Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-11099) Two situations where we could open a region with smaller sequence number
Date Wed, 30 Apr 2014 19:36:15 GMT

stack commented on HBASE-11099:
-------------------------------

Calling a sync while writes are blocked on this store would not be the end of the world. 
When the sync comes out the otherside, I know all of my region edits have been pushed through
ahead of it.  Syncs happen at a rate of many per ms -- in last measure over in hbase-10156
it had us syncing over a 15 minute period at almost 4 times a ms -- so would be a bit of a
speed bump but probably not too bad.

> Recently I happened to run into code where we potentially could open region with smaller
sequence number:
> 1) Inside function: HRegion#internalFlushcache. This is due to we change the way WAL
Sync where we use late binding(assign sequence number right before wal sync).
> The flushSeqId may less than the change sequence number included in the flush which may
cause later region opening code to use a smaller than expected sequence number when we reopen
the region.
> {code}
> flushSeqId = this.sequenceId.incrementAndGet();
> ...
> mvcc.waitForRead(w);
> {code}
> 2) HRegion#replayRecoveredEdits where we have following code:
> {code}
> ...
>           if (coprocessorHost != null) {
>             status.setStatus("Running pre-WAL-restore hook in coprocessors");
>             if (coprocessorHost.preWALRestore(this.getRegionInfo(), key, val)) {
>               // if bypass this log entry, ignore it ...
>               continue;
>             }
>           }
> ...
>           currentEditSeqId = key.getLogSeqNum();
> {code} 
> If coprocessor skip some tail WALEdits, then the function will return smaller currentEditSeqId.
In the end, a region may also open with a smaller sequence number. This may cause data loss
because Master may record a larger flushed sequence Id and some WALEdits maybe skipped during
recovery if the region fail again.
