Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-8223) [89-FB] Fix race condition between append/sync and HLog.close() work flow.

             Summary: [89-FB] Fix race condition between append/sync and HLog.close() work
                 Key: HBASE-8223
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-8223
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 0.89-fb
            Reporter: Rishit Shroff
            Priority: Minor

The RegionServer was performing a shutdown as it got YouAreDeadException. It closed the HLog
and was waiting to close all the regions where it got stuck.

The reason region close is stuck because it's trying to obtain a lock which is occupied by
the put op, which in turn is waiting for append to HLog to complete.

There is race condition here is between append/sync and HLog.close() work flow. 


Thread 1 => doing the append
Thread 2 => doing HregionServer shutdown


t1> 1: Verifies that LogSyncer is not shutting down and HLog is not closed and calls sync()
t2> 2: HRegionServer issued HLog.close()
t3> 2: In HLog.close(), it joins the LogSyncer thread, which signals all the threads waiting
on syncDone and exits.
t4> 1: In sync, it sees that the sync has not complete until its txd, hence adds itself
to the syncDone.await queue.

Note: at t4, it does not check whether the LogSyncer Thread is alive or not, which caused
this hang.
