I’m trying to run the test suite for the AbstractAlgebra.jl package with 0.7-beta2, but after many minutes, the first test has not started to run.
This is probably due to us doing something stupid that is hampering performance. (I note there were some issues with a previous beta relating to exceedingly slow performance with regard to compilation, but these have reportedly been solved.)
Does anyone have any insight into changes that might have occurred in the latest version of Julia that might result in impossibly slow performance when starting up tests? I understand there have been some changes here that we might not be up-to-date with.
At this point, I have not seen any test actually run, at least 10 minutes later. The CPU was running flat out for more than 10 minutes, but now seems to have slowed down, yet no test have yet run.
Note that we have not updated AbstractAlgebra for 0.7 yet, due to some bugs that would not allow us to start it up in previous betas. I am no longer hitting those, but the warnings all look harmless and mostly relate to our use of the old docstring format, use of functions that have been moved out of base, and our use of Null and ismatch. I can’t be sure, but I don’t think those could be relevant here.
If I simply type some of the tests in by hand at the console, they pass just fine.
