Buildbot no longer supports Python 2.7 on the Buildbot master.
To exchange information over the network between master and worker we need to use protocol.
buildbot.worker.protocols.base provide interfaces to implement
wrappers around protocol specific calls, so other classes which use them do not need
to know about protocol calls or handle protocol specific exceptions.
Parameters: master –
Responsible for spawning Connection instances and updating registrations. Protocol-specific subclasses are instantiated with protocol-specific parameters by the buildmaster during startup.
Represents connection to single worker
Dictionary containing mapping between
Proxyclass for this protocol This may be overridden by subclass to declare its proxy implementations
Returns: shallow copy of args dictionary with proxies instead of impls
Helper method that will use
proxies, and replace
Implobjects by specific
Parameters: cb – callback Returns:
Register a callback to be called if worker gets disconnected
Parameters: message (string) – message for worker Returns: Deferred
Print message to worker log file
Get worker information, commands and version, put them in dictionary then return back
Parameters: builders (List) – list with wanted builders Returns: Deferred containing PB references XXX
Take list with wanted builders and send them to worker, return list with created builders
remoteStartCommand(remoteCommand, builderName, commandId, commandName, args)¶
Start command on worker
Shutdown the worker, causing its process to halt permanently.
:param builderName name of the builder for which the build is starting :returns: Deferred
Just starts build
remoteInterruptCommand(builderName, commandId, why)¶
- builderName (string) – self explanatory
- commandId (string) – command number
- why (string) – reason to interrupt
Interrupt the command executed on builderName with given commandId on worker, print reason “why” to worker logs
Following classes are describing the worker -> master part of the protocol.
In order to support old workers, we must make sure we do not change the current pb protocol.
This is why we implement a
Impl vs Proxy methods.
All the objects that are referenced from the workers for remote calls have an
Impl and a
Proxy base classes in this module.
Impl classes are subclassed by buildbot master, and implement the actual logic for the protocol api.
Proxy classes are implemented by the worker/master protocols, and implements the demux and de-serialization of protocol calls.
On worker sides, those proxy objects are replaced by a proxy object having a single method to call master side methods:
callRemote(message, *args, **kw)¶
calls the method
"remote_" + messageon master side
Represents a RemoteCommand status controller
Parameters: updates – dictionary of updates
Called when the workers has updates to the current remote command
possible keys for updates are:
stdout: Some logs where captured in remote command’s stdout. value:
<data> as string
stderr: Some logs where captured in remote command’s stderr. value:
<data> as string
header: remote command’s header text. value:
<data> as string
log: one of the watched logs has received some text. value:
(<logname> as string, <data> as string)
rc: Remote command exited with a return code. value:
<rc> as integer
elapsed: Remote command has taken <elapsed> time. value:
<elapsed seconds> as float
stat: sent by the
statcommand with the result of the os.stat, converted to a tuple. value:
<stat> as tuple
files: sent by the
globcommand with the result of the glob.glob. value:
<files> as list of string
got_revision: sent by the source commands with the revision checked out. value:
<revision> as string
repo_downloaded: sent by the
repocommand with the list of patches downloaded by repo. value:
<downloads> as list of string
Class used to implement data transfer between worker and master
