  • Weird things discovered while running Coordinator Recovery

Note: This works:

start coord
start master m1
start master m2
crash coord
start master m3

Everything goes as expected. When started, m3 gets the entire server list, including entries for m1 and m2.

Also repeated this more times. As in,

start coord
start master m1
start master m2
crash coord
start master m3
crash coord
start master m4
crash coord
start master m5

Works fine.


1.

start coord
start master m1
start master m2
crash master m2

Reaction:
Tries to recover the backup on m2 even though I started the master with explicitly no backups (options: -M r=0)

Ryan's suggestion for a quick hack fix:
In BackupFailureMonitor.cc - in constructor for BackupFailureMonitor, change the initializer tracker(context, this) to tracker(context).

That worked for now.

Pulled in the most recent code, added some more log messages to debug, and ran it again. Here's what the coord had to say:

3.

start coord: rc10
start master: rc01
start master: rc02
start master: rc03
crash master: rc02
start master: rc04

weird thing:

rc04 gets entire server list (rc01, rc02, rc03, rc04), in which rc02 has status crashed (status number: 1). Why isn't this server entirely gone?


4.

start coord: rc10
start master: rc01
start master: rc02
start master: rc03
crash master: rc02
start master: rc04 (as in point 3: gets entire server list, including rc02, which has status crashed)
crash coord: rc10
restart coord: rc10

Reaction:

rc03, rc10 (coord): nothing

rc01:

1347303047.493191417 src/ServerList.cc:114 in ServerList::applyServerList default NOTICE[24017:3]: A repeated/old update version 1 was sent to a ServerList with version 5.

(see implications below)


4 & 5 =>

Problem 1:

Server list received by rc05 has version number is 3 (which is an older number if you consider the server list version numbers that the masters have already seen). Also, in point 4 and 5, the other servers are receiving updates with older numbers, that indicates the same problem. This is to be expected since we're rebuilding server list from scratch on coordinator recovery, and not keeping around the old version number. After more work on serverlist (RAM-453, RAM-455, and possibly some more) this will hopefully not be an issue anymore.

Problem 2:

Server rc03 disappeared during the coordinator recovery in point 4. This is clear in the server list received by rc05, and was also indicated in point 4 when servers rc01 and rc04 received (old / redundant) serverlist updates, but rc03 didn't. To confirm, i started another master rc06. This server was assigned server id 3 (reused from rc03 going out of the cluster).

Working hypothesis: crashing rc02 appends a serverdown entry to logcabin. Till ongaro implements a cleaner in logcabin, i have a workaround method readValidEntries() in LogCabinHelper that cleans up all the entries read to remove the invalidated entries. This method assumes that the order number of any particular entry corresponds to the entry id. This is not true. Update: Fixed.
