Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-11052) Sending random data crashes thrift service
Date Wed, 23 Apr 2014 08:19:15 GMT
Adrian Muraru created HBASE-11052:

             Summary: Sending random data crashes thrift service
                 Key: HBASE-11052
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-11052
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Thrift
    Affects Versions: 0.94.18, 0.98.1, 1.0.0
            Reporter: Adrian Muraru

Upstream thrift library has a know issue (THRIFT-601) causing the thrift server to crash with
an Out-of-Memory Error when bogus requests are sent.

This reproduces when a very large request size is sent in the request header, making the thrift
server to allocate a large memory segment leading to OOM.

LoadBalancer health checks are the first "candidate" for bogus requests
Thrift developers admit this is a known issue with TBinaryProtocol and their recommandation
is to use TCompactProtocol/TFramedTransport but this requires all thrift clients to be updated
(might not be feasible atm)

So we need a fix similar to CASSANDRA-475.
