Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-12508) delete fails with exception when lease is held on blob
Date Mon, 26 Oct 2015 16:26:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-12508?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14974500#comment-14974500

Chris Nauroth commented on HADOOP-12508:
----------------------------------------

Hello [~gouravk].

Thank you for posting this patch.  However, I don't see how this could really fix the problem.
 If a {{delete}} operation is failing because of another concurrent process holding a lease,
then I expect simply calling {{acquireLease}} immediately would fail again, because it's impossible
for 2 clients to hold a lease on the same blob at the same time.  Perhaps it would appear
to work sometimes if sufficient time passed for the other process to release its lease, but
this would be a non-deterministic race condition.

Has the patch been tested?

> The delete function as implemented by AzureNativeFileSystem store attempts delete without
a lease. In most cases this works but in the case of a dangling lease resulting out of say
a process killed and leaving a lease dangling for a small period a delete attempted during
this period simply crashes. This fix addresses the situation by re-attempting the delete after
a lease acqusition in this case
