Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-1200) The namenode could remember the last good location of a missing block
Date Fri, 11 Jun 2010 18:22:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1200?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12877902#action_12877902

Tsz Wo (Nicholas), SZE commented on HDFS-1200:

It is a good idea if we can implement it with very little memory usage.

> There are times when datanodes die and all replicas of a block are lost. An fsck on the
HDFS reports these as "MISSING" blocks in the filesystem. The administrator has to go mine
through lots of namenode logs to find out which datanode(s) had a replica of that block. Then
the administrator can try to reboot that particular datanode to retrieve the missing block.
> This case can me made easier if the NN remembered the last known good replica location
of a block. An fsck command can report it and the it will help the administrator to determine
if that particular dead datanode can be brought back to life.
