-------------------------------------

             Summary: Underconstruction blocks can be considered missing
                 Key: HDFS-11755
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-11755
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 3.0.0-alpha2, 2.8.1
            Reporter: Nathan Roberts
            Assignee: Nathan Roberts


Following sequence of events can lead to a block underconstruction being considered missing.

- pipeline of 3 DNs, DN1->DN2->DN3
- DN3 has a failing disk so some updates take a long time
- Client writes entire block and is waiting for final ack
- DN1, DN2 and DN3 have all received the block 
- DN1 is waiting for ACK from DN2 who is waiting for ACK from DN3
- DN3 is having trouble finalizing the block due to the failing drive. It does eventually
succeed but it is VERY slow at doing so. 
- DN2 times out waiting for DN3 and tears down its pieces of the pipeline, so DN1 notices
and does the same. Neither DN1 nor DN2 finalized the block.
- DN3 finally sends an IBR to the NN indicating the block has been received.
- Drive containing the block on DN3 fails enough that the DN takes it offline and notifies
NN of failed volume
- NN removes DN3's replica from the triplets and then declares the block missing because there
are no other replicas

Seems like we shouldn't consider uncompleted blocks for replication.
