Subject Re: BK servers in a funky state

Flavio -

I really appreciate your prompt response. Some quick background - we use
some of the hadoop technologies for storage, coordination, and processing.
Recently we wanted to add a write-ahead-log to our infrastructure so that
clients could record "transactions" prior to executing them - such as
updates going to an API or processing of an event. I've written a set of
tools that use BK as a generic write-ahead-logger. Clients (using zookeeper
for coordination) can create named write ahead logs with custom chunking
(how frequently a new ledger is created - based on size/time). Once a
ledger has rolled-over (or a client crashes), a persister (monitoring ZK)
reads that ledger and persists it to S3/HDFS as hadoop sequence files where
a map-reduce process can reconcile it. The ledger is then deleted from BK.
This is all done using ZK in a fashion where (hopefully) once a client has
written any data to the ledger it will always end up on S3/HDFS (via BK)
even if the client crashes (the persister will always know which ledger
belongs to which log and which ledgers are currently in use).

Does that sound like an appropriate use of BK? It seemed like a natural fit
as a durable storage solution until something can reliably get it to a
place where it would ultimately be archived and could be
reprocessed/reconciled (S3/HDFS).

As for the bug fix you mentioned, this gist shows the logs from the cut i
made this morning:


As you can see, there are still some exceptions and error messages that
repeat (forever). This is the newest cut available on github, last commit

BOOKKEEPER-207: BenchBookie doesn't run correctly (ivank via fpj)


What are your thoughts? Thanks!
