In the world of NoSQL

HBase crashed for me this night, due to the extra leap second inserted (2012-06-30 23:59:60).


When attempting to restart HBase, it just didn’t start. I found this resource for a tip that might work to get it up (although I found it after rebooting my servers, so I didn’t try it):


All java processes(including all HDFS-related) were using 100% CPU, together with ksoftirq. I turned off ntpd autostart(chkconfig ntpd off), and rebooted the servers, and then started my HBase cluster back up. This solved the issue.
