Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-11701) NPE from Unresolved Host causes permanent DFSInputStream failures
Date Tue, 25 Apr 2017 16:45:04 GMT
James Moore created HDFS-11701:

             Summary: NPE from Unresolved Host causes permanent DFSInputStream failures
                 Key: HDFS-11701
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-11701
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: hdfs-client
    Affects Versions: 2.7.0
         Environment: AWS Centos linux running HBase CDH 5.9.0 and HDFS CDH 5.9.0
            Reporter: James Moore

We recently encountered the following NPE due to the DFSInputStream storing old cached block
locations from hosts which could no longer resolve.

```Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
    at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.DFSClient.isLocalAddress(DFSClient.java:1122)
    at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.shortcircuit.DomainSocketFactory.getPathInfo(DomainSocketFactory.java:148)

    at org.apache.hadoop.fs.FSDataInputStream.seekToNewSource(FSDataInputStream.java:127)
~HBase related stack frames trimmed~```

After investigating, the DFSInputStream appears to have been open for upwards of 3-4 weeks
and had cached block locations from decommissioned nodes that no longer resolve in DNS and
had been shutdown and removed from the cluster 2 weeks prior.  If the DFSInputStream had refreshed
its block locations from the name node, it would have received alternative block locations
which would not contain the decommissioned data nodes.  As the above NPE leaves the non-resolving
data node in the list of block locations the DFSInputStream never refreshes the block locations
and all attempts to open a BlockReader for the given blocks will fail.

In our case, we resolved the NPE by closing and re-opening every DFSInputStream in the cluster
to force a purge of the block locations cache.  Ideally, the DFSInputStream would re-fetch
all block locations for a host which can't be resolved in DNS or at least the blocks requested.
