Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6097) nodetool repair randomly hangs.
Date Wed, 25 Sep 2013 20:40:02 GMT


Brandon Williams commented on CASSANDRA-6097:

It took a few thousands of iterations to reproduce, but it did happen (on my own machine,
not in AWS or using the AMI)  Netstat shows one connection from nodetool to the jmx port that
stays connected, and another one that connects, gets disconnected after a short while, then
the process repeats.  This sounds like jmx doing it's double connection dance, but whatever
reason the server rejects the second one.  I'm not sure there's anything we can do about this
except say what we already know: jmx kinda sucks.

One odd thing I did notice occasionally get printed straight to stdout/err while running the

WARNING: The server has decided to close this client connection.

However it didn't correlate to the iteration that hung.

> nodetool repair randomly hangs. This is not the same issue where repair hangs if a stream
is disrupted. This can be reproduced on a single-node cluster where no streaming takes place,
so I think this may be a JMX connection or timeout issue. Thread dumps show that nodetool
is waiting on a JMX response and there are no repair-related threads running in Cassandra.
Nodetool main thread waiting for JMX response:
> {code}
> "main" prio=5 tid=7ffa4b001800 nid=0x10aedf000 in Object.wait() [10aede000]
>    java.lang.Thread.State: WAITING (on object monitor)
> 	at java.lang.Object.wait(Native Method)
> 	- waiting on <7f90d62e8> (a org.apache.cassandra.utils.SimpleCondition)
> 	at java.lang.Object.wait(
> 	at org.apache.cassandra.utils.SimpleCondition.await(
> 	- locked <7f90d62e8> (a org.apache.cassandra.utils.SimpleCondition)
> 	at
> 	at

> 	at
> {code}
> When nodetool hangs, it does not print out the following message:
> "Starting repair command #XX, repairing 1 ranges for keyspace XXX"
> However, Cassandra logs that repair in system.log:
> 1380033480.95  INFO [Thread-154] 10:38:00,882 Starting repair command #X, repairing X
ranges for keyspace XXX
> This suggests that the repair command was received by Cassandra but the connection then
failed and nodetool didn't receive a response.
> Obviously, running repair on a single-node cluster is pointless but it's the easiest
way to demonstrate this problem. The customer who reported this has also seen the issue on
his real multi-node cluster.
> Steps to reproduce:
> Note: I reproduced this once on the official DataStax AMI with DSE 3.1.3 (Cassandra 1.2.6+patches).
 I was unable to reproduce on my Mac using the same version, and subsequent attempts to reproduce
it on the AMI were unsuccessful. The customer says he is able is able to reliably reproduce
on his Mac using DSE 3.1.3 and occasionally reproduce it on his real cluster. 
> 1) Deploy an AMI using the DataStax AMI at
> 2) Create a test keyspace
> {code}
> create keyspace test WITH replication = {'class': 'SimpleStrategy', 'replication_factor':
> {code}
> 3) Run an endless loop that runs nodetool repair repeatedly:
> {code}
> while true; do nodetool repair -pr test; done
> {code}
> 4) Wait until repair hangs. It may take many tries; the behavior is random.
