Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3039) demote "File doesn't exist" warning in the garbage collector
Date Wed, 06 Aug 2014 15:45:16 GMT


Eric Newton commented on ACCUMULO-3039:

The race condition:

* tablet server compacts a bunch of files, removes references to them
* gc scans for references to a file, and finds none
* gc deletes the file and the delete marker
* tablet server creates a new delete marker for the recently deleted file
* gc runs again, and finds that the file is missing when it attempts to delete it a second

The larger the cluster, the more likely these operations will overlap, causing the error message
about deleting a file.

> There's a race condition between the removal of a file, and the removal of the candidate
marker in the metadata table.  The race condition is safe, but the production of warnings
is annoying.  Demote this message to DEBUG.
