Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-4993) fsck can fail if a file is renamed or deleted
Date Mon, 15 Jul 2013 15:34:49 GMT
Kihwal Lee created HDFS-4993:

             Summary: fsck can fail if a file is renamed or deleted
                 Key: HDFS-4993
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4993
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 0.23.9, 2.1.0-beta
            Reporter: Kihwal Lee

In NamenodeFsck#check(), the getListing() and getBlockLocations() are not synchronized, so
the file deletions or renames at the right moment can cause FileNotFoundException and failure
of fsck.

Instead of failing, fsck should continue. Optionally it can record file system modifications
it encountered, but since most modifications during fsck are not detected, there might be
little value in recording these specifically.
