Subject [jira] Created: (HDFS-1029) Image corrupt with number of files = 1
Date Mon, 08 Mar 2010 19:01:27 GMT
Image corrupt with number of files = 1

                 Key: HDFS-1029
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1029
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: name-node
    Affects Versions: 0.20.1
            Reporter: Todd Lipcon

Last week I recovered a corrupt namenode image that was completely sane except that the "number
of files" in the header was set to 1, rather than the correct number (many million). The NN
in question had been running for some time, so I believe the 2NN uploaded this broken image
as a checkpoint. After this point, of course, no further checkpoints occurred, and the NN
failed to load its image upon restart.

Not sure how this happens - my only thought is that we may need to add synchronization on
the nsCount field in INodeDirectoryWithQuota, but that's a long shot.
