Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-6469) Failure on enable/disable table will cause table state in zk to be left as enabling/disabling until master is restarted
Date Tue, 26 Feb 2013 06:40:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6469?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13586855#comment-13586855

rajeshbabu commented on HBASE-6469:

bq.If a background can continue the transaction, why can't another (user initiated) attempt
to either enable or disable the table?
Multiple calls of enable/disable may cause inconsistencies.
Here is the comment from EnableTableHandler/DisableTableHandler constructor.
      // There could be multiple client requests trying to disable or enable
      // the table at the same time. Ensure only the first request is honored
      // After that, no other requests can be accepted until the table reaches

bq.The expectation here is that a user won't care what care what state the table is currently
in. If a disable is triggered the result should be a disabled table (and similar for an enable).
I agree but user need to know about the current state of assignments/unassignments(as of now)
before calling force enable/disable. 

bq.Can we just make so that we allow transitioning from ENABLING to both ENABLED or DISABLED

If we transition from ENABLING to DISABLED then the regions which are in transtion or yet
to start assignment wont be assigned. Some times even assigned regions will be unassigned.

Below are the some code snippets which are used to handle inconsistencies with disable and
balance race.
  private void assign(RegionState state,
      final boolean setOfflineInZK, final boolean forceNewPlan) {
	  if (isDisabledorDisablingRegionInRIT(region)) {
After completion of rit transition we will check once more that table is disabling or disabled
                boolean disabled = getZKTable().isDisablingOrDisabledTable(
                if (!serverManager.isServerOnline(serverName) && !disabled) {
                  LOG.info("Opened region " + regionNameStr
                    + "but the region server is offline, reassign the region");
                  assign(regionInfo, true);
                } else if (disabled) {
                  // if server is offline, no hurt to unassign again
                  LOG.info("Opened region " + regionNameStr
                    + "but this table is disabled, triggering close of region");
During master restart we will skip regions assignment of disabling/disabled tables(This case
is if master restarted after transition). 
    Set<String> disabledOrDisablingOrEnabling = ZKTable.getDisabledOrDisablingTables(watcher);
    // Scan META for all user regions, skipping any disabled tables
    Map<HRegionInfo, ServerName> allRegions = MetaReader.fullScan(
      catalogTracker, disabledOrDisablingOrEnabling, true);

Exactly reverse(assign instead of unassign) will happen if we transition from DISABLING to
code snippet from ClosedRegionHandler.process()
    if (this.assignmentManager.getZKTable().
        isDisablingOrDisabledTable(this.regionInfo.getTableNameAsString())) {
    // ZK Node is in CLOSED state, assign it.
      regionInfo, RegionState.State.CLOSED, null);
    // This below has to do w/ online enable/disable of a table
    assignmentManager.assign(regionInfo, true);

Please correct me if I am wrong. Thanks Lars.

> In Enable/DisableTableHandler code, if something goes wrong in handling, the table state
in zk is left as ENABLING / DISABLING. After that we cannot force any more action from the
API or CLI, and the only recovery path is restarting the master.

> Here, if done is false, the table state is not changed. There is also no way to set skipTableStateCheck
from cli / api. 
> We have run into this issue a couple of times before.
