Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-10843) Quota Feature Cached Size != Computed Size When Block Committed But Not Completed

Erik Krogen created HDFS-10843:

             Summary: Quota Feature Cached Size != Computed Size When Block Committed But
Not Completed
                 Key: HDFS-10843
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-10843
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: hdfs, namenode
    Affects Versions: 2.6.0
            Reporter: Erik Krogen
            Assignee: Erik Krogen

Currently when a block has been committed but has not yet been completed, the cached size
(used for the quota feature) of the directory containing that block differs from the computed
size. This results in log messages of the following form:

bq. ERROR namenode.NameNode (DirectoryWithQuotaFeature.java:checkStoragespace(141)) - BUG:
Inconsistent storagespace for directory /TestQuotaUpdate. Cached = 512 != Computed = 8192

When a block is initially started under construction, the used space is conservatively set
to a full block. When the block is committed, the cached size is updated to the final size
of the block. However, the calculation of the computed size uses the full block size until
the block is completed, so in the period where the block is committed but not completed they
disagree. To fix this we need to decide which is correct and fix the other to match. It seems
to me that the cached size is correct since once the block is committed its size will not

This can be reproduced using the following steps:
- Create a directory with a quota
- Start writing to a file within this directory
- Prevent all datanodes to which the file is written from communicating the corresponding
BlockReceivedAndDeletedRequestProto to the NN temporarily (i.e. simulate a transient network
- During this time, call DistributedFileSystem.getContentSummary() on the directory with the
