Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-10222) Periodically attempt to delete failed snapshot deletions on Windows
Date Wed, 02 Sep 2015 02:24:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-10222?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14726616#comment-14726616
] 

Stefania commented on CASSANDRA-10222:
--------------------------------------

Looks much better now. Just one comment:

* When we catch the exception in {{Directories.clearSnapshot()}} did you mean to retry immediately
by calling {{run()}}? I think not because the constructor will also submit the task. 

It was a nice idea to add the call to {{CompactionExecutor.afterExecute}}, all compaction
operations go though this executor right?

I noticed you haven't run CI yet. I suppose it makes more sense to run it on Windows than
on Linux?

> The changes in CASSANDRA-9658 leave us in a position where a node on Windows will have
to be restarted to clear out snapshots that cannot be deleted at request time due to sstables
still being mapped, thus preventing deletions of hard links. A simple periodic task to categorize
failed snapshot deletions and retry them would help prevent node disk utilization from growing
unbounded by snapshots as compaction will eventually make these snapshot files deletable.
> Given that hard links to files in NTFS don't take up any extra space on disk so long
as the original file still exists, the only limitation for users from this approach will be
the inability to 'move' a snapshot file to another drive share. They will be copyable, however,
so it's a minor platform difference.
> This goes directly against the goals of CASSANDRA-8271 and will likely be built on top
of that code. Until such time as we get buffered performance in-line with memory-mapped, this
is an interim necessity for production roll-outs.
