Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7380) Common portion of HDFS-1973
Date Thu, 07 Jul 2011 18:58:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7380?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13061489#comment-13061489

Eli Collins commented on HADOOP-7380:

Latest patch looks good.

The following is implicit in the change, but I think it's worth stating here in the jira explicitly:
in FailoverOnNetworkExceptionRetry#shouldRetry we don't fail-over and retry if we're making
a non-idempotent call and there's an IOException or SocketException that's not Connect, NoRouteToHost,
UnknownHost, or Standby. The rationale of course is that the operation may have reached the
server and retrying elsewhere could leave us in an insconsistent state. This means if a client
doing a create/delete which gets a SocketTimeoutException (which is an IOE) or an EOF SocketException
the exception will be thrown all the way up to the caller of FileSystem/FileContext. That's
reasonable because only the user of the API at this level has sufficient knoweldge of how
to handle the failure, eg if they get such an exception after issuing a delete they can check
if the file still exists and if so re-issue the delete (however they may also not want to
do this, and FileContext doesn't know w

Minor comments:
* Need to mark the new Interfaces with @InterfaceStability.Evolving
* The new create methods in RetryProxy need javadocs (or you could move the javadoc to your
new methods and add the FailoverProxyProvider param if you feel we're OD'ing on javadocs here)
* @param lines shouldn't end with a period (eg RetryPolicy and FailOverProxyProvider)
* Should RetryAction be in RetryPolicy or do you expect there to be a class here eventually?
* Wonder if the LOG.info in RetryInvocationFailure for the fail-over case should be a warning.

I think this change is sufficiently decoupled from HDFS-1973 that we can check it into trunk
before we branch for HA.
