Subject [jira] Resolved: (HDFS-1223) DataNode fails stop due to a bad disk (or storage directory)
Date Wed, 23 Jun 2010 02:28:53 GMT

Konstantin Shvachko resolved HDFS-1223.

    Resolution: Duplicate

This is fixed as Todd mentions. BTW sometimes the behavior you describe here is desirable,
see HDFS-1158 and HDFS-1161.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1223
>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: data-node
>    Affects Versions: 0.20.1
>            Reporter: Thanh Do
> A datanode can store block files in multiple volumes.
> If a datanode sees a bad volume during start up (i.e, face an exception
> when accessing that volume), it simply fail stops, making all block files
> stored in other healthy volumes inaccessible. Consequently, these lost
> replicas will be generated later on in other datanodes. 
> If a datanode is able to mark the bad disk and continue working with
> healthy ones, this will increase availability and avoid unnecessary 
> regeneration. As an extreme example, consider one datanode which has
> 2 volumes V1 and V2, each contains about 10000 64MB block files.
> During startup, the datanode gets an exception when accessing V1, it then 
> fail stops, making 20000 block files generated later on.
> If the datanode masks V1 as bad and continues working with V2, the number
> of replicas needed to be regenerated is cut in to half.
