Subject Starting HBase from an old snapshot
Date Thu, 18 Sep 2008 18:24:28 GMT
The situation is quite simple: I'm just trying to launch an HBase instance from a hbase directory
in HDFS which was remaining inactive for a some period of time (in fact the HBase was just
running from a different directory on the same HDFS, it was something like a backup). But
for some reasons there has been some problems in launching it, which resulted in some exceptions,
mostly like this:

2008-09-18 12:35:53,995 INFO org.apache.hadoop.ipc.Server: IPC Server handler 2 on 60020 caught:
        at sun.nio.ch.SocketChannelImpl.ensureWriteOpen(SocketChannelImpl.java:125)
        at sun.nio.ch.SocketChannelImpl.write(SocketChannelImpl.java:294)

        at org.apache.hadoop.ipc.Server$Responder.doRespond(Server.java:654)
        at org.apache.hadoop.ipc.Server$Handler.run(Server.java:917)

and this:

2008-09-18 12:53:35,097 WARN org.apache.hadoop.hbase.regionserver.HRegionServer: Processing

        at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:595)

The snapshot was made while cleanly stopping of HBase and copying (or maybe moving, I'm not
really sure) it's folder to another location in DFS.
Even web interface of HBase have failed to launch, but it seems that that HBase is doing something
when it tries to launch: assigning some regions, creating/removing some blocks in HDFS, etc.
But finally it fails...

Does anyone have any ideas about the reasons of such a behavior?

P.S.: Hadoop 0.17.1, HBase 0.2.0, Debian Etch
