Hi chris
Thanks for the comments
I filed the jira https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-9046 and given an initial patch
to retry on failure
We will further discuss in JIRA

Hello Nijel,

Thank you for reporting this.  I think it is invalid for a DataNode process in an HA deployment
ever to be running with only one of its BPServiceActor threads alive.  As you observed, this
can lead to a condition in which a DataNode is registered with one NameNode but not the other.
 After an HA failover, it will appear that the DataNode has vanished from the cluster, and
the only resolution is to restart that DataNode.  In extreme cases, if this happens for multiple
DataNodes, then the cluster will appear to experience a massive loss of capacity, under-replicated
blocks, and a storm of re-replication activity.

HDFS-2882 and HDFS-7714 demonstrated similar symptoms, but the root cause was different. 
I encourage you to file a new HDFS JIRA with your findings, because it's a slightly different
bug.  We can continue discussion of proposed solutions there.  At a high level, I think we'll
need to explore either aborting the whole DataNode process or attempting to recover the failed
BPServiceActor thread.  I'm not yet sure which approach is preferable.

Hi all

I got an issue from one of my site.
The cluster is ins HA mode and each DN having only one block pool.

The issue is once after switch one DN is missing from the current active NN.
Upon analysis I found that there is one exception in BPOfferService.run()

After this particular BPOfferService is down during the run time.
And this particular NN will not have the details of this DN

Similar issues are discussed in the following JIRAs

Can we retry in this case also with a larger interval instead of shutting down this BPOfferService
I think since this exceptions can occur randomly in DN it is not good to keep the DN running
where some NN does not have the info !

Please give your suggestions.
