datanode sending block reports to namenode once every second
------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HADOOP-1297
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1297
             Project: Hadoop
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: dfs
            Reporter: dhruba borthakur
         Assigned To: dhruba borthakur


The namenode is requesting a block to be deleted. The datanode tries this operation and encounters
an error because the block is not in the blockMap. The processCommand() method raises an exception.
The code is such that the variable lastBlockReport is not set if processCommand() raises an
exception. This means that the datanode immediately send another block report to the namenode.
The eats up quite a bit of CPU on namenode.

In short, the above condition causes the datanode to send blockReports almost once every second!

I propose that we do the following:

1. in Datanode.offerService, replace the following piece of code

DatanodeCommand cmd = namenode.blockReport(dnRegistration,
data.getBlockReport());
processCommand(cmd);
lastBlockReport = now;

with

DatanodeCommand cmd = namenode.blockReport(dnRegistration,
data.getBlockReport());
lastBlockReport = now;
processCommand(cmd);

2. In FSDataSet.invalidate:
a) continue to process all blocks in invalidBlks[] even if one in the middle encounters a
problem.
b) if getFile() returns null, still invoke volumeMap.get() and print whether we found the
block in
volumes or not. The volumeMap is used to generate the blockReport and this might help in debugging.
