A Jenkins build we have running failed twice in a row with issues form TestFileAppend4.testAppendSyncReplication1 in an attempt to reproduce the error I ran TestFileAppend4 in a loop over night saving the results away. (No clean was done in between test runs)
When TestFileAppend4 is run in a loop the testAppendSyncReplication tests fail about 10% of the time (14 times out of 130 tries) They all fail with something like the following. Often it is only one of the tests that fail, but I have seen as many as two fail in one run.
I also saw several other tests that are a part of TestFileApped4 fail during this experiment. They may all be related to one another so I am filing them in the same JIRA. If it turns out that they are not related then they can be split up later.
testAppendSyncBlockPlusBbw failed 6 out of the 130 times or about 5% of the time
testAppendSyncChecksum failed 2 out of the 130 times or about 1.5% of the time
I will attach logs for all of the failures. Be aware that I did change some of the logging messages in this test so I could better see when testAppendSyncReplication started and ended. Other then that the code is stock 0.20.205 RC2
