Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-820) NameNode startup fails if edit log terminates prematurely
Date Tue, 23 Oct 2007 21:07:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-820?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12537138

Raghu Angadi commented on HADOOP-820:

Another related issue is that, currently when multiple directories are specified for Namenode,
it selects the directory that has the latest FSImage file and it reads edits log only from
that directory (instead of selecting the editslog with the latest mod time).

This and other issues will be covered in a new jira targeted for 0.16. Will keep it open 
until then.

>            Assignee: Raghu Angadi
>         Attachments: fixNameNodeStartup.patch
> I ran out of space on the device that stores the edit log, resulting in an edit log that
is truncated mid transaction.
> Ideally, the NameNode should start up, in SafeMode or the like, whenever this happens.
