Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-6688) FileSystem.delete(...) implementations should not throw FileNotFoundException
Date Wed, 07 Apr 2010 07:59:33 GMT
FileSystem.delete(...) implementations should not throw FileNotFoundException

                 Key: HADOOP-6688
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6688
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: fs, fs/s3
    Affects Versions: 0.20.2
         Environment: Amazon EC2/S3
            Reporter: Danny Leshem
            Priority: Blocker
             Fix For: 0.20.3, 0.21.0, 0.22.0

S3FileSystem.delete(Path path, boolean recursive) may fail and throw a FileNotFoundException
if a directory is being deleted while at the same time some of its files are deleted in the

This is definitely not the expected behavior of a delete method. If one of the to-be-deleted
files is found missing, the method should not fail and simply continue. This is true for the
general contract of FileSystem.delete, and also for its various implementations: RawLocalFileSystem
(and specifically FileUtil.fullyDelete) exhibits the same problem.

The fix is to silently catch and ignore FileNotFoundExceptions in delete loops. This can very
easily be unit-tested, at least for RawLocalFileSystem.

The reason this issue bothers me is that the cleanup part of a long (Mahout) MR job inconsistently
fails for me, and I think this is the root problem. The log shows:
java.io.FileNotFoundException: s3://S3-BUCKET/tmp/0008E25BF7554CA9/2521362836721872/DistributedMatrix.times.outputVector/_temporary/_attempt_201004061215_0092_r_000002_0/part-00002:
