Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-9457) Master could fail start if region server with system table is down
Date Sun, 15 Sep 2013 19:18:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-9457?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13767881#comment-13767881

Francis Liu commented on HBASE-9457:

Looked at the patch. It seems the zk namespace data gets stale with this approach. Since the
namespace table is lazily loaded, this causes the namespace zk information to be lazily loaded
as well. Which causes the data read by zkNM clients to be stale until one of the namespace
apis are invoked which seems to be unbounded.

I think there are two other options:

1. move zkNM to a region observer coprocessor
2. roll namespace table into the meta handler classes (metaWAL, metaSSH, etc)

If time is a concern we can just remove zkNM and address it in a separate jira.

Good catch on the race condition with the janitor. I'll address that in HBASE-9540.
