Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-13738) DiskChecker should perform some disk IO
Date Mon, 07 May 2018 16:31:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-13738?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16466106#comment-16466106

Daryn Sharp commented on HADOOP-13738:

This jira was not thought out.  It's causing problems on the clusters where it's deployed.
# We had a cluster lose 10% of nodes due to this patch.  A few nodes filled up, they went
dead, and created a domino effect that caused nodes to go dead until intervention.
# Jobs may cause severe performance degradation from sync storms during a sort phase because
local dir allocator calls checkDisk.

The biggest risk is a runaway job may fill disks and cause a cluster to implode.

[~arpitagarwal], do you want me to file another jira for immediate revert?  Or do you want
to reopen this one?

> DiskChecker can fail to detect total disk/controller failures indefinitely. We have seen
this in real clusters. DiskChecker performs simple permissions-based checks on directories
which do not guarantee that any disk IO will be attempted.
> A simple improvement is to write some data and flush it to the disk.
