Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-6060) Regions's in OPENING state from failed regionservers takes a long time to recover
Date Fri, 08 Jun 2012 06:14:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6060?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13291565#comment-13291565

ramkrishna.s.vasudevan commented on HBASE-6060:
-----------------------------------------------

bq. This patch will not fix a concurrent balance that goes to move a region and a concurrent
user-orchestrated move?
Currently does not handle this.  But if we are sure that the region assignments goes smoothly
after this patch we can surely have a mechanism to initmate the user that some plan is already
in progress and wait for that to complete before we initiate the user triggered move or assign.
 
@Enis
bq.very nervous about all the state combinations distributed between zk / meta / rs-memory
and master-memory.
Can you tell me any problems that you foresee.  Happy to address that too here.  Infact we
have not introduced any new states.  Just using the maps and zookeeper states available. 
The REgionplan state we introduced here is something internal to know the difference which
we will address in our next patch as per Stack's suggestion.
Your comments and feedback are always welcome.

> 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
process: 
>  
>  - 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
happen. 
>  - 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.
