Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-1752) repair leaving FDs unclosed
Date Tue, 30 Nov 2010 18:52:13 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-1752:

can't we leave the timing and logging code inside the Helper compaction method to reduce duplication
in its callers?

> "We noticed that after a `nodetool repair` was ran, several of our nodes reported high
disk usage; -- even one node hit 100% disk usage. After a restart of that node, disk usage
drop instantly by 80 gigabytes -- well that was confusing, but we quickly formed the theory
that Cassandra must of been holding open references to deleted file descriptors.
> "Later, i found this node as an example, it is using about 8-10 gigabytes more than it
should be -- 118 gigabytes reported by df, yet du reports only 106 gigabytes in the cassandra
directory (nothing else on the mahcine). As you can see from the lsof listing, it is holding
open FDs to files that no longer exist on the filesystem, and there are no open streams or
as far as I can tell other reasons for the deleted sstable to be open.
> "This seems to be related to running a repair, as we haven't seen it in any other situations
> A quick check of FileStreamTask shows that the obvious base is covered:

> So it seems that either the transfer loop is never finishing to get to that finally block
(in which case why isn't it showing up in outbound streams?) or something else is the problem.
