Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-1186) 0.20: DNs should interrupt writers at start of recovery
Date Thu, 24 Jun 2010 23:55:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1186?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12882401#action_12882401

sam rash commented on HDFS-1186:
--------------------------------

hmm i wonder why only 1?  if the client thinks there are 3 DNs in the pipeline and asks to
recovery 3, i think it should fail with less than 3.  a client can request fewer if that works
(in which case we do have to handle the problem you lay out)

so in your sol'n, you are saying that the lease holder, the client, needs to be contacted
to verify the primary is the only one doing lease recovery? (or at least the latest)

> When block recovery starts (eg due to NN recovering lease) it needs to interrupt any
writers currently writing to those blocks. Otherwise, an old writer (who hasn't realized he
lost his lease) can continue to write+sync to the blocks, and thus recovery ends up truncating
data that has been sync()ed.
