Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-4751) Some WALs don't replicate due to lacking a createdTime entry
Date Wed, 06 Dec 2017 22:29:00 GMT


Adam J Shook commented on ACCUMULO-4751:

[~elserj] Not too certain if we even need that block of code to update metadata for unused
WALs in {{DataFileManager}}?  The solutions I see now would be to 

1. Use {{StatusUtil.openWithUnknownLength(System.currentTimeMillis())}} here to add a {{createdTime}}
to the metadata
2. Add the handling logic in the {{StatusMaker}} to set the {{createdTime}} to the WAL to
the HDFS timestamp (#2 above) 
3. Delete this block entirely (it might be needed at other times?  I don't know the pipeline
at this level to know if we need to flag unused WALs)

>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 1.7.3, 1.8.1

> From what I can tell, the below error is thrown when no data for a particular table is
written to a WAL, but the file is closed.  This would be because the {{Status}} entry from
the {{StatusUtil}} for {{fileClosed}} is pre-built and therefore does not have a {{createdTime}}.
 This prevents a WAL from being replicated until a {{createdTime}} entry is added manually.
> From the Accumulo master:
> {code}
> Status record ([begin: 0 end: 0 infiniteEnd: true closed: true]) for hdfs://namenode:9000/accumulo/wal/
in table 7l was written to metadata table which lacked createdTime
> {code}
> There are two solutions I have in mind:
> 1. Update the {{StatusUtil}} such that every returned {{Status}} object sets the {{createdTime}}
to {{System.currentTimeMillis}} if not explicitly given.
> 2. Update the Accumulo Master to set the {{createdTime}} to the WAL's modification time
in HDFS if the WAL is closed but there is no {{createdTime}}.
