Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-1111) getCorruptFiles() should give some hint that the list is not complete
Date Mon, 30 Aug 2010 21:32:56 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1111?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12904347#action_12904347

Konstantin Shvachko commented on HDFS-1111:

The patch review comments.

# CorruptFileBlockInfo should be a static non-public class.
# I'd rather make it store the the file path and the block itself, rather than it's name.
The block name can be constructed in Fsck during printing. 
static class CorruptFileBlockInfo {
  String path;
  Block block;

  public String toString() {
    return block.getBlockName() + "\t" + path;
The method may be used in other tools, as Dhruba stated, so it is better to keep the original
# Methods listCorruptFileBlocks() should return {{Collection<CorruptFileBlockInfo>}}
rather than {{CorruptFileBlockInfo[]}}. Saves conversion to an array.
# NamenodeFsck unused imports: FileStatus, Path
# TestFileCorruption unused imports: FileStatus, ClientProtocol
# DFSck unused imports: DFSConfigKeys

>             Fix For: 0.22.0

> If the list of corruptfiles returned by the namenode doesn't say anything if the number
of corrupted files is larger than the call output limit (which means the list is not complete).
There should be a way to hint incompleteness to clients.
> A simple hack would be to add an extra entry to the array returned with the value null.
Clients could interpret this as a sign that there are other corrupt files in the system.
> We should also do some rephrasing of the fsck output to make it more confident when the
list is not complete and less confident when the list is known to be incomplete.
