Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-2204) Add delete client to continuous ingest
Date Thu, 16 Jan 2014 16:06:22 GMT


Keith Turner commented on ACCUMULO-2204:

bq. Do we have any way of verifying that 19 should not exist?

Maybe make the last node point to the first node deleted.  Write 19->29 and then delete
19.  Its not perfect, but it adds an interesting variation to the test.

> Adding the linked list operation of deleting nodes would detect deleted data coming back.
Could create something similar to the walker that does the following.
>  # selects a random node X
>  # follows the linked list for a random number of times and stops at node Y
>  # makes X point Y
>  # deletes all nodes that were between X and Y in the list
> For example given the following linked list 
> {noformat}
>    7->5->29->13->19->23->17
> {noformat}
> If 5 were picked as the first node and 23 as the last node, then the following operations
would be done.
>  # write 5->23
>  # flush
>  # delete 29
>  # flush
>  # delete 13
>  # flush
>  # delete 19
>  # flush
>  # do batch read and/or scan to verify deletes 
> If 29 or 13 should come back, then the nodes they point to would not exist and verification
would catch this.  I think the operations above are done in such a way that the delete client
could be killed at any time.
> Since continuous ingest works w/ random number there is a small chance that the delete
client could delete a node just written by another client.  With 63 bit random numbers this
chance is exceedingly small.  Should it occur the person debugging should be able to sort
it out when looking at the  write ahead logs.  Therefore I do not think its worthwhile taking
any action in the test.
