Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-5076) HBase shell hangs when creating some 'illegal' tables.
Date Tue, 28 Aug 2012 12:37:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5076?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13443117#comment-13443117
] 

liang xie commented on HBASE-5076:
----------------------------------

After enable hbase-shell debug log, found there's an infinite loop in metaScan method for
some special tablenames:
{code}
do {
...
          if (rrs == null || rrs.length == 0 || rrs[0].size() == 0) {
            break; //exit completely
          }
...
startRow = callable.getHRegionInfo().getEndKey();
...
} while (Bytes.compareTo(startRow, HConstants.LAST_ROW) != 0);
{code}

Maybe a feasible fix is to filter some system-reserved tablenames in HTableDescriptor.isLegalTableName.

I can try to give a trivial patch if you or other experts agree:)

> We should probably either rename to make the files illegal table names (hbase.version
to .hbase.version and splitlog to .splitlog) or we could add more special cases.
