Subject [jira] [Updated] (HDFS-9079) Erasure coding: preallocate multiple generation stamps and serialize updates from data streamers
Date Thu, 26 Nov 2015 00:28:11 GMT

Zhe Zhang updated HDFS-9079:
    Attachment: HDFS-9079.14.patch

Updating patch to fix a trivial NPE bug and the block token test failure.

So the {{TestDFSStripedOutputStreamWithFailurexxx}} tests sometimes time out during setup
and tearDown. We should think of a way to reduce this kind of false alarms. I turned off the
random checking in {{TestBase}} and ran all tests locally, only got timeouts in setup and

> A non-striped DataStreamer goes through the following steps in error handling:
> {code}
> 1) Finds error => 2) Asks NN for new GS => 3) Gets new GS from NN => 4) Applies
new GS to DN (createBlockOutputStream) => 5) Ack from DN => 6) Updates block on NN
> {code}
> With multiple streamer threads run in parallel, we need to correctly handle a large number
of possible combinations of interleaved thread events. For example, {{streamer_B}} starts
step 2 in between events {{streamer_A.2}} and {{streamer_A.3}}.
> HDFS-9040 moves steps 1, 2, 3, 6 from streamer to {{DFSStripedOutputStream}}. This JIRA
proposes some further optimizations based on HDFS-9040:
> # We can preallocate GS when NN creates a new striped block group ({{FSN#createNewBlock}}).
For each new striped block group we can reserve {{NUM_PARITY_BLOCKS}} GS's. If more than {{NUM_PARITY_BLOCKS}}
errors have happened we shouldn't try to further recover anyway.
> # We can use a dedicated event processor to offload the error handling logic from {{DFSStripedOutputStream}},
which is not a long running daemon.
> # We can limit the lifespan of a streamer to be a single block. A streamer ends either
after finishing the current block or when encountering a DN failure.
> With the proposed change, a {{StripedDataStreamer}}'s flow becomes:
> {code}
> 1) Finds DN error => 2) Notify coordinator (async, not waiting for response) =>
> 1) Finds external error => 2) Applies new GS to DN (createBlockOutputStream) =>
3) Ack from DN => 4) Notify coordinator (async, not waiting for response)
> {code}
