Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4380) Opening a file for read before writer writes a block causes NPE
Date Fri, 11 Jan 2013 03:04:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4380?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13550756#comment-13550756

Hudson commented on HDFS-4380:

Integrated in HBase-0.94 #722 (See [https://builds.apache.org/job/HBase-0.94/722/])
    HBASE-7530  [replication] Work around HDFS-4380 else we get NPEs
HBASE-7531  [replication] NPE in SequenceFileLogReader because
            ReplicationSource doesn't nullify the reader
HBASE-7534  [replication] TestReplication.queueFailover can fail
            because HBaseTestingUtility.createMultiRegions is dangerous (Revision 1431769)

     Result = SUCCESS

> JD Cryans found this issue: it seems like, if you open a file for read immediately after
it's been created by the writer, after a block has been allocated, but before the block is
created on the DNs, then you can end up with the following NPE:
> java.lang.NullPointerException
>        at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.DFSClient$DFSInputStream.updateBlockInfo(DFSClient.java:1885)
>        at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.DFSClient$DFSInputStream.openInfo(DFSClient.java:1858)
>        at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.DFSClient$DFSInputStream.<init>(DFSClient.java:1834)
>        at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.DFSClient.open(DFSClient.java:578)
>        at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.DistributedFileSystem.open(DistributedFileSystem.java:154)
> This seems to be because {{getBlockInfo}} returns a null block when the DN doesn't yet
have the replica. The client should probably either fall back to a different replica or treat
it as zero-length.
