Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-6900) RegionScanner.reseek() creates NPE when a flush or compaction happens before the reseek.
Date Fri, 05 Oct 2012 04:58:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6900?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13470024#comment-13470024

Anoop Sam John commented on HBASE-6900:

bq.I was just seeing what if the lastTop was null so that checkReseek doesn't reset the heap.
If that will not happen then the above change should be fine Lars.
Store#notifyChangedReadersObservers() will set this lastTop to the old heap peeked value.
This will happen when in between of scan compaction happens or flush.
bq.Even if that happens, don't you always want to reseek to the kv that passed in?
Yes ideally whatever be the case when reseek() API is called from the CP expect a reseek to
happen to the passed KV

> HBASE-5520 introduced reseek() on the RegionScanner.  
> Now when a scanner is created we have the StoreScanner heap.  After this if a flush or
compaction happens parallely all the StoreScannerObservers are cleared so that whenever a
new next() call happens we tend to recreate the scanner based on the latest store files.
> The reseek() in StoreScanner expects the heap not to be null because always reseek would
be called from next()
> {code}
> public synchronized boolean reseek(KeyValue kv) throws IOException {
>     //Heap cannot be null, because this is only called from next() which
>     //guarantees that heap will never be null before this call.
>     if (explicitColumnQuery && lazySeekEnabledGlobally) {
>       return heap.requestSeek(kv, true, useRowColBloom);
>     } else {
>       return heap.reseek(kv);
>     }
>   }
> {code}
> Now when we call RegionScanner.reseek() directly using CPs we tend to get a NPE.  In
our case it happened when a major compaction was going on.  I will also attach a testcase
to show the problem.
