Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-1222) NameNode fail stop in spite of multiple metadata directories
Date Tue, 22 Jun 2010 03:05:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1222?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12881034#action_12881034
] 

Konstantin Shvachko commented on HDFS-1222:
-------------------------------------------

I did not understand the failure scenario. Could you please elaborate.
When the name-node gets an exception while loading image from one of the directories, does
it fail or not?
Is it only the startup exceptions you are testing here?

>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: name-node
>    Affects Versions: 0.20.1
>            Reporter: Thanh Do
>
> Despite the ability to configure multiple name directories
> (to store fsimage) and edits directories, the NameNode will fail stop 
> in most of the time it faces exception when accessing to these directories.
>  
> NameNode fail stops if an exception happens when loading fsimage,
> reading fstime, loading edits log, writing fsimage.ckpt ..., although there 
> are still good replicas. NameNode could have tried to work with other replicas,
> and marked the faulty one.
