Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-6335) Switching log-splitting policy after last failure master start may cause data loss
Date Fri, 06 Jul 2012 03:45:33 GMT
chunhui shen created HBASE-6335:

             Summary: Switching log-splitting policy after last failure master start may cause
data loss
                 Key: HBASE-6335
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6335
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: master
    Affects Versions: 0.94.0, 0.92.1
            Reporter: chunhui shen
            Assignee: chunhui shen

How happen?

If server A is down, and it hase three log files, all the data is from one region.
File 1: kv01 kv02 kv03
File 2: kv04 kv05 kv06
File 3: kv07 kv08 kv09
Here,kv01 means, its log seqID is 01

Case:Switch to maste-local-log-splitting from distributed-log-splitting

1.Master find serverA is down, and start to split its log files using split-log-splitting.

2.Successfully split log file2, and move it to oldLogs, and generate one edit file named 06
in region recover.edits dir.

3.Master restart, and change the log-splitting policy to maste-local-log-splitting , and start
to split file 1, file 3

4.Successfully split log file1 and file3, and generate one edit file named 09 in region recover.edits

5.Region replay edits from edit file 06 and 09, Region's seqID is 06 after it replay edits
from 06, and when replaying edit from 09, it will skip kv01,kv02,kv03, So these data loss.

As the above case, if we switch  to distributed-log-splitting from maste-local-log-splitting,
it could also cause data loss

Should we fix this bug or avoid the case? I'm not sure...
