>             Project: IMPALA
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Infrastructure
>    Affects Versions: Impala 2.6.0, Impala 2.8.0, Impala 2.9.0

> Using the following command usually fails within an hour: {{while [ $? -eq 0 ]; do ./
./custom_cluster/ --exploration_strategy=exhaustive -k test_minidump_relative_path
-x -s; done}}. The problem is, that only two of the three impalad processes will write a minidump,
while one of them won't. However in that case there is no breakpad related error message in
its logfile.
> Creating the {{minidump_base_dir}} seems to alleviate the problem, suggesting there might
be a race condition somewhere in the call to {{boost::filesystem::create_directories}}.
> This problem only seems to arise in the specific scenario of multiple impalad processes
sharing the same {{minidump_base_dir}} which also has to be non-existent. Outside of tests
it seems like it cannot occur.
