Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8217) Edge case split-brain race in ZK-based auto-failover
Date Sat, 31 Mar 2012 00:09:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8217?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13242874#comment-13242874
] 

Bikas Saha commented on HADOOP-8217:
------------------------------------

bq.4(failure case): if NN1.transitionToStandby() times out or fails, the non-graceful fencing
is initiated (same as in existing HA code for the last several months)

Can you please point me to the existing HA code for last several months? I thought we have
manual HA in which admin does fencing.

> As discussed in HADOOP-8206, the current design for automatic failover has the following
race:
> - ZKFC1 gets active lock
> - ZKFC1 is about to send transitionToActive() and machine freezes (eg GC pause + swapping)
> - ZKFC1 loses its ZK lock, ZKFC2 gets ZK lock
> - ZKFC2 calls transitionToStandby on NN1, and transitions NN2 to active
> - ZKFC1 wakes up from pause, calls transitionToActive(), now we have a bad situation
> This is rare, since it requires ZKFC1 to freeze longer than its ZK session timeout, but
worth fixing, since the results can be disastrous.
