Subject [jira] Updated: (HBASE-2022) NPE in housekeeping kills RS
Date Sat, 05 Dec 2009 00:48:20 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2022?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Jean-Daniel Cryans updated HBASE-2022:

    Attachment: HBASE-2022-v2.patch

I just added a log that reports the null value. Adding logging in Worker makes it very chatty
because when the master don't give anything to do the list is empty so we get a null (expected).
Also I don't think we should synchronize every access since getting a null in housekeeping
won't break anything.

Also. thinking about it, it's normal that the list gives null every time after the first one
because the list is still always empty.

Searching on the web gives me some hits and this is particularly interesting http://forums.sun.com/thread.jspa?threadID=5379669
