Justin Azoff commented on BIT-1489:

This looks pretty good, though it's a bit large.  One thing I do notice, that is even more apparent when looking at diffs, is what we need to use namedtuple more.  Lines like this:

cmds = [(node, postterminate, [node.type, node.cwd(), "crash"]) for node in nodes]

are pretty hard to understand right now.  We have the whole CmdResult thing now, we should probably add a CmdRequest type namedtuple so that line could look like

cmds = [CmdRequest(host=node, cmd=postterminate, args[node.type, node.cwd(), "crash"]) for node in nodes]

though probably wrapped better.

also I see some other changes:

-            for (n, status) in res:
-                if not status:
-                    orig.add(n.name)
+            for r in res:
+                # if status is Fail, then add the node name
+                if not r[1]:
+                    orig.add(r[0].name)

if 'res' was a list of namedtuples for ("node", "status", "output") that could be

+            for r in res:
+                # if status is Fail, then add the node name
+                if not r.status:
+                    orig.add(r.node.name)

> Branch topic/dnthayer/ticket1396 in the broctl repo was originally intended
> to address BIT-1396 (logs disappearing on broctl restart).  Most of the commits
> in this branch are aimed at making it easier to diagnose such problems
> in the future.  The most user-visible changes are:
> 1) post-terminate will now send an email if it fails to archive any logs,
> 2) post-terminate will now re-try to archive logs that previously failed to be archived,
> 3) improvements to some error messages,
> 4) better sanity checking of config values,
> 5) significant improvements to the broctl README
