Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-3099) Possible bug in interaction with buffer manager causing pages not to be freed on rollback to savepoint
Date Wed, 03 Oct 2007 09:49:50 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3099?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Knut Anders Hatlen updated DERBY-3099:

    Attachment: failfast.diff

When T_RawStoreFactory.P042() fails, a finally clause tries to unlatch an already unlatched
page and hides the actual error. The failure in the finally clause is not immediately picked
up by the test framework and the test therefore hangs until it times out after one hour.

The attached patch makes the cleanup code check whether the page is latched before unlatching
it. This makes the test fail faster if it fails, and the real error is not hidden by the error
in the cleanup code. The patch also removes an unused variable from the test case.

Committed revision 581544.

> I noticed this strange behaviour when I was working on DERBY-2911. It seems like the
result of test case P042 in unit/T_RawStoreFactory.unit is dependent on the actual contents
of the buffer manager (which pages have been evicted, which free entries have been reused
and so on). I'm not sure if this is a bug in the test or somewhere in the code, or if this
is expected behaviour, but it sounds a bit suspicious.
> For instance, commenting out all the test cases preceeding P042 makes P042 fail, even
though P042 creates a new container so that it should not be affected by any of the previous
test cases. Also, commenting out a space optimization in Clock.findFreeItem() so that freed
entries are not reused except when rotateClock() is called on a full cache to find a victim,
causes the test case to fail. A third way to make it fail, is to vary the scan direction when
looking for a free entry to reuse in the new buffer manager (ConcurrentCache). If the scan
is disabled or walks the clock from the beginning to the end, the test fails, but if the clock
is scanned backwards, it passes.
> The code that fails in the test, is
> 			c = t_util.t_openContainer(t, segment, cid, true);
> 			Page checkNextPage = t_util.t_addPage(c);
> 			if (checkNextPage.getPageNumber() == nextPageNumber)
> 				throw T_Fail.testFailMsg(
> 					"expect some pages to be freed by update rollback");
> The expected page number is 2, and the actual page number is 7.
> Before this, a large row has been inserted on page 1 and overflows to page 2, 3, 4, 5
and 6. Also, page 7 has been added manually before all the updates were rolled back so that
the pages from 2 up to 7 should be unallocated. Page 7 is then added and removed, and the
transaction is committed. After reopening the container, the test expects the pages from 2
up to 7 to be free, and that t_addPage() should allocate page number 2.
