Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2541) For a sufficiently large value of blocks, the DN Scanner may request a random number with a negative seed value.

----------------------------------------------

Colin, good point.  The fix is incorrect.  Do you want to create a JIRA?

> Running off 0.20-security, I noticed that one could get the following exception when
scanners are used:
> {code}
> DataXceiver 
> java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: n must be positive 
> at java.util.Random.nextInt(Random.java:250) 
> at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.datanode.DataBlockScanner.getNewBlockScanTime(DataBlockScanner.java:251)

> at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.datanode.DataBlockScanner.addBlock(DataBlockScanner.java:268)

> at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.datanode.DataXceiver.writeBlock(DataXceiver.java:432)

> at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.datanode.DataXceiver.run(DataXceiver.java:122)
> {code}
> This is cause the period, determined in the DataBlockScanner (0.20+) or BlockPoolSliceScanner
(0.23+), is cast to an integer before its sent to a Random.nextInt(...) call. For sufficiently
large values of the long 'period', the casted integer may be negative. This is not accounted
for. I'll attach a sample test that shows this possibility with the numbers.
> We should ensure we do a Math.abs(...) before we send it to the Random.nextInt(...) call
to avoid this.
> With this bug, the maximum # of blocks a scanner may hold in its blocksMap without opening
up the chance for beginning this exception (intermittent, as blocks continue to grow) would
be 3582718.
