Subject [jira] [Updated] (HADOOP-7346) Send back nicer error to clients using outdated IPC version
Date Wed, 01 Jun 2011 01:19:47 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7346?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Todd Lipcon updated HADOOP-7346:

    Attachment: hadoop-7346.txt

I manually tested this patch using an 0.18.3 client, 0.20.0 client, and CDH3 client (which
has the same IPC stack as 0.20.20x series)

I also looped an old client for a few minutes hitting the new server, then took a jstack on
the new server, to make sure there weren't any thread leaks.

Unfortunately it's not easy to automatically test it since we can't load old versions of the
IPC clients within the context of a unit test.

>    Affects Versions: 0.22.0

> When an older Hadoop version tries to contact a newer Hadoop version across an IPC protocol
version bump, the client currently just gets a non-useful error message like "EOFException".
> Instead, the IPC server code can speak just enough of prior IPC protocols to send back
a "fatal" message indicating the version mismatch.
