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

             Summary: HBase client queries stale hbase:meta location with half-dead RegionServer
                 Key: HBASE-18955
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-18955
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Client
    Affects Versions: 1.1.12
            Reporter: Josh Elser
            Assignee: Josh Elser
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 1.1.13


Have been investigating a case with [~tedyu] where, when a RegionServer becomes "hung" (for
no specific reason -- not the point), the client becomes stuck trying to talk to this RegionServer,
never exiting. This was eventually tracked down to HBASE-15645. However, in testing the fix,
I found that there is an additional problem which only affects branch-1.1.

When the RegionServer in the "half-dead" state is also hosting meta, the hbase client (both
the one trying to read data, but also the client in the Master trying to read meta in SSH)
get stuck repeatedly trying to read meta from the old location after meta has been reassigned.

The general test outline goes like this:

* Start at least 2 regionservers
* Load some data into a table ({{hbase pe}} is great)
* Find a region that is hosted by the same RS that is hosting meta
* {{kill -SIGSTOP}} that RS hosting the user region and meta
* Issue a {{get}} in the hbase-shell trying to read from that user region

The expectation is that the ZK lock will expire for the STOP'ed RS, meta will be reassigned,
then the user regions will be reassigned, then the client will get the result of the get without
seeing an error (as long as this happens within the hbase.client.operation.timeout value,
of course).

We see this happening on HBase 1.2.4 and 1.3.2-SNAPSHOT, but, on 1.1.13-SNAPSHOT, the Master
gets up to re-assigning meta, but then gets stuck trying to read meta from the STOP'ed RS
instead of where it re-assigned it. Because of this, the regions stay in transition until
the master is restarted or the STOP'ed RS is CONT'ed. My best guess is that when the RS sees
the {{SIGCONT}}, it immediately begins stopping which is enough to kick the client into refreshing
the region location cache.
