Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-3478) HBase fails to recover from failed DNS resolution of stale meta connection info
Date Wed, 26 Jan 2011 00:42:43 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-3478?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12986792#action_12986792

James Kennedy commented on HBASE-3478:

Configuration A:

        <description>Interval between messages from the RegionServer to HMaster
            in milliseconds.  Default is 15 sec. Set this value low if you want unit
            tests to be responsive.

Configuration B:

> HBase fails to recover from failed DNS resolution of stale meta connection info
> -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: HBASE-3478
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-3478
>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: master
>    Affects Versions: 0.90.1

>             Fix For: 0.90.1
> This looks like a variant of HBASE-3445:
> One of our developers ran a seed program with configuration A to generate some test data
on his local machine. He then moved that data into a development environment on the same machine
with a different hbase configuration B.
> On startup the HMaster waits for new regionserver to register itself:

> First of all, we do not yet understand why in configuration A the RegionInfo resolved
to "warren:60020" whereas in configuration B we get "".  The port numbers make
sense but not the "warren" hostname. It's probably specific to Warren's mac environment somehow
because no other developer gets this problem when doing the same thing.  "warren" isn't in
his hosts file so that remains a mystery.
> But irrespective of that, since the ports differ we expect the stale meta connection
data to cause connection failure anyway.  Perhaps in the form of a SocketTimeoutException
as in hbase-3445.
> But shouldn't the HMaster handle that by catching the exception and letting verifyMetaRegionLocation()
fail so that meta regions get reassigned to the new region server?
> Probably the safeguards in CatalogTracker.getCachedConnection() should move up to getMetaServerConnection()
so as to encompass MetaReader.readMetaLocation() also. Essentially if getMetaServerConnection()
encounters ANY exception connection to meta RegionServer it should probably just return null
to force meta region reassignment.
