Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-951) DFSClient should handle all nodes in a pipeline failed.
Date Sat, 06 Feb 2010 06:28:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-951?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12830480#action_12830480

Yajun Dong commented on HDFS-951:

> Also the file will leave in incomplete/being create state if that DfsClient instance
does not get a chance to close.
> But it will be not nice at all for users with respect their user experience. 

I come across this problem, DFSClient should complete those creating files when IOExceptions

But Normally we could not complete these files successfully before all blocks of creating
files are reported to NameNode, In short: the last block is in indeterminate state at this

in this case, the only one option I think is delete the last failing block and then complete/close
the file.
