Subject Re: Regions not getting reassigned if RS is brought down
Date Fri, 15 Jul 2011 04:07:47 GMT
I have narrowed it down to following :

 // Server to handle client requests
    String machineName = DNS.getDefaultHost(conf.get(
        "hbase.regionserver.dns.interface", "default"), conf.get(
        "hbase.regionserver.dns.nameserver", "default"));

I am not using the default interface for RS. I have changed it to 'eth1'
. The machineName is getting set as 'server-2.rfiserve.net.'
Notice the extra period in the end.

Because of above there is an inconsistency in the way zookeeper recorded the
regionserver address and way ServerManager had it in its cached list of
You will notice the extra dot in zookeeper entry but not in the ServerManager

[zk: localhost:2181(CONNECTED) 3] ls /hbase/rs

In ServerManager we do following :

void recordNewServer(HServerInfo info, boolean useInfoLoad,
      HRegionInterface hri) {
    HServerLoad load = useInfoLoad? info.getLoad(): new HServerLoad();
    String serverName = info.getServerName();
    LOG.info("Registering server=" + serverName + ", regionCount=" +
      load.getLoad() + ", userLoad=" + useInfoLoad);
    // TODO: Why did we update the RS location ourself?  Shouldn't RS do
    // masterStatus.getZooKeeper().updateRSLocationGetWatch(info, watcher);
    // -- If I understand the question, the RS does not update the location
    // because could be disagreement over locations because of DNS issues;
    // master does DNS now -- St.Ack 20100929.
    this.onlineServers.put(serverName, info);

In RegionServerTracker after node deletion but pre server expiration a map
lookup happens, it will lookup for server-2.domain.net.,60020,1310684522383
(with an extra period) but actual key in map is
(without the extra period)

  public void nodeDeleted(String path) {
    if(path.startsWith(watcher.rsZNode)) {
      String serverName = ZKUtil.getNodeName(path);
      LOG.info("RegionServer ephemeral node deleted, processing expiration
[" +
          serverName + "]");
      HServerInfo hsi = serverManager.getServerInfo(serverName);
      if(hsi == null) {
        LOG.info("No HServerInfo found for " + serverName);

The lookup will fail and expiration will never happen. I will get back when
I have more details on why the DNS is being returned as such.
An interesting question is - is it ok to not expire the region server when
we already deleted the entry of the RS from zookeeper.
