Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-5192) Block reciever should not remove a finalized block when block replication fails
Date Fri, 06 Feb 2009 20:14:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5192?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12671292#action_12671292

Hairong Kuang commented on HADOOP-5192:

Good catch Raghu! It seems that BlockReceiver should not remove the block in case of the following
two exceptions thrown by FSDataset#writeToBlock
1.         throw new IOException("Block " + b + " is valid, and cannot be written to.");
2.        throw new IOException("Block " + b +  " has already been started (though not completed),
and thus cannot be created.");

My patch handles only 1.

> HADOOP-4702 makes block receivers to remove the received block in case of a block replication
failure. But the block should not be removed if the cause of the failure is that the block
to be received already exists. The key is that a block receiver should allow to remove only
partial blocks in case of block replication failures.
