Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-4865) Trigger block scans for datanode
Date Thu, 05 Mar 2009 20:19:56 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4865?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12679335#action_12679335

Raghu Angadi commented on HADOOP-4865:

looks better now. I think you need to make sure these 'manual scan' blocks are scanned without
a throttle, otherwise they will be scanned pretty slowly. That is what I would want DN to
do if I am asking them scan asap.

nit: it is better rename 'manuallyScanList' to 'manualScanList'?

bq. > I think it is no good to run scan process in another thread, since it's possible
that the regular scan process will scan same block with the manually scan progress.

may be.. if you are fine with latencies of the order of minutes for start of scan of once
such a block is queued.
