Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-1262) Failed pipeline creation during append leaves lease hanging on NN
Date Sun, 22 Aug 2010 05:27:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1262?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12901135#action_12901135

dhruba borthakur commented on HDFS-1262:
----------------------------------------

I agree with sam that we we can safely introduce a new RPC without worrying about back compatibility
with 0.20 or 0.21. As of now, new versions of hadoop are not compatible with older versions.

> Ryan Rawson came upon this nasty bug in HBase cluster testing. What happened was the
following:
> 1) File's original writer died
> 2) Recovery client tried to open file for append - looped for a minute or so until soft
lease expired, then append call initiated recovery
> 3) Recovery completed successfully
> 4) Recovery client calls append again, which succeeds on the NN
> 5) For some reason, the block recovery that happens at the start of append pipeline creation
failed on all datanodes 6 times, causing the append() call to throw an exception back to HBase
master. HBase assumed the file wasn't open and put it back on a queue to try later
> 6) Some time later, it tried append again, but the lease was still assigned to the same
DFS client, so it wasn't able to recover.
> The recovery failure in step 5 is a separate issue, but the problem for this JIRA is
that the NN can think it failed to open a file for append when the NN thinks the writer holds
a lease. Since the writer keeps renewing its lease, recovery never happens, and no one can
open or recover the file until the DFS client shuts down.
