Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-4540) An invalidated block should be removed from the blockMap
Date Thu, 30 Oct 2008 23:40:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4540?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12644165#action_12644165

Hairong Kuang commented on HADOOP-4540:

My proposal is to remove a replica from the blocks map when it is marked as "invalid" (i.e.,
when it is moved to the recentInvalidateSet) as a result of over-replication. Also when a
block report comes in, and a new replica is found but it is marked as invalid, this new replica
does not get added to the blocks map.

>          Components: dfs
>    Affects Versions: 0.17.0

>             Fix For: 0.18.2
> Currently when a namenode schedules to delete an over-replicated block, the replica to
be deleted does not get removed the block map immediately. Instead it gets removed when the
next block report to comes in. This causes three problems: 
> 1. getBlockLocations may return locations that do not contain the block;
> 2. Over-replication due to unsuccessful deletion can not be detected as described in
> 3. The number of blocks shown on dfs Web UI does not get updated on a source node when
a large number of blocks have been moved from the source node to a target node, for example,
when running a balancer.
