Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-11405) Multiple invocations of hbck in parallel disables balancer permanently
Date Wed, 25 Jun 2014 22:36:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-11405?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14044140#comment-14044140

Andrew Purtell commented on HBASE-11405:
----------------------------------------

Use a 0 length file in HDFS as the lock. Present an interactive option for the user to ignore
the lock file and proceed.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-11405
>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Balancer, hbck
>    Affects Versions: 0.99.0
>            Reporter: bharath v
>
> This is because of the following piece of code in hbck
> {code:borderStyle=solid}
>   boolean oldBalancer = admin.setBalancerRunning(false, true);
>     try {
>       onlineConsistencyRepair();
>     }
>     finally {
>       admin.setBalancerRunning(oldBalancer, false);
>     }
> {code}
> Newer invocations set oldBalancer to false as it was disabled by previous invocations
and this disables balancer permanently unless its manually turned on by the user. Easy to
reproduce, just run hbck 100 times in a loop in 2 different sessions and you can see that
balancer is set to false in the HMaster logs.
