Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-1568) Improve DataXceiver error logging
Date Fri, 20 May 2011 18:36:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1568?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13036988#comment-13036988

Tsz Wo (Nicholas), SZE commented on HDFS-1568:

> You're correct. Should I just include e.toString() or e.getMessage() there?

Probably {{e.getMessage()}}.  Please run some tests to see how it looks after the patch.

> I think there are a couple of other places where the exception might get printed more
than once. Should those be fixed as part of this jira, or filed separately?

It would be great if you can fix it separately.

> Finally, do you know why some stack traces are printed out by using stringifyException()
and others are printed by just passing the exception to the LOG.error() function?

If I remember correctly, the previous log API did not have methods for printing exceptions,
i.e. the only have {{log.info(message)}} but not {{log.info(message, exception)}}. So we have
to use {{stringifyException()}}.  From now on, we should not use {{stringifyException()}}.

> In supporting customers we often see things like SocketTimeoutExceptions or EOFExceptions
coming from DataXceiver, but the logging isn't very good. For example, if we get an IOE while
setting up a connection to the downstream mirror in writeBlock, the IP of the downstream mirror
isn't logged on the DN side.
