Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-5848) Create table with EMPTY_START_ROW passed as splitKey causes the HMaster to abort
Date Tue, 24 Apr 2012 17:29:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5848?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13260729#comment-13260729

Ramkrishna.S.Vasudevan commented on HBASE-5848:
-----------------------------------------------

The reason is because of HBASE-5848.  I forgot to do the submit patch option, so the hadoop
QA did not run.
I will rectify the failures . Sorry for breaking the build.

Regards
Ram

> A coworker of mine just had this scenario. It does not make sense the EMPTY_START_ROW
as splitKey (since the region with the empty start key is implicit), but it should not cause
the HMaster to abort.
> The abort happens because it tries to bulk assign the same region twice and then runs
into race conditions with ZK.
> The same would (presumably) happen when two identical split keys are passed, but the
client blocks that. The simplest solution here is to also block passed null or EMPTY_START_ROW
as split key by the client.
