Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-16093) Splits failed before creating daughter regions leave meta inconsistent
Date Thu, 23 Jun 2016 17:58:16 GMT
Elliott Clark created HBASE-16093:
-------------------------------------

             Summary: Splits failed before creating daughter regions leave meta inconsistent
                 Key: HBASE-16093
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-16093
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Elliott Clark
            Priority: Critical


This is on branch-1 based code only.


Here's the sequence of events.

# A regionserver opens a new region. That regions looks like it should split.
# So the regionserver starts a split transaction.
# Split transaction starts execute
# Split transaction encounters an error in stepsBeforePONR
# Split transaction starts rollback
# Split transaction notifies master that it's rolling back using HMasterRpcServices#reportRegionStateTransition
# AssignmentManager#onRegionTransition is called with SPLIT_REVERTED
# AssignmentManager#onRegionSplitReverted is called.
# That onlines the parent region and offlines the daughter regions.

However the daughter regions were never created in meta so all that gets done is that state
for those rows gets OFFLINE. Now all clients trying to get the parent instead get the offline
daughter.
