Subject Re: Checking what a BatchWriter is stuck on; failure during split
Date Fri, 22 Apr 2016 16:31:12 GMT
Dylan,

You pastebin'd a jstack of the tserver, though from the little I can see,
I'd think the issue was on the client.  Do you have a jstack of what it
looks like?

You say that "every hour the static collection of TabletLocators clears
itself", but my read is that this statement only applies to the client used
by the tserver.
