Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-16788) Race in compacted file deletion between HStore close() and closeAndArchiveCompactedFiles()
Date Thu, 06 Oct 2016 23:15:20 GMT
Gary Helmling created HBASE-16788:

             Summary: Race in compacted file deletion between HStore close() and closeAndArchiveCompactedFiles()
                 Key: HBASE-16788
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-16788
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: regionserver
    Affects Versions: 1.3.0
            Reporter: Gary Helmling
            Assignee: Gary Helmling
            Priority: Blocker

HBASE-13082 changed the way that compacted files are archived from being done inline on compaction
completion to an async cleanup by the CompactedHFilesDischarger chore.  It looks like the
changes to HStore to support this introduced a race condition in the compacted HFile archiving.

In the following sequence, we can wind up with two separate threads trying to archive the
same HFiles, causing a regionserver abort:

# compaction completes normally and the compacted files are added to {{compactedfiles}} in
HStore's DefaultStoreFileManager
# *threadA*: CompactedHFilesDischargeHandler runs in a RS executor service, calling closeAndArchiveCompactedFiles()
## obtains HStore readlock
## gets a copy of compactedfiles
## releases readlock
# *threadB*: calls HStore.close() as part of region close
## obtains HStore writelock
## calls DefaultStoreFileManager.clearCompactedfiles(), getting a copy of same compactedfiles
# *threadA*: calls HStore.removeCompactedfiles(compactedfiles)
## archives files in {compactedfiles} in HRegionFileSystem.removeStoreFiles()
## call HStore.clearCompactedFiles()
## waits on write lock
# *threadB*: continues with close()
## calls removeCompactedfiles(compactedfiles)
## calls HRegionFIleSystem.removeStoreFiles() -> HFileArchiver.archiveStoreFiles()
## receives FileNotFoundException because the files have already been archived by threadA
## throws IOException
# RS aborts

I think the combination of fetching the compactedfiles list and removing the files needs to
be covered by locking.  Options I see are:
* Modify HStore.closeAndArchiveCompactedFiles(): use writelock instead of readlock and move
the call to removeCompactedfiles() inside the lock.  This means the read operations will be
blocked while the files are being archived, which is bad.
* Synchronize closeAndArchiveCompactedFiles() and modify close() to call it instead of calling
removeCompactedfiles() directly
* Add a separate lock for compacted files removal and use in closeAndArchiveCompactedFiles()
and close()
