Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-5744) Revisit append
Date Mon, 18 May 2009 22:54:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5744?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12710524#action_12710524

Hairong Kuang commented on HADOOP-5744:
---------------------------------------

Note that the current implementation in 0.20 does not provide the second guarantee described
above. A byte saw by a reader become invisible when the replica it read from fails. Even when
the replica that a reader is reading from is alive, the recovery of an error caused by another
replica in the pipeline may remove a byte saw by a reader temporary from dfs but recover the
byte later.  A removed byte may never get recovered if the writer dies or the writer does
not have this byte any more.

> HADOOP-1700 and related issues have put a lot of efforts to provide the first implementation
of append. However, append is such a complex feature. It turns out that there are issues that
were initially seemed trivial but needs a careful design. This jira revisits append, aiming
for a design and implementation supporting a semantics that are acceptable to its users.
