Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-432) support undelete, snapshots, or other mechanism to recover lost files
Date Sat, 02 Dec 2006 02:10:22 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-432?page=comments#action_12455068 ] 
Yoram Arnon commented on HADOOP-432:

-yes, trashSize should be kept up to date.
-I don't understand the concept of 'trash dir is full'. It's just a location in dfs - it can't
be full if the dfs isn't full.
-when taking out the trash, the idea is to remove the oldest items *only if they're older
than mintime*, until the trash size is under maxsize, and then stop. 
-size of the trash may be larger than maxsize if items in the trash are too new.
-if the DFS fills up then normal writes will fail until mintime is reached for some trash
items or mintime is decreased, or maxsize is decreased. 

-Perhaps an admin command than clears the trash now would help after a very large one-time
deletion of data.
