Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1139) All block trasitions should be logged at log level INFO

Sameer Paranjpye commented on HADOOP-1139:

> What's the motivation to log these at INFO? Is there any reason I would care about block
transition messages if I were not debugging hadoop?

Block related errors (blocks getting lost, having too many or too few replicas etc.) are very
hard to diagnose without a history of block events. These bugs are frequently exposed by running
systems and the circumstances in which they occur can be hard to reproduce in a testbed. If
you lost a block on your HDFS installation, you would want to know why, that answer can be
obtained with much less pain if there is a trail to follow.

> The namenode records block trasitions in its log file. It is seen that some of the block
transition messages were being logged at debug level. These should be done at INFO level.
