Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-4077) Deadlock if WrongRegionException is thrown from getLock in HRegion.delete
Date Thu, 07 Jul 2011 20:39:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4077?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13061576#comment-13061576

Adam Warrington commented on HBASE-4077:

I followed the same pattern used in the other update functions in HRegion, which include:


I originally did a check against null, but after looking through the code, decided consistency
with the other functions was something I liked better. I'm in no way married to this, so I
am game to change it to a null check if that is what folks want. Let me know.

> In the HRegion.delete function, If getLock throws a WrongRegionException, no lock id
is ever returned, yet in the finally block, it tries to release the row lock using that lock
id (which is null). This causes an NPE in the finally clause, and the closeRegionOperation()
to never execute, keeping a read lock open forever.

region remains in transition forever.
