Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-1222) NameNode fail stop in spite of multiple metadata directories
Date Thu, 17 Jun 2010 17:35:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1222?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12879853#action_12879853

Allen Wittenauer commented on HDFS-1222:
----------------------------------------

I have yet to see this condition under real world practice, including losing an NFS partition.
 You need to give a better description of how you were able to make the namenode fail.  Otherwise
this is doomed to be a WONTFIX or some other 'non reproducable' closure.

>             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.
> This bug was found by our Failure Testing Service framework:
