Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-4391) Source deepcopies cannot be used safely in separate threads in tserver
Date Fri, 09 Sep 2016 19:17:20 GMT


Ivan Bella commented on ACCUMULO-4391:

For case #1, the issue is more that the same decompressor was being added back into the pool
multiple times.  That was most likely done on the same thread.  I will have to do some research
to determine why close was being called multiple times.  My fix still allows that to happen,
but the decompressor would only be returned once.
For case #2, is was the root RFile.Reader being closed on the main thread or perhaps a cleanup
thread because the root scan was complete or the client was gone, but one of my threads was
still reading from it.  This is normally not a problem because we no longer care about the
results, however when it results in array creation issues and subsequent memory issues then
we have problems.

 As it turns out this is not safe and we end up with many exceptions, mostly down in the ZlibDecompressor
library.  Curiously if you turn on the data cache for the table being scanned then the errors
> After much hunting it turns out that the real bug is in the BoundedRangeFileInputStream.
 The read() method therein appropriately synchronizes on the underlying FSDataInputStream,
however the available() method does not.  Adding similar synchronization on that stream fixes
the issues.  On a side note, the available() call is only invoked within the hadoop CompressionInputStream
for use in the getPos() call.  That call does not appear to actually be used at least in this
