Subject [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-2890) HDFS should recover when replicas of block have different sizes (due to corrupted block)
Date Tue, 11 Mar 2008 18:34:46 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2890?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

dhruba borthakur updated HADOOP-2890:

    Attachment: inconsistentSize.patch

In the case when the new replica is larger in size that what is stored in the blocksMap, then
all those replicas in the blocksMap are deleted. The new replica is stored in the blocksMap.
The size of the block in the blocksMap needs to be updated in this case.

>          Components: dfs
>    Affects Versions: 0.16.0
>            Reporter: lohit vijayarenu
>            Assignee: dhruba borthakur

>         Attachments: inconsistentSize.patch, inconsistentSize.patch
> We had a case where reading a file caused IOException.
> 08/02/25 17:23:02 INFO fs.DFSClient: Could not obtain block blk_-8333897631311887285
from any node:  java.io.IOException: No live nodes contain current block
> hadoop fsck said the block was healthy.
> [lohit]$ hadoop fsck part-04344 -files -blocks -locations | grep 8333897631311887285
> 21. -8333897631311887285 len=134217728 repl=3 [,,]
> Looking for logs about the block showed this message in namenode log
> 17:26:23,543 WARN org.apache.hadoop.fs.FSNamesystem: Inconsistent size for block blk_-8333897631311887285
reported from current size is 134217728 reported size is 134205440
> So, the namenode was expecting 134217728 while the actual block size was 134205440
> Dhruba took a look at the logs further and we found out this is what had happend
> 1. While the file was being created this block was replicated to three nodes of which
2 nodes had correct sized block, but the third node has partial/truncated block. (but the
metadata was same on all nodes)
> 2. Later after 3 days namenode was restarted, at which point the 3rd node reported warning
message about incorrect block size. (Namenode logged this)
> 3. After few days the first 2 nodes went down and the 3rd node replicated the partial/truncated
block to two new nodes. 
> 4. Now when we tried to read this block, we hit the IOException
> 5. On all the nodes, the metadata corresponded to the original valid block while the
block itself was missing around 12K of data.
> Two problems which could be fixed here
> 1. When namenode identifies replicas with different blocksize (point 2 above). It could
choose the biggest block and discard the small block. If the block is not the last block,
then its size has to be equal to the block size, anything less than that could be considered
bad block.
> 2. Datanode Block periodic verifier could also verify that the metadata has the correct
size as that of the actual block present. Any changes should be reported/recovered considering
what would be done in above step.
