Subject compaction thread always hitting exceptions
Date Tue, 22 Jul 2008 19:42:13 GMT
looking at our region logs, we've noticed that the compaction thread constantly 
runs into exceptions. the entire log is filled with something like this:

2008-07-22 12:29:52,759 WARN org.apache.hadoop.hbase.regionserver.HStore: 
Exception closing reader for 242866774/new
java.io.IOException: Stream closed
    at org.apache.hadoop.dfs.DFSClient$DFSInputStream.close(DFSClient.java:1319)

    at org.apache.hadoop.hbase.regionserver.HRegion.compactStores(HRegion.java:887)
    at org.apache.hadoop.hbase.regionserver.HRegion.compactStores(HRegion.java:847)

the regionserver is taking about up a good amount of memory on our system, and 
nothing is happening except for i assume compaction/split processes.

these only seem to be warnings, but there is so many of them, it would be nice 
to get a second opinion on this.

we've also gotten an 'out of memory' exception a few times from the compaction 
thread, and those actually ended up killing the thread, resulting in the region 
server shutting itself down.
