Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-11667) Simplify ClientScanner logic for NSREs.
Date Mon, 04 Aug 2014 23:49:14 GMT
Lars Hofhansl created HBASE-11667:

             Summary: Simplify ClientScanner logic for NSREs.
                 Key: HBASE-11667
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-11667
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Lars Hofhansl
            Assignee: Lars Hofhansl
             Fix For: 0.99.0, 2.0.0, 0.94.23, 0.98.6

We ran into an issue with Phoenix where a RegionObserver coprocessor intercepts a scan and
returns an aggregate (in this case a count) with a fake row key. It turns out this does not
work when the {{ClientScanner}} encounters NSREs, as it uses the last key it saw to reset
the scanner to try again (which in this case would be the fake key).

While this is arguably a rare case and one could also argue that a region observer just shouldn't
do this... While looking at {{ClientScanner}}'s code I found this logic not necessary.
A NSRE occurred because we contacted a region server with a key that it no longer hosts. This
is the start key, so it is always correct to retry with this same key. That simplifies the
ClientScanner logic and also make this sort of coprocessors possible,
