Subject [jira] Created: (HDFS-1648) Federation: Properly release in_use.lock created in BlockPoolStorage

Federation: Properly release in_use.lock created in BlockPoolStorage 

                 Key: HDFS-1648
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1648
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: data-node
    Affects Versions: Federation Branch
            Reporter: Tanping Wang
            Assignee: Tanping Wang
             Fix For: Federation Branch

StorageDirectory locks in_use.lock file, when analyzeStorage() method is called during

Since BlockPoolStorage uses this method, an in_use.lock file is created and locked under BlockPool
<StorageDirectory>/current/bpid/. This lock is not released when datanode shutsdown.
Restarting datanode without
formatting it results in datanode failure to acquire in_use.lock and hence failure to restart.

in_use.lock file that currently exists in <StorageDirectory> (at the datanode level)
is sufficient to prevent two
instances of datanodes running on the same node. There is no need for such a lock in block
pool directories.

Change is needed so that BlockPoolStorage can disable locking when it creates it's StorageDirectory.
