James Moore updated HDFS-11701:
    Affects Version/s:     (was: 2.7.0)

>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: hdfs-client
>    Affects Versions: 2.6.0
>         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.

> 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
