Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-6060) Regions's in OPENING state from failed regionservers takes a long time to recover
Date Wed, 06 Jun 2012 06:04:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6060?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13289974#comment-13289974

ramkrishna.s.vasudevan commented on HBASE-6060:

bq.Are you thinking that the patches posted earlier address this issue and hbase-5816?
Yes.  It addresses HBASe-5396, HBASE-6060 and HBASe-5816.
bq.If we are to continue to have multiple threads doing assign, then we need to have each
claim ownership of the region first by writing zk and then verifying the seqid each time they
move the region state. If they fali to grab the znode, then someone else is operating on it
and they should give up.
This is already happening as per the current code. Before master tries to write the data on
the znode there is a version check.  Even when RS tries to update the znode there is a version
check.  But on top of this there are also some inmemory states in master which is getting
updated by various threads. And that will also lead to some abnormalities like
if (!hijack && !state.isClosed() && !state.isOffline()) {
      String msg = "Unexpected state : " + state + " .. Cannot transit it to OFFLINE.";
      this.master.abort(msg, new IllegalStateException(msg));
      return -1;
leading to issues like HBASE-5816.  One more thing if you see in the patches attached here,
 logic of manipulating the region plan happens in the synchronized(regionplans) block.  Thus
helping us to make only one assign thread to succeed.  Either AM or SSH.

> we have seen a pattern in tests, that the regions are stuck in OPENING state for a very
long time when the region server who is opening the region fails. My understanding of the
>  - master calls rs to open the region. If rs is offline, a new plan is generated (a new
rs is chosen). RegionState is set to PENDING_OPEN (only in master memory, zk still shows OFFLINE).
See HRegionServer.openRegion(), HMaster.assign()
>  - RegionServer, starts opening a region, changes the state in znode. But that znode
is not ephemeral. (see ZkAssign)
>  - Rs transitions zk node from OFFLINE to OPENING. See OpenRegionHandler.process()
>  - rs then opens the region, and changes znode from OPENING to OPENED
>  - when rs is killed between OPENING and OPENED states, then zk shows OPENING state,
and the master just waits for rs to change the region state, but since rs is down, that wont
>  - There is a AssignmentManager.TimeoutMonitor, which does exactly guard against these
kind of conditions. It periodically checks (every 10 sec by default) the regions in transition
to see whether they timedout (hbase.master.assignment.timeoutmonitor.timeout). Default timeout
is 30 min, which explains what you and I are seeing. 
>  - ServerShutdownHandler in Master does not reassign regions in OPENING state, although
it handles other states. 
> Lowering that threshold from the configuration is one option, but still I think we can
do better. 
> Will investigate more.
