Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4882) Namenode LeaseManager checkLeases() runs into infinite loop
Date Mon, 17 Nov 2014 18:03:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4882?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14214914#comment-14214914

Yongjun Zhang commented on HDFS-4882:
-------------------------------------

 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? 
{quote}
The core problem of the infinite loop reported with this jira is that when penultimate block
is COMMITTEED and last block is COMPLETE, infinite loop would  occur, because of the loop
in {{LeaseManager#checkLeases}} does not move on to next entry, and {{FSNamesystem#internalReleaseLease}}
does not release lease. 

The reason that the penultimate is COMMITTED could be that minimal replication is not reached,
but what could be even more likely here is: 
- the {{LeaseManager#checkLeases}} happens to be run first, it acquires  the FSnamesystem.writeLock
in, 
- a block report that has already reached NN (or will reach NN shortly) would help satisfying
the minimal replication if processed, but this block report won't be processed, because the
block report processing thread is blocked, waiting for the writeLock.

This is the root cause of the problem here. I think once this is resolved, the block that
didn't reach minimal replication will be replicated by the replication monitor. 

I wonder what are the general scenarios that minimal replication can not be satisfied, and
how we deal with it in general, especially if min replication is 1.

Thanks.

> 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:
