Subject [jira] [Resolved] (HBASE-11188) "Inconsistent configuration" for SchemaMetrics is always shown
Date Fri, 16 May 2014 17:05:15 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-11188?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Jean-Daniel Cryans resolved HBASE-11188.
----------------------------------------

      Resolution: Fixed
    Release Note: 
Region servers with the default value for hbase.metrics.showTableName will stop showing the
error message "ERROR org.apache.hadoop.hbase.regionserver.metrics.SchemaMetrics: Inconsistent
configuration. Previous configuration for using table name in metrics: true, new configuration:
false".
Region servers configured with hbase.metrics.showTableName=false should now get a message
like this one: "ERROR org.apache.hadoop.hbase.regionserver.metrics.SchemaMetrics: Inconsistent
configuration. Previous configuration for using table name in metrics: false, new configuration:
true", and it's nothing to be concerned about.
    Hadoop Flags: Reviewed

Grazie Matteo, I committed the patch to 0.94

> ERROR org.apache.hadoop.hbase.regionserver.metrics.SchemaMetrics: Inconsistent configuration.
Previous configuration for using table name in metrics: true, new configuration: false
> {noformat}
> The interesting thing is that we see it with default configurations, which made me think
that some code path must have been passing the wrong thing. I found that if SchemaConfigured
is passed a null Configuration in its constructor that it will then pass null to SchemaMetrics#configureGlobally
which will interpret useTableName as being false:
> {code}
>   public static void configureGlobally(Configuration conf) {
>     if (conf != null) {
>       final boolean useTableNameNew =
>           conf.getBoolean(SHOW_TABLE_NAME_CONF_KEY, false);
>       setUseTableName(useTableNameNew);
>     } else {
>       setUseTableName(false);
>     }
>   }
> {code}
> It should be set to true since that's the new default, meaning we missed it in HBASE-5671.
> I found one code path that passes a null configuration, StoreFile.Reader extends SchemaConfigured
and uses the constructor that only passes a Path, so the Configuration is set to null.
> I'm planning on just passing true instead of false, fixing the problem for almost everyone
(those that disable this feature will get the error message). IMO it's not worth more efforts
since it's a 0.94-only problem and it's not actually doing anything bad.
> I'm closing both HBASE-10990 and HBASE-10946 as duplicates.
