Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-5611) Replayed edits from regions that failed to open during recovery aren't removed from the global MemStore size
Date Thu, 26 Apr 2012 14:56:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5611?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13262652#comment-13262652

Zhihong Yu commented on HBASE-5611:

Patch v2 looks good in general.
Comment on formatting:
+   * @param regionName
+   *          region name.
The line length is 100 chars. Please put javadoc for param on the same line as param name.

You can wait for Hadoop QA result to come back before attaching new patches.

> This bug is rather easy to get if the {{TimeoutMonitor}} is on, else I think it's still
possible to hit it if a region fails to open for more obscure reasons like HDFS errors.
> Consider a region that just went through distributed splitting and that's now being opened
by a new RS. The first thing it does is to read the recovery files and put the edits in the
{{MemStores}}. If this process takes a long time, the master will move that region away. At
that point the edits are still accounted for in the global {{MemStore}} size but they are
dropped when the {{HRegion}} gets cleaned up. It's completely invisible until the {{MemStoreFlusher}}
needs to force flush a region and that none of them have edits:

> {noformat}
> The {{null}} here is a region. In my case I had so many edits in the {{MemStore}} during
recovery that I'm over the low barrier although in fact I'm at 0. It happened yesterday and
it still printing this out.
> To fix this we need to be able to decrease the global {{MemStore}} size when the region
can't open.
