Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-4659) Root cause of connection failure is being lost to code that uses it for delaying startup
Date Tue, 18 Nov 2008 20:09:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4659?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12648734#action_12648734

Hairong Kuang commented on HADOOP-4659:

On the second thought, throwing IOException from setupIOstreams is not a complete solution.
While one RPC is in the middle of setupIOstreams, there might be a different call that uses
the same connection and is about to setupIOstreams. If the first setup gets a ConnectException,
the second call will end up seeing a closed connection and ConnectException gets delivered
to call in call.error. This means that ConnectException will be wrapped.

I am thinking to solve the problem using my initial solution: check root cause in waitForProxy.

As for testing, I like Steve's idea. How about adding an API wait for proxy with a timeout
to RPC. The current API waitForProxy could use a timeout with the max long value.

hence the outside code, the one that looks for that root cause, isn't working as expected.
The results is you can't bring up a task tracker before job tracker, and probably the same
for a datanode before a  namenode. The change that triggered this is not yet located, I had
thought it was HADOOP-3844 but I no longer believe this is the case.
