Subject Parttition_id parameter of HdfsScanNodeRange::AllocateScanRange
Date Tue, 08 Aug 2017 16:10:16 GMT

I'm currently working on IMPALA-5412
<> where I enhanced
FileDescMap to have a key of (partition_id, filename) pair instead of a
single filename.
With this I have to extend the HdfsScanNode::GetFileDesc to expect the
partition_id as well. In turn one of the functions calling this GetFileDesc
is HdfsScanNode::AllocateScanRange already has a partition_id as an input
parameter so it seemed obvious to pass that to GetFileDesc.
Unfortunately, after some debugging of the impala code that crashed during
the "Loading Kudu TPCH" phase of testing I observed that this
AllocateScanRange is sometimes given '-1' as a partition_id. (in one
occasion it is given a scalar_reader->col_idx() as partition_id.)
As a result no matching file descriptor is found by GetFileDesc where a
DCHECK fails.

I naively modified how AllocateScanRange is called to receive valid
partition IDs instead of '-1' and col_idx(). This fixes the issues I
encountered and mentioned above, however I'm not sure that this change
doesn't break some other logic. (Core tests are being run, but even if they
pass I'm not sure this change is fine)

Was it intentional to give those non-valid partition_id's to
AllocateScanRange? Do you see any risk of passing valid IDs instead?
