Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-10185) HBaseClient retries even though a DoNotRetryException was thrown
Date Thu, 06 Feb 2014 14:56:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-10185?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13893409#comment-13893409
] 

Nicolas Liochon commented on HBASE-10185:
-----------------------------------------

looking more at the code, it seems that writeRequest could send an exception if it fails during
the write. Then this exception could be thrown by the caller, w/o risking to send an exception
created by somebody else.

> Throwing a DoNotRetryIOException inside  Writable.write(Dataoutput) method doesn't prevent
HBase from retrying. Debugging the code locally, I figured that the bug lies in the way HBaseClient
simply throws an IOException when it sees that a connection has been closed unexpectedly.
 
> Method:
> public Writable call(Writable param, InetSocketAddress addr,
>                        Class<? extends VersionedProtocol> protocol,
>                        User ticket, int rpcTimeout)
> Excerpt of code where the bug is present:
> while (!call.done) {
>         if (connection.shouldCloseConnection.get()) {
>           throw new IOException("Unexpected closed connection");
>         }
> Throwing this IOException causes the ServerCallable.translateException(t) to be a no-op
resulting in HBase retrying. 
> From my limited view and understanding of the code, one way I could think of handling
this is by looking at the closeConnection member variable of a connection to determine what
kind of exception should be thrown. 
> Specifically, when a connection is closed, the current code does this: 
>     protected synchronized void markClosed(IOException e) {
>       if (shouldCloseConnection.compareAndSet(false, true)) {
>         closeException = e;
>         notifyAll();
>       }
>     }
> Within HBaseClient's call method, the code could possibly be modified to:
> while (!call.done) {
>         if (connection.shouldCloseConnection.get() ) {
>                  if(connection.closeException instanceof                   DoNotRetryIOException)
{
> throw closeException;
> }
>           throw new IOException("Unexpected closed connection");
>         }
