A few of our builds errored out over the last few days. We've been seeing intermittent errors like this for a few weeks now.

I emailed support@… :


I'm a Tor Project developer who monitors our Travis CI.

We're seeing about 1% of builds error with one of the following errors:

1. Initial VM startup hangs:

The VM startup appears to hang even if sudo is not required.
We have an open patch to reduce the number of jobs per build.

2. Connecting to fails:

The network seems to fail mainly on sudo required builds.
We have an open patch to reduce our dependency on

Is there anything you can do on your end?

I emailed them again today, when the error rate increased to 1 in 3 jobs.

It seems that Travis has solved their issues for the moment.

For future reference:

It often takes Travis a week to respond to emails.

For the next time, here the information you can include in every e-mail you send us:

- GitHub account
- Repository name
- Explanation of the issue
- Copy of the error message (if any)
- Link to a specific build showing the issue
