Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3083) Remove lease when file is renamed
Date Tue, 25 Mar 2008 06:15:29 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3083?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12581788#action_12581788

dhruba borthakur commented on HADOOP-3083:

The HDFS client talks to the namenode using the pathname as the identifier. For example, if
the client needs to allocate a new block, it sends a block-allocation request to the namenode.
The namenode looks up the inode using the pathname and associates a new block with the file.
So, a file is renamed, all new request for block allocations using the old pathname fails.
So, just fixing the lease is not sufficient to support writing to files across renames.

> When a file/directory is removed, the namenode should remove lease(s) for files that
were affected by the rename.
