Subject [jira] [Updated] (HBASE-3890) Scheduled tasks in distributed log splitting not in sync with ZK
Date Wed, 16 Jan 2013 02:46:14 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-3890?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Jeffrey Zhong updated HBASE-3890:

    Attachment: hbase-3890.patch

The fix is trivial. In the patch, I also increased the log level for double deletion case
because the logs are important when debugging issues like this. It won't cause overwhelming
log info as double delete doesn't happen frequently.

Existing implementation is using a single thread to schedule split log task. If it shows two
scheduled task, it must have two files for recovery. While there could be a potential hole
when updating the task complete status as follows:

1) There are left over zk nodes when HMaster starts
2) function SplitLogManager#lookForOrphans picks left paths from zk and try to recover them
from previous runs
3)function createTaskIfAbsent inside SplitLogManager#enqueueSplitTask tries to attach batch
instance to the orphan task created by LookForOrphans as below:
        if (oldtask.status == IN_PROGRESS) {
          oldtask.batch = batch;
          LOG.debug("Previously orphan task " + path + " is now being waited upon");
          return null;

Since Task.batch is NOT declared as volatile, when the orphan task completes and setDone potentially
doesn't see the task.batch is set. The following lines of code are skipped. In the end, we
have the inconsistant behavior documented in the JIRA.

          if (task.batch != null) {
            synchronized (task.batch) {
              if (status == SUCCESS) {
              } else {

Based on the above analysis, the bug should happen very rarely. 


Could you pls confirm the issue isn't easy to repro otherwise there are other reasons?

> This is in continuation to HBASE-3889:
> Note that there must be more slightly off here. Although the splitlogs znode is now empty
the master is still stuck here:
> {noformat}
> Doing distributed log split in hdfs://localhost:8020/hbase/.logs/,60020,1305406356765

> - Waiting for distributed tasks to finish. scheduled=2 done=1 error=0   4380s
> Master startup	
> - Splitting logs after master startup   4388s
> {noformat}
> There seems to be an issue with what is in ZK and what the TaskBatch holds. In my case
it could be related to the fact that the task was already in ZK after many faulty restarts
because of the NPE. Maybe it was added once (since that is keyed by path, and that is unique
on my machine), but the reference count upped twice? Now that the real one is done, the done
counter has been increased, but will never match the scheduled.
> The code could also check if ZK is actually depleted, and therefore treat the scheduled
task as bogus? This of course only treats the symptom, not the root cause of this condition.
