Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-2014) Feedback loop on Tracer table given small in-memory map on server
Date Fri, 13 Dec 2013 22:30:10 GMT
Sean Busbey created ACCUMULO-2014:
-------------------------------------

             Summary: Feedback loop on Tracer table given small in-memory map on server
                 Key: ACCUMULO-2014
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-2014
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: trace, tserver
    Affects Versions: 1.4.3
            Reporter: Sean Busbey
            Priority: Minor



Under the right conditions the tracer table can get into a feedback loop where messages about
flushes to a tracer table tablet keep arriving and triggering subsequent flush operations.

This was observed on a 1.4.3 cluster initially configured for 256MB in-memory maps.

This manifests as a high rate of ingest to the tracer table, even in the absence of client
activity or any client created tables. i.e. on a 3  worker node cluster with no external activity
500 entries/second into the tracer table.

note that this example relies on the default configuration, using "root" as the user for the
tracer role. If your tracer user is set to something else, that is the user that would show
up in the credential checks above.


Current work around is to increase the memory map size.

We should attempt to detect this situation and at least issue a clear log message. It would
be nicer if we could detect it and turn off tracing messages related to the tracing table.
