Subject [jira] Created: (HDFS-1630) Checksum fsedits
Date Wed, 16 Feb 2011 19:13:29 GMT
Checksum fsedits
----------------

                 Key: HDFS-1630
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1630
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: name-node
            Reporter: Hairong Kuang
            Assignee: Hairong Kuang


HDFS-903 calculates a MD5 checksum to a saved image, so that we could verify the integrity
of the image at the loading time.

The other half of the story is how to verify fsedits. Similarly we could use the checksum
approach. But since a fsedit file is growing constantly, a checksum per file does not work.
I am thinking to add a checksum per transaction. Is it doable or too expensive?
