             Summary: Possible deadlock during shutdown in setState in kafka streams 10.2
                 Key: KAFKA-5571
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-5571
             Project: Kafka
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: streams
    Affects Versions: 0.10.2.1
            Reporter: Greg Fodor
         Attachments: kafka-streams.deadlock.log

I'm running a 10.2 job across 5 nodes with 32 stream threads on each node and find that when
gracefully shutdown all of them at once via an ansible scripts, some of the nodes end up freezing
-- at a glance the attached thread dump implies a deadlock between stream threads trying to
update their state via setState. We haven't had this problem before but it may or may not
be related to changes in 10.2 (we are upgrading from 10.0 to 10.2)

when we gracefully shutdown all nodes simultaneously, what typically happens is some subset
of the nodes end up not shutting down completely but end up going through a rebalance first.
it seems this deadlock requires this rebalancing to occur simultaneously with the graceful
shutdown. if we happen to shut them down and no rebalance happens, i don't believe this deadlock
is triggered.

the deadlock appears related to the state change handlers being subscribed across threads
and the fact that both StreamThread#setState and StreamStateListener#onChange are both synchronized
methods.

Another thing worth mentioning is that one of the transformers used in the job has a close()
method that can take 10-15 seconds to finish since it needs to flush some data to a database.
Having a long close() method combined with a rebalance during a shutdown across many threads
may be necessary for reproduction.
