Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-3787) Increment is non-idempotent but client retries RPC
Date Wed, 08 May 2013 22:47:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-3787?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13652453#comment-13652453

stack commented on HBASE-3787:
------------------------------

bq. Hmm... that is possible, however still leaves the client guessing with regard to operation's
success.

How? We reject on the way in before any operation has happened so client knows its attempt
failed?

bq. That is actually a deterministic value which can easily be duplicated by moving system
clock back as far as I see

Yes.  Presumes non-malicious clients.

Good on you Sergey.

> The HTable.increment() operation is non-idempotent. The client retries the increment
RPC a few times (as specified by configuration) before throwing an error to the application.
This makes it possible that the same increment call be applied twice at the server.
> For increment operations, is it better to use HConnectionManager.getRegionServerWithoutRetries()?
Another  option would be to enhance the IPC module to make the RPC server correctly identify
if the RPC is a retry attempt and handle accordingly.
