Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-10088) SecureClient will hang when access secure-disabled cluster
Date Thu, 05 Dec 2013 12:29:35 GMT
cuijianwei created HBASE-10088:

             Summary: SecureClient will hang when access secure-disabled cluster
                 Key: HBASE-10088
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-10088
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Client, security
    Affects Versions: 0.94.14
            Reporter: cuijianwei

When I misuse a secure hbase client to access a secure-disabled hbase server, I found the
client will hang. The reason is that client will firstly invoke rpc method "getProtocolVersion",
and the response from a secure-disabled server won't contain necessary fields processed by
SecureClient. SecureClient will process the response as follows : (from SecureClient.receiveResponse()):
if (state == Status.SUCCESS.state) {
          Writable value = ReflectionUtils.newInstance(valueClass, conf);
          value.readFields(in);                 // read value
          if (LOG.isDebugEnabled()) {
            LOG.debug("call #"+id+", response is:\n"+value.toString());
          // it's possible that this call may have been cleaned up due to a RPC
          // timeout, so check if it still exists before setting the value.
          if (call != null) {
        } else if (state == Status.ERROR.state) {
          if (call != null) {
            call.setException(new RemoteException(WritableUtils.readString(in), WritableUtils
        } else if (state == Status.FATAL.state) {
          RemoteException exception = new RemoteException(WritableUtils.readString(in),
          // the call will be removed from call map, we must set Exception here to notify
          // the thread waited on the call
          if (call != null) {
          // Close the connection
As the above code, SecureClient need to read 'state' field from response. If the response
is from a secure-disabled server, there will no 'state' field in response and SecureClient
will get an illegal 'state', then the call will be removed from cached calls without notifying
waiting thread. This will make the invoker waiting all the time. Although we should not use
secure client to access secure-disabled server, users might encounter this situation because
of misusing or error configuration. If the client will hang in this situation, users might
not know the error quickly. Maybe, it is better to report an error in this situation so that
users will know what happens quickly.
