Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-4842) [hbck] Fix intermittent failures on TestHBaseFsck.testHBaseFsck
Date Tue, 22 Nov 2011 01:06:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4842?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13154788#comment-13154788

Jonathan Hsieh commented on HBASE-4842:

The story behind this problem.

HBCK repairs a bad assignment using the admin interface to reassign a particular region. 
 offlining the region in ZK.  This calls master.assign -- eventually the master uses its serverManager
and issues an HRegionServer.openRegion().

Looks like the HRegionServer.openRegion being essentially asynchronous and causes the failure.
 The call submits an OpenRegionHandler (ORH) callback to the RS's ExecutorService and then
immediately returns the RegionState to OPENED.

The ORH thread calls ORH.process -> updateMeta, which creates a PostOpenDeployTaskThread
and starts another thread that calls  HRegionServer.postOpenDeployTasks -> MetaEditor.updateRegionLocation
which updates the meta table.  

The problem is that the RegionState OPENED is reported to the master even though it may not
have written all its new assignment to META yet.

> In the test, a region's assignment is purposely changed in META but not in ZK.  After
the equivalent of 'hbck -fix', a subsequent check that should be clean comes up with a new
ZK assignment but with META still being inconsistent with ZK.  The RS in ZK sometimes this
points to the same RS, but sometimes it "moves" to another ZK.
