Gumshoe (On-Device Diagnostics)

How To Build

$ fx set core.sherlock
--with //src/recovery/diagnostics/gumshoe:tests
--with-base //src/recovery/diagnostics/gumshoe:gumshoe
--args=‘core_realm_shards += [ “//src/recovery/diagnostics/gumshoe:gumshoe-core-shard” ]’

How To Test

After confirming your “fx set” includes this --with:

--with //src/recovery/diagnostics/gumshoe:tests

and confirming there‘s a “gumshoe-tests” section in your OUT dir’s “test.json” file, eg:

$ cat ~/fuchsia/out/core.sherlock-release/tests.json | grep name | grep gumshoe “name”: “fuchsia-pkg://”,

You can run the tests using:

$ rm ~/output.txt; fx test -v gumshoe-tests --logpath ~/output.txt

and inspect ~/output.txt for any console output generated by your tests.

An example test from is “register_templates_generates_handlebars_calls()” and you can force this test to fail by altering it:

@@ -79,7 +66,7 @@ mod tests { .times(3) .returning(|,| Ok(()));

  •    register_templates(&mut mock_handlebars, vec!("1", "2", "3"))
  •    register_templates(&mut mock_handlebars, vec!("1", "2", "3", "4"))

and running the “fx test” command above, and then inspecting ~/output.txt for the error:

thread ‘main’ panicked at ‘MockHandlebarsTrait::trait_register_template_file: Expectation() called more than 3 times’

How To Run Interactively (Harder)

To launch the Diagnostics component interactively, provided your component is available on device (set using “--with-base”) or from your host (set using “-with” and running “fx serve”), this may work:

$ ffx component run /core/ffx-laboratory:gumshoe fuchsia-pkg://

depending on ffx-laboratory sandbox limitations. Look for limitations by doing:

$ fx log | grep gumshoe

and looking for errors like:

WARNING: Required protocol fuchsia.posix.socket.Provider was not available for target component /core/ffx-laboratory:gumshoe: /core/ffx-laboratory:gumshoe tried to use fuchsia.posix.socket.Provider from its parent, but the parent does not offer that capability. Note, use clauses in CML default to using from parent.

You can get around these errors by editing what's exposed by ffx-laboratory under:


but that can be challenging to maintain.

How To Run On Boot (Easier)

To launch the Diagnostics component when your device is booted, add the Diagnostics component‘s core_shard manifest to the core_realm_shards list of the product you’re building.

This is done with the “fx set” argument:

--args=‘core_realm_shards +=
[ “//src/recovery/diagnostics/gumshoe:gumshoe-core-shard” ]’

which asks for some “gumshoe behavior” to be added to the product's core shard, including “eagerly starting” gumshoe.

After making this change, build and reflash your device:

$ fx build $ fx shell dm rb $ fx flash

After your device is fully booted, verify the Diagnostics component is running:

$ fx shell ps | grep gumshoe p: 29954 380.1K 380K 16K

If it is not running, look in the logs for anything about “not being able to find gumshoe”, eg:

$ fx log | grep gumshoe [00005.966601][2643][2645][base_resolver] ERROR: [../../src/sys/base-resolver/src/] failed to resolve component URL fuchsia-pkg:// package not found: open failed with status: NOT_FOUND: NOT_FOUND

In that case, maybe you just did “--with” instead of “--with-base”

After confirming the process is running, find your device's IPV4 with:

$ ffx target list NAME [...] IP RCS fuchsia-f80f-f975-esf3 [...] fe20::2bfb:1019:1a34:ac27%enxf82397511f2, Y [...]]

And try to hit the HTTP Server running on IPV4 on Port 8080.
