Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
File renaming operations took non-blocking locks, which meant that they could fail with EBUSY or ESTALE errors when other rename or rebalance operations were in progress. This could lead to a lack of application continuity when the file renaming operation did not succeed. Blocking locks are now used for file renaming operations, so that file operations are blocked until the lock releases. When the file renaming operation is granted the lock, the application continues with the renaming operation, avoiding applicaton continuity problems.

Description Rahul Hinduja 2016-02-09 06:29:15 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1304966 +++

Description of problem:
DHT takes non-blocking locks while renaming files. During parallel renames and parallel rebalance and rename clients might fail with EBUSY or ESTALE errors. Hence to avoid application discontinuity renaming of files must take blocking locks.

Hence it is better to take blocking locks for renaming files.

Verified the bug in build - glusterfs-server-3.7.9-2.el7rhgs.x86_64. 

Performed renames and lookup from different mount point on multiple dirs, no issues were seen with renames, no error messages were seen in the logs. renames completed successfully.
