Configuring snappy left minor compaction hung. #920
While runnning continuous ingest on EC2 using 2.0.0-alpha-2 I tried configuring snappy and this threw an exception. This seemed to have left the tablets in a bad state, because when I set compression back to gzip the tablets never tried to compact again. I had to kill the tservers. Ideally this problem would work itself out when config is updated.
Below are some of the exceptions seen on the tserver.
The UnsatisfiedLinkError should have been handled by the native-loading code in the Hadoop compression library we're using, and transformed into an IOException or another (non-Error) Exception. We might want to file a bug in upstream Hadoop regarding this... because the Hadoop compression API shouldn't be exposing the native code loading behavior from its internals via this Throwable.
