    I have spent today cleaning up comments from previous commits. I have come to the conclusion that the hooks exist for the sake of the plugins who actually maintain their own state, so the configuration_hook stuff will have to go into the irods core library rather than the executable code. That way I can put…

  • Twenty-Seventh, the Language

    I have had an irresistible idea lately. What if you had forth but you had 256 stacks. We can’t start there, what if it was based on the venerable MUF(Multi user forth) language, which has some relatively simple typing and generally provides a higher level interface, ameliorating one of the biggest issues I personally have…

  • Human Replacement Therapy

    “So,” My dad says, “you’re really sure you want to go through with this? I understand that it has effects that are irreversible past a certain point” His eyes are full of concern. It is misplaced concern, I think, but I can tell he is trying to be as kind to my ambitions as he…

    Today was successful. I was able to get the control plane to stop crashing and get the configuration tests to run to completion properly. The benchmark is written and reloading the configuration is so much faster than killing the irods server and starting it again. Of course, that means it has limitations. Currently it is…

    Today has been frustrating. It has been beset by constant crashes and test failures. Today it seems that the previous bug where the delay server would die constantly because runtime values were erased appears to have returned with a vengeance. So far I have been isolating what is causing the particular issue in the reload…

    Today has been spent addressing comments made on the pull request. Address that the field visibility of acquire_*_lock functions implied that it was meant to be derived Replace rodslog calls in get_server_property with the modern logging system Restore some whitespace In addition, I updated the rodsLog calls in rodsServer and irods_server_properties. I still need to…

    Today has been spent getting the tests working for the pull request. I apparently need to reformat the files, but for some reason, git clang-format isn’t making that especially easy

  • Daily Report(6/22)

    I am starting today by running more of the test suites to see if the changes have broken anything unrelated. So far so good, except for finding that the build+test script was running the specific test “0”(uninitialized variable). Resource testing seems to fail on the same spots as before erratically. I’m going to assume that…

  • Daily report(6/21)

    Today I started by deciding to work on what I anticipate to be an especially complicated bit, the authentication system. Later on in the day, I admitted I should work up to that, so instead I’m looking for low hanging fruits. One of the first things I have found is that the changes in the…

  • Daily report(6/20)

    Currently the issue I am facing is the rule language. Given that this was a sticking point last year, I can’t say that I’m surprised. Currently I can’t see what the msi_get_server_property is actually returning, and given that they running in the irods agent server it may need additional logic there. I am having trouble…
