Subject corrupt WAL and Java Heap Space...
Date Fri, 15 Jul 2011 16:32:34 GMT

   Yesterday we ran into an interesting issue.  We were shutting down our HBase cluster (
0.90.1 CDH3u0 ) and in the process one of the nodes encountered a Java heap space exception.
 The bummer is the log file was listed as corrupt from hadoop fsck and was unable to be read
when re-starting the database.  We were able to recover in our situation by removing the corrupt
log and did not appear to lose any data.

    Has anyone else seen this issue?  If I'm reading the situation right it looks like that
a Java heap space error during the WAL checksum write could leave the WAL corrupt which doesn't
seem like desired behavior.

    I'll looking into it further but any thoughts would be appreciated.
