Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-3025) Automatic log sync shouldn't happen inside logEdit path
Date Tue, 28 Feb 2012 19:37:46 GMT
Automatic log sync shouldn't happen inside logEdit path

                 Key: HDFS-3025
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3025
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: name-node, performance
    Affects Versions: 0.23.3
            Reporter: Todd Lipcon
            Assignee: Todd Lipcon

HDFS-3020 fixes the "automatic log sync" functionality so that, when logEdits is called without
log sync, it eventually triggers a sync. That sync ends up being inline, though, which means
the FSN lock is usually held during it. This causes a bunch of threads to pile up.

Instead, we should have it just set a "syncNeeded" flag and trigger a sync from another thread
which isn't holding the lock (or from the same thread using a "logSyncIfNeeded" call).

(credit to the FB branch for this idea)
