      Description

      Currently decommissioning machines in HA-enabled cluster requires running refreshNodes in both active and standby nodes. Sometimes decommissioning won't finish from standby NN's point of view. Here is the diagnosis of why it could happen.

      Standby NN's blockManager manages blocks replication and block invalidation as if it is the active NN; even though DNs will ignore block commands coming from standby NN. When standby NN makes block operation decisions such as the target of block replication and the node to remove excess blocks from, the decision is independent of active NN. So active NN and standby NN could have different states. When we try to decommission nodes on standby nodes; such state inconsistency might prevent standby NN from making progress. Here is an example.

      Machine A
      Machine B
      Machine C
      Machine D
      Machine E
      Machine F
      Machine G
      Machine H

      1. For a given block, both active and standby have 5 replicas on machine A, B, C, D, E. So both active and standby decide to pick excess nodes to invalidate.

      Active picked D and E as excess DNs. After the next block reports from D and E, active NN has 3 active replicas (A, B, C), 0 excess replica.

      2014-03-27 01:50:14,410 INFO BlockStateChange: BLOCK* chooseExcessReplicates: (E:50010, blk_-5207804474559026159_121186764) is added to invalidated blocks set

      Standby pick C, E as excess DNs. Given DNs ignore commands from standby, After the next block reports from C, D, E, standby has 2 active replicas (A, B), 1 excess replica (C).

      2014-03-27 01:51:49,543 INFO BlockStateChange: BLOCK* chooseExcessReplicates: (E:50010, blk_-5207804474559026159_121186764) is added to invalidated blocks set
      2014-03-27 01:51:49,894 INFO BlockStateChange: BLOCK* chooseExcessReplicates: (C:50010, blk_-5207804474559026159_121186764) is added to invalidated blocks set
      

      2. Machine A decomm request was sent to standby. Standby only had one live replica and picked machine G, H as targets, but given standby commands was ignored by DNs, G, H remained in pending replication queue until they are timed out. At this point, you have one decommissioning replica (A), 1 active replica (B), one excess replica (C).

      2014-03-27 04:42:52,258 INFO BlockStateChange: BLOCK* ask A:50010 to replicate blk_-5207804474559026159_121186764 to datanode(s) G:50010 H:50010
      

      3. Machine A decomm request was sent to active NN. Active NN picked machine F as the target. It finished properly. So active NN had 3 active replicas (B, C, F), one decommissioned replica (A).

      2014-03-27 04:44:15,239 INFO BlockStateChange: BLOCK* ask 10.42.246.110:50010 to replicate blk_-5207804474559026159_121186764 to datanode(s) F:50010
      2014-03-27 04:44:16,083 INFO BlockStateChange: BLOCK* addStoredBlock: blockMap updated: F:50010 is added to blk_-5207804474559026159_121186764 size 7100065
      

      4. Standby NN picked up F as a new replica. Thus standby had one decommissioning replica (A), 2 active replicas (B, F), one excess replica (C). Standby NN kept trying to schedule replication work, but DNs ignored the commands.

      2014-03-27 04:44:16,084 INFO BlockStateChange: BLOCK* addStoredBlock: blockMap updated: F:50010 is added to blk_-5207804474559026159_121186764 size 7100065
