Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-1907) BlockMissingException upon concurrent read and write: reader was doing file position read while writer is doing write without hflush
Date Fri, 03 Jun 2011 15:33:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1907?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13043405#comment-13043405

Ah.  I didn't go further up the callstack to see that the length is already being trimmed,
so as you say, the assert shouldn't happen even when all blocks are finalized.  Looks good!
 Your change does, however some of the surrounding code appears specious...

> BlockMissingException is thrown under this test scenario:
> Two different processes doing concurrent file r/w: one read and the other write on the
same file
>   - writer keep doing file write
>   - reader doing position file read from beginning of the file to the visible end of
file, repeatedly
> The reader is basically doing:
>   byteRead = in.read(currentPosition, buffer, 0, byteToReadThisRound);
> where CurrentPostion=0, buffer is a byte array buffer, byteToReadThisRound = 1024*10000;
> Usually it does not fail right away. I have to read, close file, re-open the same file
a few times to create the problem. I'll pose a test program to repro this problem after I've
cleaned up a bit my current test program.
