Yu Li updated HBASE-14891:
    Attachment: HBASE-14891.patch

Attaching the straight forward patch. I believe this could also help us avoid ignoring potential
issue when adding/modifying metrics in future.

> We are using ScheduledExecutorService#scheduleWithFixedDelay to periodically reporting
metrics. From javadoc of this method
> {quote}
> If any execution of the task encounters an exception, subsequent executions are suppressed.
> {quote}
> We could see if any uncaught exception like NPE thrown in the task thread, there won't
be any error thrown but the task would be silently terminated.
> In our real case we were making some modification to the metrics and causing NPE carelessly,
then we found metrics disappeared but cannot get a clue from RS log.
> Suggest to catch Throwable in MetricsRegionServerWrapperImpl$RegionServerMetricsWrapperRunnable,
add some log there and suppress the exception to give it another try at next scheduled run.
