The spcache01 test on my PC test hardware is not finishing. It is looping generating output. Add a Test too long error count and end the test after 5 minutes.

Which test case runs too long and why?

Replying to Sebastian Huber:

Which test case runs too long and why?

The test is spcache01. I do not know the reason but I am using it to add support to handle a stuck test that loops for ever generating output.

The spcache01 test program contains several test cases. If one of them loops forever, then there is a bug in the test or the cache support.

For the test runner wouldn't this be a timed out test?

This ticket is about the tester being able to handle that case. The failure has highlighted a need for the tester to detect this, end the test and report the failure.
