Subject [jira] [Comment Edited] (HBASE-7365) Safer table creation and deletion using .tmp dir
Date Tue, 05 Feb 2013 16:25:55 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7365?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13571426#comment-13571426

---------------------------------------------------------------

Looked at the code,  Master-side DeleteTableHandler does the following steps:

# wait for related RITs to resolve
# delete entries from META
# mv table to /hbase/.tmp
# archive regions in /hbase/.tmp
# delete .tmp delete table dir
# update master table desc cache
# rm AM's zk entry (is this always present?).

HBaseAdmin waits for: 
# table meta entries to be deleted
# HMaster.getTableDescriptors file to be deleted

Matteo says the problem seems to be that the HMaster.getTableDescriptors looks at the hdfs
and file is "deleted" when move hdfs table data to .tmp.  (Thi sseems to say the table returns
as deleted before the .tmp stuff and ZK stuff is cleaned up.

Look like we could:

# use the same steps but check the .tmp dir for the tableinfo descriptor?  We could add a
getDeletingTableDescriptors method (that checks the .tmp delete dir) so the HBaseAdmin can
poll and waits until it is gone, or trigger on when the .tmp delete table dir is gone.
# use the AM's setDeletedTable/getDeletedTable znode as the last set? (need to look into this
more)
# Move table to temp before deleting from meta?

> Currently tables are created in the root directory, and the removal works on the root
directory.
> Change the code to use a /hbase/.tmp directory to make the creation and removal a bit
safer
> Table Creation steps
>  * Create the table descriptor (table folder, in /hbase/.tmp/)
>  * Create the table regions (always in temp)
>  * Move the table from temp to the root folder
>  * Add the regions to meta
>  * Trigger assignment
>  * Set enable flag in ZooKeeper
> Table Deletion steps
>  * Wait for regions in transition
>  * Remove regions from meta (use bulk delete)
>  * Move the table in /hbase/.tmp
>  * Remove the table from the descriptor cache
>  * Remove table from zookeeper
>  * Archive the table
> The main changes in the current code are:
>  * Writing to /hbase/.tmp and then rename
>  * using bulk delete in DeletionTableHandler
