Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-2919) Potential race between renew and cancel in DelegationTokenRenwer
Date Thu, 06 Jul 2017 04:14:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-2919?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16075901#comment-16075901

Jian He commented on YARN-2919:

got a question, [~Naganarasimha], could you elaborate what the race condition is based on
code? The jira description is a bit vague.
The patch uses a local variable in the token itself to indicate cancelling, I'm unsure if
this is a good way. Caller can just make a copy of the token and do all sorts of operation
and this flag becomes moot.
Also, there are some behavior changes, the return value of renew method was supposed to be
the expiration time, now '-1' is returned as an error code, which old program does not understand
- old program was expecting an exception if renew fails. And it's possible for old program
to wrongly interprets the '-1' as the expiration time.
