Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-5933) Make it harder to accidentally close a shared DFSClient
Date Thu, 28 May 2009 15:59:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5933?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12714027#action_12714027
] 

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-5933:
----------------------------------------

Some options
# if the log is at debug level, generate an exception in close() and save it until the next
checkOpen() call is reached -and use that exception as the nested cause of the exception that
is raised there.
# some complicated reference count mechanism with its own leakage problems
# add the ability to reopen things if they were in cache and got purged. 

I've done the first one of these to track down problems, and while I now know where I shouldn't
be calling close(), there's a risk that my code will now leak filesystem clients.

> Every so often I get stack traces telling me that DFSClient is closed, usually in {{org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.DFSClient.checkOpen()
}} . The root cause of this is usually that one thread has closed a shared fsclient while
another thread still has a reference to it. If the other thread then asks for a new client
it will get one -and the cache repopulated- but if has one already, then I get to see a stack
trace. 
> It's effectively a race condition between clients in different threads.
