Subject [jira] [Updated] (CASSANDRA-6648) Race condition during node bootstrapping
Date Tue, 04 Feb 2014 22:54:19 GMT


Brandon Williams updated CASSANDRA-6648:

    Attachment: 6648-v3.txt

v3, influenced by my last comment, removes the MM subscription to gossip and instead is notified
by SS after it has completed any onAlive/onJoin events.  isFatClient doesn't check aliveness,
and MM.passiveAnnounce remains since that's the only the schema state gets populated in gossip.

> When bootstrapping a new node, data is "missing" as if the new node didn't actually bootstrap,
which I tracked down to the following scenario:
> 1) New node joins token ring and waits for schema to be settled before actually bootstrapping.
> 2) The schema scheck somewhat passes and it starts bootstrapping.
> 3) Bootstrapping doesn't find the ks/cf that should have received from the other node.
> 4) Queries at this point cause NPEs, until when later they "recover" but data is missed.
> The problem seems to be caused by a race condition between the migration manager and
the bootstrapper, with the former running after the latter.
> I think this is supposed to protect against such scenarios:
> {noformat}
>             while (!MigrationManager.isReadyForBootstrap())
>             {
>                 setMode(Mode.JOINING, "waiting for schema information to complete", true);
>                 Uninterruptibles.sleepUninterruptibly(1, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
>             }
> {noformat}
> But MigrationManager.isReadyForBootstrap() implementation is quite fragile and doesn't
take into account "slow" schema propagation.
