Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-3744) createTable blocks until all regions are out of transition

stack commented on HBASE-3744:

Thanks for looking into this one Ted.

The issue I ran into today is that the default handler for exceptions thrown while running
BulkAssign excecutors was this:

  protected UncaughtExceptionHandler getUncaughtExceptionHandler() {
    return new UncaughtExceptionHandler() {
      public void uncaughtException(Thread t, Throwable e) {
        // Abort if exception of any kind.
        server.abort("Uncaught exception in " + t.getName(), e);

On the one hand, the above was what we decided made sense doing bulk assign on startup.

But now bulkassign has been pulled around to do bulkassigning elsewhere.  Thats fine.  Its
just that we should change the above default in subclasses that are not startup bulk assigns;
i.e. make a new subclass so we can override the above default (What will you call it?  BulkTableAssigner?).
 We should do this instead of try/catch (try/catch defeats the above mechanism).  I think
what we want in the case where bulkassign is used on table create is just logging of the exception.
 The region will have be in the OFFLINE state waiting to be moved by the RS to OPENING but
it won't happen in the case above, so the OFFLINE state will time out and we'll retry the
open.  We should add a test to prove this is actually what  happens (I could have a go at
that if you want -- just say).

So, I think this bit incorrect:

     public void run() {
-      this.assignmentManager.assign(this.regionserver, this.regions);
+      try {
+        this.assignmentManager.assign(this.regionserver, this.regions);
+      } catch (Exception e) {
+        LOG.error("Error assigning " + this.regions.size() + " regions for "
+            + this.regionserver.getHostnamePort(), e);
+      }

For this:

+        for (HRegionInfo region : regionList) regionSet.add(region);

... can you do this instead?


I like the sync addition and the wait on table regions additions.

Good stuff Ted.

> In HBASE-3305, the behavior of createTable was changed and introduced this bug: createTable
now blocks until all regions have been assigned, since it uses BulkStartupAssigner. BulkStartupAssigner.waitUntilDone
calls assignmentManager.waitUntilNoRegionsInTransition, which waits across all regions, not
just the regions of the table that has just been created.
> We saw an issue where one table had a region which was unable to be opened, so it was
stuck in RegionsInTransition permanently (every open was failing). Since this was the case,
waitUntilDone would always block indefinitely even though the newly created table had been
