      When I restarted my hbase cluster a certain time, I noticed some regions are in FAILED_OPEN state and the RegionServers have some error logs as following:

      When I look the code of Index.preWALRestore method, I find RecoveryIndexWriter.write method is used to write the indexUpdates in following line 543:

      526  public void preWALRestore(ObserverContext<RegionCoprocessorEnvironment> env, HRegionInfo info,
      527      HLogKey logKey, WALEdit logEdit) throws IOException {
      528      if (this.disabled) {
      529          super.preWALRestore(env, info, logKey, logEdit);
      530          return;
      531        }
      532    // TODO check the regions in transition. If the server on which the region lives is this one,
      533    // then we should rety that write later in postOpen.
      534    // we might be able to get even smarter here and pre-split the edits that are server-local
      535    // into their own recovered.edits file. This then lets us do a straightforward recovery of each
      536    // region (and more efficiently as we aren't writing quite as hectically from this one place).
      538    /*
      539     * Basically, we let the index regions recover for a little while long before retrying in the
      540     * hopes they come up before the primary table finishes.
      541     */
      542    Collection<Pair<Mutation, byte[]>> indexUpdates = extractIndexUpdate(logEdit);
      543    recoveryWriter.write(indexUpdates, true);
      544  }

      but the RecoveryIndexWriter.write method is as following, it directly throws Exception except non-existing tables, so RecoveryIndexWriter's failurePolicy(which is StoreFailuresInCachePolicy by default) even has no opportunity to be used, and it leads to Index.failedIndexEdits which is filled by the StoreFailuresInCachePolicy is always empty.

       public void write(Collection<Pair<Mutation, byte[]>> toWrite, boolean allowLocalUpdates) throws IOException {
              try {
                  write(resolveTableReferences(toWrite), allowLocalUpdates);
              } catch (MultiIndexWriteFailureException e) {
                  for (HTableInterfaceReference table : e.getFailedTables()) {
                      if (!admin.tableExists(table.getTableName())) {
                          LOG.warn("Failure due to non existing table: " + table.getTableName());
                      } else {
                          throw e;

      So the Index.postOpen method seems useless, because the updates Multimap in following 500 line which is got from Index.failedIndexEdits is always empty.

      499  public void postOpen(final ObserverContext<RegionCoprocessorEnvironment> c) {
      500     Multimap<HTableInterfaceReference, Mutation> updates = failedIndexEdits.getEdits(c.getEnvironment().getRegion());
      502     if (this.disabled) {
      503         super.postOpen(c);
      504         return;
      505      }
      507     //if we have no pending edits to complete, then we are done
      508     if (updates == null || updates.size() == 0) {
      509       return;
      510      }
      512     LOG.info("Found some outstanding index updates that didn't succeed during"
      513            + " WAL replay - attempting to replay now.");
      515     // do the usual writer stuff, killing the server again, if we can't manage to make the index
      516     // writes succeed again
      517     try {
      518        writer.writeAndKillYourselfOnFailure(updates, true);
      519     } catch (IOException e) {
      520              LOG.error("During WAL replay of outstanding index updates, "
      521                    + "Exception is thrown instead of killing server during index writing", e);
      522    }
      523  }

      So I think in Index.preWALRestore method, we should use RecoveryWriter.writeAndKillYourselfOnFailure method to write the indexUpdates and handle index write failure, not just use the RecoveryIndexWriter.write method.
