>    Affects Versions: 2.5.1
>            Reporter: Chris Li

> Our namenode pauses for 12-60 seconds several times every hour. During these pauses,
no new requests can come in.
> Around the time of pauses, we have log messages such as:
> 2014-10-22 13:24:22,688 WARN org.apache.hadoop.security.Groups: Potential performance
problem: getGroups(user=xxxxx) took 34507 milliseconds.
> The current theory is:
> 1. Groups has a cache that is refreshed periodically. Each entry has a cache expiry.
> 2. When a cache entry expires, multiple threads can see this expiration and then we have
a thundering herd effect where all these threads hit the wire and overwhelm our LDAP servers
(we are using ShellBasedUnixGroupsMapping with sssd, how this happens has yet to be established)
> 3. group resolution queries begin to take longer, I've observed it taking 1.2 seconds
instead of the usual 0.01-0.03 seconds when measuring in the shell `time groups myself`
> 4. If there is mutual exclusion somewhere along this path, a 1 second pause could lead
to a 60 second pause as all the threads compete for the resource. The exact cause hasn't been
> Potential solutions include:
> 1. Increasing group cache time, which will make the issue less frequent
> 2. Rolling evictions of the cache so we prevent the large spike in LDAP queries
> 3. Gate the cache refresh so that only one thread is responsible for refreshing the cache
