Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-14190) Assign system tables ahead of user region assignment
Date Thu, 29 Jun 2017 04:17:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-14190?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16067704#comment-16067704

Allan Yang commented on HBASE-14190:

We are sometimes facing master take a long time to be inited because of namespace table not
assigned either. This issue and HBASE-16488 is solving this problem in branch-1. To my understand,
the namespace table is the only system table blocking master from startup. Since this issue
and HBASE-16488 have both provide a complex patch and not committed for a long time. Here
I offer a simple but (maybe)hack solution to discuss:
In {{openRegion}} of RSRpcServices, we have one thread only for OpenMetaHandler to open meta
region, namespace table region and other regions are opened in a shared thread pool. since
1. the one thread for  OpenMetaHandler is never used after meta have been assigned
2. namespace region always assign after meta region is assigned when cluster restart
 Why not use this thread for namespace table region opening?
The changes are simple, something like this:
 // If there is no action in progress, we can submit a specific handler.
          // Need to pass the expected version in the constructor.
          if (region.isMetaRegion() || region.isNamespaceTable()) { //assign namespace table
using OpenMetaHandler
            regionServer.service.submit(new OpenMetaHandler(
              regionServer, regionServer, region, htd, masterSystemTime, coordination, ord));
          } else {

> Currently the namespace table region is assigned like user regions.
> I spent several hours working with a customer where master couldn't finish initialization.
> Even though master was restarted quite a few times, it went down with the following:

> During previous run(s), namespace table was created, hence leaving an entry in hbase:meta.
> The following if block in TableNamespaceManager#start() was skipped:
> {code}
>     if (!MetaTableAccessor.tableExists(masterServices.getConnection(),
>       TableName.NAMESPACE_TABLE_NAME)) {
> {code}
> TableNamespaceManager#start() spins, waiting for namespace region to be assigned.
> There was issue in master assigning user regions.
> We tried issuing 'assign' command from hbase shell which didn't work because of the following
check in MasterRpcServices#assignRegion():
> {code}
>       master.checkInitialized();
> {code}
> This scenario can be avoided if we assign hbase:namespace table after hbase:meta is assigned
but before user table region assignment.
