Balancer can hang in PendingBlockMove

Key: HDFS-871
URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-871
Project: Hadoop HDFS
Issue Type: Bug
Components: balancer
Affects Versions: 0.20.1
Environment: Yahoo 0.20
Reporter: Andrew Ryan

We started the balancer, with default options (-threshold 10), and it ran fine for a few hours, then hung. The process was still alive but no balancing was taking place.

At the time of the hang, jstack showed there were three threads in RUNNABLE status. Subsequent jstacks taken minutes and hours later showed the same three threads running in the same place, so I don't think this was a case where requests were being restarted, it looks like hangs. My best guess is, there's no timeout in the request to the namenode for these requests, and there needs to be.

I'll attach the full jstack output, but here's a sample thread, they are all stuck in the same place.
