Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1557) Deletion of excess replicas should prefer to delete corrupted replicas before deleting valid replicas
Date Tue, 03 Jul 2007 17:37:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1557?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12509952
] 

dhruba borthakur commented on HADOOP-1557:
------------------------------------------

That sounds like a good policy. However, the bug I was pointing to occurs when setReplication()
is called to *decrease* the number of replicas. In this case, no data blocks are read.

> Suppose a block has three replicas and two of the replicas are corrupted. If the replication
factor of the file is reduced to 2. The filesystem should preferably delete the two corrupted
replicas, otherwise it could lead to a corrupted file.
> One option would be to make the datanode periodically validate all blocks with their
corresponding CRCs. The other option would be to make the setReplication call validate existing
replicas before deleting excess replicas.
