Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-955) FSImage.saveFSImage can lose edits
Date Tue, 30 Mar 2010 19:10:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-955?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12851513#action_12851513

Suresh Srinivas commented on HDFS-955:

With the new solution, I see the following issues:
# The order in which namespace is saved is still important. It has to be image followed by
edits. If edits is emptied first, during recovery either edits is lost or system will not
start due to image time not matching with that of edits.
# On a failure after saving image and before edits is emptied, during recovery, the system
may not start due to mismatch between fsimage and edits time. However, there is no loss of
data in this case.

(implementing dfsadmin -saveNamespace) can corrupt the NN storage such that all current edits
are lost.
