Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-16115) Missing security context in RegionObserver coprocessor when a compaction/split is triggered manually
Date Wed, 29 Jun 2016 05:00:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-16115?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15354543#comment-15354543

Andrew Purtell commented on HBASE-16115:
----------------------------------------

What we are discussing as a problem on this JIRA was a bug fix refining an earlier behavioral
change to match legacy expectations on another bug report. Calling a change here a fix isn't
the whole story. From another point of view it would be a revert of a fix for a regression.

>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 0.98.20
>            Reporter: Lars Hofhansl

> We ran into an interesting phenomenon which can easily render a cluster unusable.
> We loaded some tests data into a test table and forced a manual compaction through the
UI. We have some compaction hooks implemented in a region observer, which writes back to another
HBase table when the compaction finishes. We noticed that this coprocessor is not setup correctly,
it seems the security context is missing.
> The interesting part is that this _only_ happens when the compaction is triggere through
the UI. Automatic compactions (major or minor) or when triggered via the HBase shell (folling
a kinit) work fine. Only the UI-triggered compactions cause this issues and lead to essentially
neverending compactions, immovable regions, etc.
> Not sure what exactly the issue is, but I wanted to make sure I capture this.
> [~apurtell], [~ghelmling], FYI.
