Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-11349) MerkleTree mismatch when multiple range tombstones exists for the same partition and interval
Date Fri, 20 May 2016 16:58:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-11349?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15293709#comment-15293709
] 

Fabien Rousseau commented on CASSANDRA-11349:
---------------------------------------------

Ok, it appears that the initial idea by [~blambov] is sufficient (after having done some basic
testing for our 4th cluster).

Nevertheless, I'm surprised that we seems to be the only one affected by this issue. Maybe
it's because it took us some time to realize it and investigate it, and there was no clear
sign apart from big streams during repairs + data set size increasing too fast. So this may
explain why not many people reported it, but there may be others affected out in the wild.
That's why it's probably best to try to fix most of it (if it's not possible to fix it entirely),
but I also understand that the less changes there are, the less risky it is...

So I'm good with it either partially fixed or mostly fixed.

> We observed that repair, for some of our clusters, streamed a lot of data and many partitions
were "out of sync".
> Moreover, the read repair mismatch ratio is around 3% on those clusters, which is really
high.
> After investigation, it appears that, if two range tombstones exists for a partition
for the same range/interval, they're both included in the merkle tree computation.
> But, if for some reason, on another node, the two range tombstones were already compacted
into a single range tombstone, this will result in a merkle tree difference.
> Currently, this is clearly bad because MerkleTree differences are dependent on compactions
(and if a partition is deleted and created multiple times, the only way to ensure that repair
"works correctly"/"don't overstream data" is to major compact before each repair... which
is not really feasible).
> Below is a list of steps allowing to easily reproduce this case:
> {noformat}
> ccm create test -v 2.1.13 -n 2 -s
> ccm node1 cqlsh
> CREATE KEYSPACE test_rt WITH replication = {'class': 'SimpleStrategy', 'replication_factor':
2};
> USE test_rt;
> CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS table1 (
>     c1 text,
>     c2 text,
>     c3 float,
>     c4 float,
>     PRIMARY KEY ((c1), c2)
> );
> INSERT INTO table1 (c1, c2, c3, c4) VALUES ( 'a', 'b', 1, 2);
> DELETE FROM table1 WHERE c1 = 'a' AND c2 = 'b';
> ctrl ^d
> # now flush only one of the two nodes
> ccm node1 flush 
> ccm node1 cqlsh
> USE test_rt;
> INSERT INTO table1 (c1, c2, c3, c4) VALUES ( 'a', 'b', 1, 3);
> DELETE FROM table1 WHERE c1 = 'a' AND c2 = 'b';
> ctrl ^d
> ccm node1 repair
> # now grep the log and observe that there was some inconstencies detected between nodes
(while it shouldn't have detected any)
> ccm node1 showlog | grep "out of sync"
> {noformat}
> Consequences of this are a costly repair, accumulating many small SSTables (up to thousands
for a rather short period of time when using VNodes, the time for compaction to absorb those
small files), but also an increased size on disk.
