Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-2766) Single walog operation may wait for multiple hsync calls

Keith Turner commented on ACCUMULO-2766:
----------------------------------------

I think its done.  I wanted to set it aside for a bit and then take another look at the patch.
 I'll do that in the next few days.

> While looking into slow {{hsync}} calls, I noticed an oddity in the way Accumulo processes
syncs.  Specifically the way {{closeLock}} is used in {{DfsLogger}}, it seems like the following
situation could occur. 
>  
>  # thread B starts executing DfsLogger.LogSyncingTask.run()
>  # thread 1 enters DfsLogger.logFileData()
>  # thread 1 writes to walog
>  # thread 1 locks _closeLock_ 
>  # thread 1 adds sync work to workQueue
>  # thread 1 unlocks _closeLock_
>  # thread B takes sync work off of workQueue
>  # thread B locks _closeLock_
>  # thread B calls sync
>  # thread 3 enters DfsLogger.logFileData()
>  # thread 3 writes to walog
>  # thread 3 blocks locking _closeLock_
>  # thread 4 enters DfsLogger.logFileData()
>  # thread 4 writes to walog
>  # thread 4 blocks locking _closeLock_
>  # thread B unlocks _closeLock_
>  # thread 4 locks _closeLock_ 
>  # thread 4 adds sync work to workQueue
>  # thread B takes sync work off of workQueue
>  # thread B blocks locking _closeLock_
>  # thread 4 unlocks _closeLock_
>  # thread B locks _closeLock_
>  # thread B calls sync
>  # thread B unlocks _closeLock_
>  # thread 3 locks _closeLock_
>  # thread 3 adds sync work to workQueue
>  # thread 3 unlocks _closeLock_
> In this situation thread 3 unnecessarily has to wait for an extra {{hsync}} call.  Not
sure if this situation actually occurs, or if it occurs very frequently.  Looking at the code
it seems like it would be nice if sync operations could be queued w/o synchronizing w/ sync
operations.
