Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-711) Complain if clock skew across the cluster is badly out of sync
Date Wed, 06 Aug 2008 22:24:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-711?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12620454#action_12620454

Jim Kellerman commented on HBASE-711:

> IIUC, region A with key a start key of 10 and an end key of 12 will be named A,10,12.
When it splits, the lower
> halves new name will be A,10,11 which sorts before A,10,12. We don't want that, right?

Yes, this is a problem given that we use getRowAtOrBefore. If we exposed something like getRowAtOrAfter,
this would work.. I have been playing around with strategies that do not require additional
APIs, but have not been successful in constructing a key that would sort to the right spot
if we got a result back that said that the region was split,offline. I think it is do-able,
but just don't have an exact handle on it yet.

> hbase-710 and hbase-609 are issues where the system has broken in presence of clock skew
over the cluster.  Would be a nice service if master could flag very bad clock skew.  Regionservers
could report their local time when they ping the master.  It could do a compare.
