Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-6075) HistoryServerFileSystemStateStore can create zero-length files
Date Tue, 09 Sep 2014 19:27:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-6075?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14127432#comment-14127432

Daryn Sharp commented on MAPREDUCE-6075:

I'm +1 on the change.  The close/null/cleanup is a rather common pattern is hadoop.  Using
flush isn't a substitute for a close for all filesystems.  Close must always be allowed to
throw an exception and only swallowed when another exception occurred.

In java, close() is supposed to be idempotent so double close is fine.  Double closing a fd
is bad because the fd may have already been recycled by another thread.

> When the history server state store writes a token file it uses IOUtils.cleanup() to
close the file which will silently ignore errors.  This can lead to empty token files in the
state store.
