Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-7) [hbase] Provide a HBase checker and repair tool similar to fsck
Date Wed, 01 Apr 2009 05:07:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12694382#action_12694382

Onur GUN commented on HBASE-7:

I am trying to finalize my proposal and i welcome any comments for the below.

I have examined Ryan's patch and for deleting bogus entries in .META. In the patch there is
a comment that "it is a trivial fix case". At this point i wonder if we can have any other
cases for bogus entries that hbasfck should resolve in a different manner.

And since we are vulnerable in deletion, flush and HLog, I guess hbascfck should assume that
some of these are resolved. If we are fixing meta from files, we assume that files are correct.

As of now i guess what needs to be done is:
1-)We should force flush and compaction (for now we can have problems related to incomplete
cache flush and HLog). After that we should put table into safe-mode(since otherwise hbasfck
can not operate safely, and i guess this will be similar to dfsadmin safemode).
2-)Recovering root region from meta regions.
3-)Listing all regions, comparing them with the .META. As a result recovering meta from regions

by adding or deleting (Done by Ryan's patch i guess) .META entries.
4-)Checking info files.

More can be:
5-) Adding an option for taking a snapshot before the fix.
6-) Creating a log file that can be used to track improvement needs and problems.
