This message gets printed if a previous attempt to merge the Transaction log
with the fsimage fails.

The SecondaryNameNode periodically tries to merge the fsimage and the
fsedits file and creates a new fsimage. If this process fails in the middle
(due to whatever reason), the Namenode is left with fsedits and fsedits.new.
Now, future attempts by the SecondarynameNode to merge fsimage and fsedits
prints out the message that you are seeing.

The log message is not harmful per se, but if you want to get rid of it, you
would have to restart your NameNode.

Subject: What is the meaning of this exception ?`

I see a whole lot of this in my namenode log. Is this benign or is there
something something more sinister going on ? Why would this be happening ?
