Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-1073) Simpler model for Namenode's fs Image and edit Logs
Date Tue, 05 Oct 2010 18:22:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1073?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12918102#action_12918102
] 

Sanjay Radia commented on HDFS-1073:
------------------------------------

> So are you suggesting that each edit will include a header with the transaction ID in
it? ..
Actually I was, but your suggestion works. 
However, having a txid in each record helps sanity checks and debugging. There have been cases
where we have got the transactions reversed in the past. 
The main cost is reading the extra 8 bytes and de-serializing the number.
(BTW zookeeper does put in the txid in each editlog record).

> The naming and handling of  NN's fsImage and edit logs can be significantly improved
resulting simpler and more robust code.
