Subject [jira] [Updated] (HDFS-4816) transitionToActive blocks if the SBN is doing checkpoint image transfer
Date Tue, 14 May 2013 02:35:16 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4816?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Andrew Wang updated HDFS-4816:
------------------------------

    Attachment: hdfs-4816-1.patch

Here's a patch making it into a thread. I've tested this manually with a pseudo-distributed
HA cluster, and am able to transition from standby to active without blocking on the transfer.

Making a unit test for this is proving difficult. Posting it up for now sans test.

> The NN and SBN do this dance during checkpoint image transfer with nested HTTP GETs via
{{HttpURLConnection}}. When an admin does a {{-transitionToActive}} during this transfer,
part of that is interrupting an ongoing checkpoint so we can transition immediately.
> However, the {{thread.interrupt()}} in {{StandbyCheckpointer#stop}} gets swallowed by
{{connection.getResponseCode()}} in {{TransferFsImage#doGetUrl}}. None of the methods in HttpURLConnection
throw InterruptedException, so we need to do something else (perhaps HttpClient [1]):
