Subject [jira] Created: (HBASE-644) DroppedSnapshotException but RegionServer doesn't restart
Date Sun, 25 May 2008 20:13:55 GMT
DroppedSnapshotException but RegionServer doesn't restart

                 Key: HBASE-644
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-644
             Project: Hadoop HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: stack
            Priority: Blocker
             Fix For: 0.1.3, 0.2.0

RegionServer was carrying -ROOT- and having trouble writing HDFS.  RegionServer judged that
a flush failed and reported a DroppedSnapshotException.  Usually, the filesystem check would
fail and set all the abort flags but it in this case filesystem somehow returned healthy and
the flags were not set.  The code path shutdown the RPC only and exited then we exited the
Flusher.  All the rest of the RegionServer stayed up and kept reporting the master.  The master
thought it alive and kept trying to scan the unreachable -ROOT-.  Cluster was hosed until
manual intervention 20 minutes later.
