Subject [jira] [Updated] (HDFS-3025) Automatic log sync shouldn't happen inside logEdit path

Todd Lipcon updated HDFS-3025:
------------------------------

    Status: Open  (was: Patch Available)

Strange that this is failing on Hudson when it passes locally for me. I want to look at this
again with a fresh mind next week.

> 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)
