and workerId, url used repeatedly in different places.  Choose an order for the two parameters for consistency.  I prefer workerId, url but I leave it to you

> Source/WebCore/inspector/InspectorInstrumentation.cpp:972

can a worker ever have id 0?
it's better to set it to -1

> Source/WebCore/inspector/InspectorInstrumentation.cpp:977

check for id > 0 if you set id = -1 as initial value.

I don't like the variable being public.  I'd rather see a static getter and static setter.

why did you remove the early return?  You should "return id;" here as well.

Please explain what happens and why.

I'd also be interested in learning more about the use cases. Is this a user request? There is a lot happening in the browser, not everything deserves to be on the timeline.

Even though the worker's javascript is processed on a separate thread it is still useful to know when a worker is created/terminated.  This is especially important on devices with limited system resources.  This is meant to be a surface level overview and for further details about how things run Web Workers can be inspected in their own timeline.

I would move it into the InspectorWorkerAgent then.

It is cleaner to generate an id first and then to use it in two methods below.

No, i don't think we need getters, as I mention, I'd just move it into the InspectorWorkerAgent.

> Even though the worker's javascript is processed on a separate thread it is still useful to know when a worker is created/terminated.  This is especially important on devices with limited system resources.  This is meant to be a surface level overview and for further details about how things run Web Workers can be inspected in their own timeline.

There are multiple timeline operation modes we are providing:

1. Performance angle. Workers should not be a big deal here. They operate elsewhere, while worker script loading is reflected in the page's timeline
2. Async causation analysis - we glue setTimeout with timer fire events in that mode. Also does not make much sense to the workers
3. Memory view (no correlation)
4. Frame mode (no correlation)
5. Getting to know what the program is doing when one has no clue

Workers fall to under (5), but many, many other things do too. I don't think we should add workers before we add most of the events there. That's why I am a bit reluctant to this change.

Looks good in general.

How about more early return style here?
InspectorWorkerAgent* workerAgent = instrumentingAgents->inspectorWorkerAgent();
if (!workerAgent)
    return;

int id = workerAgent->didStartWorkerContext(workerContextProxy, url);
if (!id)
    return;

if (InspectorTimelineAgent* timelineAgent = instrumentingAgents->inspectorTimelineAgent())
    timelineAgent->didStartWorker(id, url);

Ditto.

Is there a way I get a pointer to a request for this feature? It sounds like 1) there are not so many scenarios that involve it and 2) worker context destruction time does not really map to what developer might expect well.

The current worker panel uses instrumentation to worker context start/finished to add and remove workers in the panel, so it makes sense to use them here (only for dedicated workers)

The original request was for the timeline to show all the events in the main and the worker process instead of having them in 2 seperate frontends (they want to see the events happening all together in one place and having a tag indicating it is from which process), and this is just a start. I would appreciate your opinions/thoughts on this project/request.

It also makes sense if the user wants to see when the worker starts and how long it's been active relative to everything else

It does not. Sources panel does not imply the timing is accurate, while timeline does.

Worker front-end has its own Timeline, we can't show workers and main page on the same timeline and I wonder why one would need that.

Given that this is a fairly rare debugging scenario, it seems like user could put console.timeStamp() marks in his code to track the worker lifetime.
