Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-6970) hbase-deamon.sh creates/updates pid file even when that start failed.
Date Tue, 11 Dec 2012 13:45:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6970?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13528965#comment-13528965

nkeywal commented on HBASE-6970:

Doing things completely is actually far from simple...
- Ensuring that the java path is clean and we can always return the right status seems very
complicated if we don't want to have endless bugs around forgotten cases.
- Failure return code from the stop: easy to add in the script shell
- Only write a new pid if the start was actually successful. The only way I see to do this
is to write the pid file from the java program. This should cover most cases, but we should
do it soon enough (likely at the very beginning of the "run" method) to ensure we've generated
the file even if we have a endless loop later.

>            Assignee: nkeywal
> We just ran into a strange issue where could neither start nor stop services with hbase-deamon.sh.
> The problem is this:
> {code}
>     nohup nice -n $HBASE_NICENESS "$HBASE_HOME"/bin/hbase \
>         --config "${HBASE_CONF_DIR}" \
>         $command "$@" $startStop > "$logout" 2>&1 < /dev/null &
>     echo $! > $pid
> {code}
> So the pid file is created or updated even when the start of the service failed. The
next stop command will then fail, because the pid file has the wrong pid in it.
> Edit: Spelling and more spelling errors.
