Date Mon, 13 May 2013 16:21:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-8367?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13656073#comment-13656073

Ted Yu commented on HBASE-8367:

The four LoadIncrementalHFiles related tests passed by Hadoop QA.

Will integrate Brian's patch soon.

>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: mapreduce
>    Affects Versions: 0.92.1, 0.92.2
>         Environment: Red Hat 6.2 
> Java 1.6.0_26
> Hadoop 2.0.0-mr1-cdh4.1.1
> HBase 0.92.1-cdh4.1.1
>            Reporter: Brian Dougan
>            Assignee: Brian Dougan
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 0.94.8
>         Attachments: LoadIncrementalFiles-HBASE-8367.patch
> The LoadIncrementalHFiles (completebulkload) command will exit with a success code (or
lack of Exception) when one or more of the HFiles fail to be imported through a few ways (mainly
when timeouts occur).  Instead, it simply logs error messages to the log which makes it difficult
to automate the import of HFiles programmatically.   
> The heart of the LoadIncrementalHFiles class (doBulkLoad) returns void and has essentially
the following structure.
> {code:title=LoadIncrementalHFiles.java}
> try {
>       ...
>     } finally {
>       pool.shutdown();
>       if (queue != null && !queue.isEmpty()) {
>         StringBuilder err = new StringBuilder();
>         err.append("-------------------------------------------------\n");
>         err.append("Bulk load aborted with some files not yet loaded:\n");
>         err.append("-------------------------------------------------\n");
>         for (LoadQueueItem q : queue) {
>           err.append("  ").append(q.hfilePath).append('\n');
>         }
>         LOG.error(err);
>       }
>     }
> {code}
> As you can see, instead of returning an error code, a success indicator, or simply throwing
an Exception, an error message is sent to the log.  This results in something like the following
in the logs.

> Bulk load aborted with some files not yet loaded:
> -------------------------------------------------
>   hdfs://prmdprod/user/userxxx/hfile/TABLE-1365721885510/record/_tmp/TABLE,2.bottom
>   hdfs://prmdprod/user/userxxx/hfile/TABLE-1365721885510/record/_tmp/TABLE,2.top

> Without some sort of indication, it's not currently possible to chain this command to
another or to programmatically consume this class and be certain of a successful import.
> This class should be enhanced to return non-success in whatever way makes sense to the
community.  I don't really have a strong preference, but one of the following should work
fine (at least for my needs).
> * boolean return value on doBulkLoad (non-zero on run method)
> * Response object on doBulkLoad detailing the files that failed (non-zero on run method)
> * throw Exception in the finally block when files failed after the error is written to
the log (should automatically cause non-zero on run method)
> It would also be nice to get this to the 0.94.x stream so it get included in the next
Cloudera release.  Thanks!
