Subject SIGSEGV in RocksDB when killing jobs
Date Wed, 14 Sep 2016 14:56:35 GMT
While testing with Samza 0.10.1 I noticed the following crash whenever I would kill a job that
uses a RocksDB store:

# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
#  SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x00007eff66b6c27e, pid=20315, tid=139636974364416

# Problematic frame:

I was able to tie this back to the RocksDB store being closed by both our StreamTask and the
SamzaContainer. We always close stores via CloseableTask#close just for housekeeping purposes.
Prior to this issue I was not aware that this also happens automatically in SamzaContainer#shutdownStores.
 When closed, KeyValueStorageEngine first calls flush() on the underlying store and there
is no guard to ensure that close has not already been called. The flush() call on a closed
DB is what seems to cause the crash. Obviously RocksDB should handle this more gracefully,
but I wonder if a patch is warranted for Samza also. Thoughts?
