Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-4278) TestDatanodeDeath failed occasionally
Date Thu, 16 Oct 2008 07:20:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4278?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12640088#action_12640088

dhruba borthakur commented on HADOOP-4278:

Thanks Sameer for your suggestion. 

I followed Raghu's suggestion of investigating why the client never recovered. There were
three datanodes A, B and C in the pipeline. The test killed B. The client thought that C was

The client designated A as the primary datanode. It made a recoverBlock RPC to the primary
datanode. The primary datanode, in turn , should have made a recoverBlock RPC to itslf and
B. However, this did not occur. Looking at the logs, it appears that the primary datanode
tried to make a RPC only to B. This failed (again and again) and the primary datanode returned
error to the client. The client than aborted.
