Subject Re: Recovery file versus directory

Looks like the only thing we have in the gc logs are:

DEBUG: deleted [hdfs://../accumulo/wal/<uuid> ...]
DEBUG: Removing sorted WAL hdfs://...<uuid>

I can't tell if they are before or after in time than when I deleted the 


Here's the other issue we were looking at:

FYI I originally increased the num WALs up to 8 to help batch write 
ingest...Now I've modified it only to be for the tables that needed 
ingest instead of the entire cluster, and reset the num WALs for the 
cluster back to 3, and I haven't had any errors since (3 days). Not sure 
why that would be a problem except for the few times that the metadata 
table was involved.
