Subject [jira] Resolved: (NUTCH-258) Once Nutch logs a SEVERE log item, Nutch fails forevermore
Date Tue, 13 Feb 2007 15:03:06 GMT


Chris A. Mattmann resolved NUTCH-258.

    Resolution: Cannot Reproduce

With recent API changes to Hadoop, and with the note from Scott (the original reporter), it
seems that this issue is no longer causing people problems. Therefore, I believe that this
issue can be closed.

> Once a SEVERE log item is written, Nutch shuts down any fetching forevermore.  This is
from the run() method in
>     public void run() {
>       synchronized (Fetcher.this) {activeThreads++;} // count threads
>       try {
>         UTF8 key = new UTF8();
>         CrawlDatum datum = new CrawlDatum();
>         while (true) {
>           if (LogFormatter.hasLoggedSevere())     // something bad happened
>             break;                                // exit
> Notice the last 2 lines.  This will prevent Nutch from ever Fetching again once this
is hit as LogFormatter is storing this data as a static.
> (Also note that "LogFormatter.hasLoggedSevere()" is also checked in
and will disable this class as well.)
> This must be fixed or Nutch cannot be run as any kind of long-running service.  Furthermore,
I believe it is a poor decision to rely on a logging event to determine the state of the application
- this could have any number of side-effects that would be extremely difficult to track down.
 (As it has already for me.)
