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 14:03:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4659?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12648600#action_12648600

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-4659:

The two patches in here do slightly different things, and need to be merged. 

-my one left the class of an exception alone (and, for ConnectExceptions, inserted the host
and port into the text, as with HADOOP-3844.
-Hairong's stopped some exceptions getting swallowed during setupIOstreams

I think both are needed, so will apply Hairong's to my code and generate a combined patch.

I can test this by deploying an orphan task tracker, but in that situation, once the code
is fixed, the TaskTracker will spin forever. If a timeout on the retries could be provided,
we could add a test that verified the tracker ran for 20-30s before timing out and relaying
the exception. In production you'd set the timeout to a number of hours or forever, obviously.

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.
