Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-1784) Missing rows after medium intensity insert
Date Fri, 28 Aug 2009 16:26:32 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1784?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12748880#action_12748880

Andrew Purtell commented on HBASE-1784:

bq. java.lang.RuntimeException: ScanWildcardColumnTracker.checkColumn ran into a column actually
smaller than the previous column

That error means that edits for one family are still ending up in store files for another.
I remember how to hack the code to let the store scanner continue around this condition. Otherwise
it is in effect data loss because the store scanner cannot continue, though data is there.
Let me put up a patch for this.

There is a separate hack for healing the problem as it is discovered during compaction by
moving the edits from the inappropriate store to the appropriate one. Should we do this too
as a workaround until the root cause is found and fixed?

> This bug was uncovered by Mathias in his mail "Issue on data load with 0.20.0-rc2". Basically,
somehow, after a medium intensity insert a lot of rows goes missing. Easy way to reproduce
: PE. Doing a PE scan or randomRead afterwards won't uncover anything since it doesn't bother
about null rows. Simply do a count in the shell, easy to test (I changed my scanner caching
in the shell to do it faster).
> I tested some light insertions with force flush/compact/split in the shell and it doesn't
