>  HDFS-457 introduced a improvement which allows  datanode to continue if a volume for
replica storage fails. Previously a datanode resigned if any volume failed. 
> Description of HDFS-457
> {quote}
> Current implementation shuts DataNode down completely when one of the configured volumes
of the storage fails.
> This is rather wasteful behavior because it decreases utilization (good storage becomes
unavailable) and imposes extra load on the system (replication of the blocks from the good
volumes). These problems will become even more prominent when we move to mixed (heterogeneous)
clusters with many more volumes per Data Node.
> {quote}
> I suggest following additional tests for this improvement. 
> #1 Test successive  volume failures ( Minimum 4 volumes )
> #2 Test if each volume failure reports reduction in available DFS space and remaining
> #3 Test if failure of all volumes on a data nodes leads to the data node failure.
> #4 Test if correcting failed storage disk brings updates and increments available DFS
