Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-13738) DiskChecker should perform some disk IO
Date Mon, 07 May 2018 16:49:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-13738?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16466159#comment-16466159
] 

Arpit Agarwal commented on HADOOP-13738:
----------------------------------------

[~daryn], [~kihwal], we can avoid the fsync storm by using disk IO only for HDFS-triggered
disk checks. These are already throttled to at most once per 15 minutes.

The other issue you reported - disk full - can also be handled separately. I'll file a follow
up Jira and post a patch this week.

> 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.
