Subject [jira] [Updated] (HDFS-10986) DFSAdmin should log detailed error message if any
Date Mon, 10 Oct 2016 23:51:20 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-10986?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Mingliang Liu updated HDFS-10986:
---------------------------------
    Description: 
There are some subcommands in {{DFSAdmin}} that swallow IOException and give very limited
error message, if any, to the stderr.

{code}
$ hdfs dfsadmin -getBalancerBandwidth 127.0.0.1:9866
Datanode unreachable.
$ hdfs dfsadmin -getDatanodeInfo localhost:9866
Datanode unreachable.
$ hdfs dfsadmin -evictWriters 127.0.0.1:9866
$ echo $?
-1
{code}

User is not able to get the exception stack even the LOG level is DEBUG. This is not very
user friendly. Fortunately, if the port number is not accessible (say 9999), users can infer
the detailed error message by IPC logs:
{code}
$ hdfs dfsadmin -getBalancerBandwidth 127.0.0.1:9999
2016-10-07 18:01:35,115 WARN util.NativeCodeLoader: Unable to load native-hadoop library for
your platform... using builtin-java classes where applicable
2016-10-07 18:01:36,335 INFO ipc.Client: Retrying connect to server: localhost/127.0.0.1:9999.

.....
2016-10-07 18:01:45,361 INFO ipc.Client: Retrying connect to server: localhost/127.0.0.1:9999.

	at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.tools.DFSAdmin.main(DFSAdmin.java:2225)
Datanode unreachable.
{code}

We should fix this by providing detailed error message. Actually, the {{DFSAdmin#run}} already
handles exception carefully, including:
# set the exit ret value to -1
# print the error message
# log the exception stack trace (in DEBUG level)

All we need to do is to not swallow exceptions without good reason.
