Subject Re: Bloom filter thread failure errors
Date Thu, 05 Dec 2013 00:29:29 GMT
Hi Eric,
Thanks for your reply, I'm just now getting back to this as I had more of
these the past two days. No tserver failures or master halts. With previous
errors we were still experiencing network issues that were indeed taking
tabletservers down, but now that they fixed a bad line card in a switch
that had been rebooting itself (but not failing over), those issues are all
gone (finally, knock on wood).

Now that I see them again in isolation with no other errors, in the main
tserver log these bloom-loader thread failures appear to happen out of the
blue with no other issues surrounding them.

However, I just checked the debug log and see they are occurring right at
the time of a Major Compaction.  E.g. from one of the tservers debug log:

2013-12-03 11:48:14,738 [tabletserver.Tablet] DEBUG: MajC initiate lock
0.00 secs, wait 0.00 secs
2013-12-03 11:48:14,739 [tabletserver.Tablet] DEBUG: Starting MajC 2;f;d
(NORMAL) [/t-0000aa9/C0000zmf.rf, <several more rfiles listed> ] -->
2013-12-03 11:48:14,780 [file.BloomFilterLayer] ERROR: Thread
"bloom-loader-41" died File /accumulo/tables/2/t-0000aa9/C0000zmf.rf is

The rest of the stack looks like what I posted earlier. The very next debug
log message after the bloom loader exception is shows that the Compaction
completed successfully in 0.112 seconds.

So it looks like the bloom loader is trying to open an rfile 41ms after a
compaction started, and the file was likely just compacted during that gap
between the calls. If that's the case, can this error be safely ignored?
