Eric Newton commented on ACCUMULO-2876:
---------------------------------------

I like the 2nd option (always use the site configuration).

> While working ACCUMULO-2615, I encountered a weird looping behavior rooted at {{HdfsZooInstance.getInstanceID()}}
that seems to accidentally avoid a stack overflow. I'm a bit blocked at the moment on -2615
since my work exposed the loop.
> Here's a summary of the loop. The unit test {{SystemCredentialsTest}} in the tserver
module exercises it.
> * Start at {{HdfsZooInstance.getInstanceID()}}, which calls to an internal {{_getInstanceID()}}
the first time.
> * A volume manager is needed to find the instance ID in HDFS, so {{VolumeManagerImpl.get()}}
is called.
> * That call needs the "system" configuration, so a call to {{ServerConfiguration.getSystemConfiguration()}}
is made, passing the {{HdfsZooInstance}} object.
> * The system configuration is a {{ZooConfiguration}} object, and that is created from
{{ZooConfiguration.getInstance()}}.
> * That factory method creates a {{ZooConfiguration}} object, saved as a static field.
The code then tries to get the instance ID for the passed-in instance, which is the {{HdfsZooInstance}}
object. So we're back at the top of the loop.
> In the last step of the second iteration of the loop, the factory method sees that the
static field for the singleton instance of {{ZooConfiguration}} was set in the first iteration,
so it returns it and doesn't look for the instance ID. That stops the looping and the call
stack unwinds.
> (My refactoring work has trouble with this because it gets rid of the single static field
in favor of a map of objects keyed by instance ID.)
> This loop indicates a mutual dependency between configurations, the volume manager, and
{{HdfsZooInstance}} that should be resolved.
