Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-12639) BPOfferService lock may stall all service actors
Date Wed, 11 Oct 2017 19:24:00 GMT
Daryn Sharp created HDFS-12639:

             Summary: BPOfferService lock may stall all service actors
                 Key: HDFS-12639
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-12639
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: datanode
    Affects Versions: 2.8.0
            Reporter: Daryn Sharp

{{BPOfferService}} manages {{BPServiceActor}} instances for the active and standby.  It uses
a RW lock to primarily protect registration information while determining the active/standby
from heartbeats.

Unfortunately the write lock is held during command processing.  If an actor is experiencing
high latency processing commands, the other actor will neither be able to register (blocked
in createRegistration, setNamespaceInfo, verifyAndSetNamespaceInfo) nor process heartbeats
(blocked in updateActorStatesFromHeartbeat).

The worst case scenario for processing commands while holding the lock is re-registration.
 The actor will loop, catching and logging exceptions, leaving the other actor blocked for
an non-deterministic (possibly infinite) amount of time.

The lock must not be held during command processing.
