Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-10829) Flush is skipped after log replay if the last recovered edits file is skipped
Date Tue, 25 Mar 2014 18:26:20 GMT

-------------------------------------

             Summary: Flush is skipped after log replay if the last recovered edits file is
skipped
                 Key: HBASE-10829
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-10829
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Enis Soztutar
            Assignee: Enis Soztutar
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 0.99.0, 0.98.2, 0.96.3


We caught this in an extended test run where IntegrationTestBigLinkedList failed with some
missing keys. 

The problem is that HRegion.replayRecoveredEdits() would return -1 if all the edits in the
log file is skipped, which is true for example if the log file only contains a single compaction
record (HBASE-2231) or somehow the edits cannot be applied (column family deleted, etc). 

The callee, HRegion.replayRecoveredEditsIfAny() only looks for the last returned seqId to
decide whether a flush is necessary or not before opening the region, and discarding replayed
recovered edits files. 

Therefore, if the last recovered edits file is skipped but some edits from earlier recovered
edits files are applied, the mandatory flush before opening the region is skipped. If the
region server dies after this point before a flush, the edits are lost. 

This is important to fix, though the sequence of events are super rare for a production cluster.
