Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-8640) DU thread transient failures propagate to callers
Date Thu, 02 Aug 2012 07:29:02 GMT
Todd Lipcon created HADOOP-8640:

             Summary: DU thread transient failures propagate to callers
                 Key: HADOOP-8640
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8640
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: fs, io
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-alpha
            Reporter: Todd Lipcon

When running some stress tests, I saw a failure where the DURefreshThread failed due to the
filesystem changing underneath it:

org.apache.hadoop.util.Shell$ExitCodeException: du: cannot access `/data/4/dfs/dn/current/BP-1928785663-':
No such file or directory
(the block was probably finalized while the du process was running, which caused it to fail)

The next block write, then, called {{getUsed()}}, and the exception got propagated causing
the write to fail. Since it was a pseudo-distributed cluster, the client was unable to pick
a different node to write to and failed.

The current behavior of propagating the exception to the next (and only the next) caller doesn't
seem well-thought-out.
