Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-4988) MetaServer crash cause all splitting regionserver abort
Date Fri, 09 Dec 2011 06:59:42 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4988?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13165898#comment-13165898

chunhui shen commented on HBASE-4988:


The case happens in our test environment which use 0.90 version.

If .META. Server is killed and not started immediately.
the step MetaEditor.offlineParentInMeta will fail and throw exception,
and the JournalEntry.PONR causes server abort when rolling back.

In Trunk version, MetaEditor.offlineParentInMeta will retry, but the parent region can't on
service for a long time, I think it is unacceptable. Also the retry would be failed, and cause
server abort finally.

{code}metaServer.put(CatalogTracker.META_REGION_NAME, put);{code}
If the .meta. server die between verification and doing put above, it will abort because we
can't ensure whether update .meta. successfully. However, if we can find that .meta. server
is not ok now first, we needn't abort server which is doing split
