Master fails unexpectedly due to Feeder Output Halted log file reading at file 0x334f63 offset 0x8ce

User_BZQZ5Nov 7 2019 — edited Dec 17 2019

Hi

We have run into another occurrence of the issue reported as part of thread https://community.oracle.com/thread/4195598 . As that discussion thread is already archived, I decided to open a new discussion thread.

We have 3-nodes BDB JE HA cluster running with BDB JE 7.4.5.

Yesterday, the master node reported EnvironmentFailureException from Feeder Output thread. The exception was reported 3 times from different classes. The stack traces are provided below:

2019-11-06 19:33:54,031 ERROR [Feeder Output for node_1] (c.s.j.r.i.RepImpl) - node_2 Halted log file reading at file 0x334f63 offset 0x8ce9e offset(decimal)=577182 prev=0x8ce6c:

entry=DEL_LN_TXtype=31,version=14)

prev=0x8ce6c

size=27

Next entry should be at 0x8cecf

The application commits BDB JE transactions  using com.sleepycat.je.Transaction#commit(com.sleepycat.je.Durability) (where durability is configured as new Durability( SyncPolicy.NO_SYNC,  SyncPolicy.NO_SYNC, ReplicaAckPolicy.SIMPLE_MAJORITY))

The transaction syncing to disk is performed in a separate thread by invoking com.sleepycat.je.Environment#flushLog(true) (Essentially, after transaction commit the application is awaiting for #flushLog(true) to complete for multiple parallel transactions committed with local policy SyncPolicy.NO_SYNC ).  The syncing policy SyncPolicy.NO_SYNC is used intentionally as local syncing policy, in order to aggregate the syncing to disk of multiple parallel transactions using Environment#flushLog for performance optimization.

Whilst invoking com.sleepycat.je.Environment#flushLog(true), the EnvironmentFailureException was re-thrown again:

Usually, on running into BDB  JE issues reported with EnvironmentFailureException the application tries to recover from the problem by recreating the Environment instance and re-joining the new environment instance to the group, though, the exception thrown from EnvironmentImpl.flushLog are treated as terminal and cause JVM halt.

Potentially, the code can be changed to try to recreate the Environment even on exceptions thrown from EnvironmentImpl.flushLog, though that might results in not exactly right reaction on critical system issues like running out of dusk space or disk failures. I am not sure that Environment recreation would be a feasible approach to work-around the issue.

What could be the best way to work around the reported problem?

Can upgrade to BDB JE version 7.5.11 help to mitigate  the issue?

If more details about the issue is required, I can try to provide them. Though, the BDB JE files have gone after manual restart of the application. The restart recovers BDB JE environment.

Kind Regards,

Alex
