Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-12487) FsDatasetSpi.isValidBlock() lacks null pointer check inside and neither do the callers
Date Tue, 19 Sep 2017 07:26:00 GMT
liumi created HDFS-12487:
----------------------------

             Summary: FsDatasetSpi.isValidBlock() lacks null pointer check inside and neither
do the callers
                 Key: HDFS-12487
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-12487
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: balancer & mover, diskbalancer
    Affects Versions: 3.0.0-alpha1
         Environment: CentOS 6.8 x64
CPU:4 core
Memory:16GB
Hadoop: Release 3.0.0-alpha4

            Reporter: liumi
             Fix For: 3.0.0-alpha4


BlockIteratorImpl.nextBlock() will look for the blocks in the source volume, if there are
no blocks any more, it will return null up to DiskBalancer.getBlockToCopy(). However, the
DiskBalancer.getBlockToCopy() will check whether it's a valid block.
When I look into the FsDatasetSpi.isValidBlock(), I find that it doesn't check the null pointer!
In fact, we firstly need to check whether it's null or not, or exception will occur.
This bug is hard to find, because the DiskBalancer hardly copy all the data of one volume
to others. Even if some times we may copy all the data of one volume to other volumes, when
the bug occurs, the copy process has already done.
However, when we try to copy all the data of two or more volumes to other volumes in more
than one step, the thread will be shut down, which is caused by the bug above.
The bug can fixed by two ways:
1)Before the call of FsDatasetSpi.isValidBlock(), we check the null pointer
2)Check the null pointer inside the implementation of FsDatasetSpi.isValidBlock()
