Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-1239) All datanodes are bad in 2nd phase
Date Tue, 22 Jun 2010 19:12:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1239?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12881305#action_12881305

Konstantin Shvachko commented on HDFS-1239:

> client-namenode protocol does not allow the client to say to the namenode 
> "hey, i tried to write to the datanodes you've given me, but it fails, could you give
me other datanodes please?"

This is incorrect. There is such logic. See {{DFSOutputStream.DataStreamer.run()}}. This is
where the logic is implemented. If you are on 0.20 then it should be in DataNode.java. The
client retries but the name-node does not have more data-nodes to assign the replicas to -
there is only 2 in the cluster.

>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: hdfs client
>    Affects Versions: 0.20.1
>            Reporter: Thanh Do
> - Setups:
> number of datanodes = 2
> replication factor = 2
> Type of failure: transient fault (a java i/o call throws an exception or return false)
> Number of failures = 2
> when/where failures happen = during the 2nd phase of the pipeline, each happens at each
datanode when trying to perform I/O 
> (e.g. dataoutputstream.flush())
> - Details:
> This is similar to HDFS-1237.
> In this case, node1 throws exception that makes client creates
> a pipeline only with node2, then tries to redo the whole thing,
> which throws another failure. So at this point, the client considers
> all datanodes are bad, and never retries the whole thing again, 
> (i.e. it never asks the namenode again to ask for a new set of datanodes).
> In HDFS-1237, the bug is due to permanent disk fault. In this case, it's about transient
