Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-5584) DFSClient continues to retry indefinitely
Date Thu, 26 Mar 2009 17:39:02 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5584?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12689566#action_12689566
] 

Hairong Kuang commented on HADOOP-5584:
---------------------------------------

Although the negative retry number is misleading, it seems to me retrying forever when allocating
a new block is a policy when a previous block in a file being created does not meet the minimum
replication factor. DFS does the same for close. Close retries forever if any of blocks in
the file does not meet the minimum replication factor. Retrying forever may not be a good
policy. A dfs client should retry a finite times and then declare a failure to the client.

> I encountered a bug when trying to upload data using the Hadoop DFS Client.  
> After receiving a NotReplicatedYetException, the DFSClient will normally retry its upload
up to some limited number of times.  In this case, I found that this retry loop continued
indefinitely, to the point that the number of tries remaining was negative:
