Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-4274) RS should periodically ping its HLog pipeline even if no writes are arriving
Date Mon, 29 Aug 2011 08:31:37 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4274?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13092698#comment-13092698
] 

Andrew Purtell commented on HBASE-4274:
---------------------------------------

Doesn't HBASE-4222 already address this? It takes a different approach, and arguably a better
one. No need to abort if a new HLog pipeline can be established.

> If you restart HDFS underneath HBase, when HBase isn't taking any write load, the region
servers won't "notice" that there's any problem until the next time they take a write, at
which point they will abort (because the pipeline is gone from beneath them). It would be
better if they wrote some garbage to their HLog once every few seconds as a sort of keepalive,
so they will aggressively abort as soon as there's an issue.
