Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-11398) RetryUpToMaximumTimeWithFixedSleep needs to behave more accurately
Date Tue, 14 Jul 2015 23:15:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-11398?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14627255#comment-14627255

Li Lu commented on HADOOP-11398:
--------------------------------

BTW, [~ajisakaa], since I've already given some thought on the original patch (and the whole
issue), I think a little bit more discussion would definitely save a lot of repeated work
here. If there's an appropriate fix for this issue I can certainly make the change and finish
it.

> RetryUpToMaximumTimeWithFixedSleep now inherits RetryUpToMaximumCountWithFixedSleep and
just acts as a wrapper to decide maxRetries. The current implementation uses (maxTime / sleepTime)
as the number of maxRetries. This is fine if the actual for each retry is significantly less
than the sleep time, but it becomes less accurate if each retry takes comparable amount of
time as the sleep time. The problem gets worse when there are underlying retries. 
> We may want to use timers inside RetryUpToMaximumTimeWithFixedSleep to perform accurate
timing.
