Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-10595) HBaseAdmin.getTableDescriptor can wrongly get the previous table's TableDescriptor even after the table dir in hdfs is removed
Date Mon, 24 Feb 2014 19:21:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-10595?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13910694#comment-13910694

Enis Soztutar commented on HBASE-10595:
---------------------------------------

Going to NN for checking whether table dir exists basically means that we should not be using
the cache at all. Users are expected to not delete the table directory from the file system,
which will cause further inconsistencies. Why do you think this is a problem?

> When a table dir (in hdfs) is removed(by outside), HMaster will still return the cached
TableDescriptor to client for getTableDescriptor request.
> On the contrary, HBaseAdmin.listTables() is handled correctly in current implementation,
for a table whose table dir in hdfs is removed by outside, getTableDescriptor can still retrieve
back a valid (old) table descriptor, while listTables says it doesn't exist, this is inconsistent
> The reason for this bug is because HMaster (via FSTableDescriptors) doesn't check if
the table dir exists for getTableDescriptor() request, (while it lists all existing table
dirs(not firstly respects cache) and returns accordingly for listTables() request)
> When a table is deleted via deleteTable, the cache will be cleared after the table dir
and tableInfo file is removed, listTables/getTableDescriptor inconsistency should be transient(though
still exists, when table dir is removed while cache is not cleared) and harder to expose
