If our read of https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5898 is correct
it talks about three issues:
#1 Contention on a lock causing bad performance
#2 HDFS slowness causing IPC handlers blocked for large times.
#3 A mysterious bug which causes what looks like a deadlock
In out environment we are seeing #3 (ish) signals. Attached is the stack
trace. One of our region server got blocked (almost all of IPC handlers)
for 11 hours, so it can not be #1 OR #2.
We have not back ported the patch yet so cant say if it fixes the issue or
not. Also it is difficult to reproduce. There is a rumor that a program to
reproduce this issue exist, does it?
Eager to hear thoughts.
