Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4882) Namenode LeaseManager checkLeases() runs into infinite loop
Date Mon, 17 Nov 2014 08:00:54 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4882?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14214398#comment-14214398
] 

Colin Patrick McCabe commented on HDFS-4882:
--------------------------------------------

[~yzhangal]: backing up a little bit, the overall problem here seems to be that we are unwilling
to "recover the lease" for an overdue lease when the replication is too low.  Right?  And
then we get in this infinite loop, because {{checkLeases}} assumes that all expired leases
will be recovered rather than lingering around.

Is there any reason we can't simply recover the lease anyway, even though the minimal replication
has not been met?  There are a lot of cases where we just can't get to the minimum replication
(i.e. 1-node cluster, etc.).  I don't see a lot of value in letting these leases linger forever.
 Our lease expiry period is REALLY long, so if we can't replicate in that period, maybe it's
time to throw in the towel.  Am I missing something here?  What do you guys think?

> Scenario:
> 1. cluster with 4 DNs
> 2. the size of the file to be written is a little more than one block
> 3. write the first block to 3 DNs, DN1->DN2->DN3
> 4. all the data packets of first block is successfully acked and the client sets the
pipeline stage to PIPELINE_CLOSE, but the last packet isn't sent out
> 5. DN2 and DN3 are down
> 6. client recovers the pipeline, but no new DN is added to the pipeline because of the
current pipeline stage is PIPELINE_CLOSE
> 7. client continuously writes the last block, and try to close the file after written
all the data
> 8. NN finds that the penultimate block doesn't has enough replica(our dfs.namenode.replication.min=2),
and the client's close runs into indefinite loop(HDFS-2936), and at the same time, NN makes
the last block's state to COMPLETE
> 9. shutdown the client
> 10. the file's lease exceeds hard limit
> 11. LeaseManager realizes that and begin to do lease recovery by call fsnamesystem.internalReleaseLease()
> 12. but the last block's state is COMPLETE, and this triggers lease manager's infinite
loop and prints massive logs like this:
