Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-611) Heartbeats times from Datanodes increase when there are plenty of blocks to delete
Date Fri, 11 Sep 2009 08:17:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-611?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12754040#action_12754040

dhruba borthakur commented on HDFS-611:
---------------------------------------

> The datanode might remove blocks immediately from its in-memory lists that are used to
generate block reports but the background thread could remove the actual block files

that will work too. will submit a patch soon.

> I am seeing that when we delete a large directory that has plenty of blocks, the heartbeat
times from datanodes increase significantly from the normal value of 3 seconds to as large
as 50 seconds or so. The heartbeat thread in the Datanode deletes a bunch of blocks sequentially,
this causes the heartbeat times to increase.
