Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-4646) createNNProxyWithClientProtocol ignores configured timeout value
Date Thu, 28 Mar 2013 18:49:17 GMT
Jagane Sundar created HDFS-4646:
-----------------------------------

             Summary: createNNProxyWithClientProtocol ignores configured timeout value
                 Key: HDFS-4646
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4646
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: namenode
    Affects Versions: 2.0.3-alpha, 3.0.0, 2.0.4-alpha
         Environment: Linux
            Reporter: Jagane Sundar
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 3.0.0, 2.0.4-alpha


The Client RPC I/O timeout mechanism appears to be configured by two core-site.xml paramters:

1. A boolean ipc.client.ping
2. A numeric value ipc.ping.interval

If ipc.client.ping is true, then we send a RPC ping every ipc.ping.interval milliseconds
If ipc.client.ping is false, then ipc.ping.interval turns into the socket timeout value.

The bug here is that while creating a Non HA proxy, the configured timeout value is ignored,
and 0 is passed in. 0 is taken to mean 'wait forever' and the client RPC socket never times
out.

Note that this bug is reproducible only in the case where the NN machine dies, i.e. the TCP
stack with the NN IP address stops responding completely. The code does not take this path
when you do a 'kill -9' of the NN process, since there is a TCP stack that is alive and sends
out a TCP RST to the client, and that results in a socket error (not a timeout).

The fix is to pass in the correct configured value for timeout by calling Client.getTimeout(conf)
instead of passing in 0.
