Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-17302) the region flush request disappeared from flushQueue
Date Tue, 13 Dec 2016 11:31:58 GMT
Guangxu Cheng created HBASE-17302:

             Summary: the region flush request disappeared from flushQueue
                 Key: HBASE-17302
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-17302
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.2.4, 0.98.23, 2.0.0
            Reporter: Guangxu Cheng

Region has too many store files delaying flush up to blockingWaitTime ms, and the region flush
request is requeued into the flushQueue.

When the region flush request is requeued into the flushQueue frequently, the request is inexplicably
disappeared sometimes. 

But regionsInQueue still contains the information of the region request, which leads to new
flush request can not be inserted into the flushQueue.
Then, the region will not do flush anymore.

In order to locate the problem, I added a lot of log in the code.
private boolean flushRegion(final HRegion region, final boolean emergencyFlush) {
long startTime = 0;
synchronized (this.regionsInQueue) {
  FlushRegionEntry fqe = this.regionsInQueue.remove(region);
  // Use the start time of the FlushRegionEntry if available
  if (fqe != null) {
	startTime = fqe.createTime;
  if (fqe != null && emergencyFlush) {
	// Need to remove from region from delay queue.  When NOT an
	// emergencyFlush, then item was removed via a flushQueue.poll.

When encountered emergencyFlush, the region flusher will be removed from the flushQueue.

By comparing the flushQueue content before and after remove, RegionA should have been removed,
it is possible to remove RegionB.
public boolean equals(Object obj) {
  if (this == obj) {
	return true;
  if (obj == null || getClass() != obj.getClass()) {
	return false;
  Delayed other = (Delayed) obj;
  return compareTo(other) == 0;

FlushRegionEntry in achieving the equals function, only comparison of the delay time, if different
regions of the same delay time, it is possible that A wrong B.
