Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-2856) TestAcidGuarantee broken on trunk
Date Thu, 03 Feb 2011 19:51:29 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2856?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12990261#comment-12990261

ryan rawson commented on HBASE-2856:
------------------------------------

i dont think bulk load is an issue, since we only call update readers between rows (once we
move the update readers to the HRegion.Scanner level), then it will be an atomic 'appearance'
of data. Does that sound right?

> TestAcidGuarantee has a test whereby it attempts to read a number of columns from a row,
and every so often the first column of N is different, when it should be the same.  This is
a bug deep inside the scanner whereby the first peek() of a row is done at time T then the
rest of the read is done at T+1 after a flush, thus the memstoreTS data is lost, and previously
'uncommitted' data becomes committed and flushed to disk.
> One possible solution is to introduce the memstoreTS (or similarly equivalent value)
to the HFile thus allowing us to preserve read consistency past flushes.  Another solution
involves fixing the scanners so that peek() is not destructive (and thus might return different
things at different times alas).
