Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-2938) Recursive delete of a large directory makes namenode unresponsive
Date Sun, 12 Feb 2012 02:50:59 GMT
Recursive delete of a large directory makes namenode unresponsive
-----------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HDFS-2938
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2938
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: name-node
    Affects Versions: 0.22.0, 0.24.0, 0.23.1
            Reporter: Suresh Srinivas
            Assignee: Suresh Srinivas


When deleting a large directory with millions of files, namenode holding FSNamesystem lock
will make it unresponsive for other request. In this scenario HDFS-173 added a mechanism to
delete blocks in smaller chunks holding the locks. With new read/write lock changes, the mechanism
from HDFS-173 is lost. Need to resurrect the mechanism back. Also a good unit test/update
to existing unit test is needed to catch future errors with this functionality.
