Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-3590) Print a WARN if the edit log sync period takes more than X time units
Date Mon, 02 Jul 2012 17:57:22 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3590?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13405170#comment-13405170

Todd Lipcon commented on HDFS-3590:

Nice idea. Per-directory metrics would also be a nice improvement, but the log makes good
sense. I'd warn at a much earlier threshold, like 5 seconds.

> If an logSync operation, which happens for calls such as FS#create() after the edit has
been made at the NN metadata, takes longer than X seconds (I'd say if it took more than a
minute, there's something really wrong with the volume it probably got stuck on), we should
log a WARN with the volume that may have particularly caused it. This helps track down, if
an NN runs with multiple NFS volumes, which particular volume may have caused it, as there's
no per-NN-dir metrics of any kind.
> I ran into a situation today where a hard-mounted NFS point hung for over X minutes but
there was no indication in NN's logs after it recovered (recovering so late caused its own
slew of issues for which I'll file other improvement JIRAs) that such an event happened, aside
of the Sync (Journal Sync) metric spiking with the elapsed sync time value rising up. A log
would have helped save time investigating this, and possibly would have also pin-pointed the
bad location more accurately.
