Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-1849) Respect failed.volumes.tolerated on startup
Date Wed, 20 Apr 2011 00:06:05 GMT
Respect failed.volumes.tolerated on startup

                 Key: HDFS-1849
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1849
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: data-node
            Reporter: Eli Collins
             Fix For: 0.23.0

The current failed.volumes.tolerated behavior is not user friendly, datanodes can be configured
to tolerate N volume failures and still offer service, but if the cluster is restarted all
the datanodes with failed volumes will not start unless the failed volumes have been removed
from the hdfs configuration files on the respective hosts.

The failed.volumes.tolerated configuration option should be respected on startup. The datanode
should only refuse to startup if more than failed.volumes.tolerated (HDFS-1161) have failed,
or if a configured critical volume (HDFS-1848) has failed (which is probably not an issue
in practice since dn startup probably fails eg if the root volume has gone readonly).
