Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-4542) Tablet left in bad state after bulk import timeout
Date Thu, 22 Dec 2016 22:42:58 GMT
John Vines created ACCUMULO-4542:

             Summary: Tablet left in bad state after bulk import timeout
                 Key: ACCUMULO-4542
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.7.2
            Reporter: John Vines

On a cluster we saw a large amount of network issues at one point. Cause still has not been
pinpointed, but it did result in us seeing a lot of rpc exceptions and the like.

While these network issues happened, a bulk import was kicked off for a single file. This
single file was assigned to two tablets (which both happened to be on the same server). Unfortunately,
in the 3 attempts bulk import made to assign this file to this tablet, there were 3 rpc exceptions
due to a socket timeout. After the three failures the bulk import went ahead and moved this
file to the failures directory and carried on.

Unfortunately, this file was actually assigned to the tablet succesfully on the first attempt.
The following 2 attempts logged about how the server had already been assigned this file.
It was shortly afterward a query came in (and then later major compactions) which then complained
about how the file could not be found because the bulk import moved it to the failures directory.

I think in this event we need some sort of final validation the record didn't end up in the
metadata table before we move it to the failures.
