Subject [jira] [Updated] (HDFS-8855) Webhdfs client leaks active NameNode connections
Date Tue, 18 Aug 2015 21:21:46 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-8855?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Xiaobing Zhou updated HDFS-8855:
--------------------------------
    Attachment: HDFS-8855.1.patch

Made a patch for review. Idea's been to avoid creating brand new DFSClient per webhdfs request,
which will create a new NN connection.

> The attached script simulates a process opening ~50 files via webhdfs and performing
random reads.  Note that there are at most 50 concurrent reads, and all webhdfs sessions are
kept open.  Each read is ~64k at a random position.  
> The script periodically (once per second) shells into the NameNode and produces a summary
of the socket states.  For my test cluster with 5 nodes, it took ~30 seconds for the NameNode
to have ~25000 active connections and fails.
> It appears that each request to the webhdfs client is opening a new connection to the
NameNode and keeping it open after the request is complete.  If the process continues to run,
eventually (~30-60 seconds), all of the open connections are closed and the NameNode recovers.
 
> This smells like SoftReference reaping.  Are we using SoftReferences in the webhdfs client
to cache NameNode connections but never re-using them?
