Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-3686) Scanner timeout on RegionServer but Client won't know what happened
Date Wed, 23 Mar 2011 20:57:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-3686?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13010441#comment-13010441

stack commented on HBASE-3686:

Agreed Sean.  We should do this for more of our configs, let client set them.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-3686
>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: client
>    Affects Versions: 0.89.20100924
>            Reporter: Sean Sechrist
>            Priority: Minor
> This can cause rows to be lost from a scan.
> See this thread where the issue was brought up: http://search-hadoop.com/m/xITBQ136xGJ1
> If hbase.regionserver.lease.period is higher on the client than the server we can get
this series of events: 
> 1. Client is scanning along happily, and does something slow.
> 2. Scanner times out on region server
> 3. Client calls HTable.ClientScanner.next()
> 4. The region server throws an UnknownScannerException
> 5. Client catches exception and sees that it's not longer then it's hbase.regionserver.lease.period
config, so it doesn't throw a ScannerTimeoutException. Instead, it treats it like a NSRE.
> Right now the workaround is to make sure the configs are consistent. 
> A possible fix would be to use whatever the region server's scanner timeout is, rather
than the local one.
