Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-89) Datanode should verify block sizes vs metadata on startup
Date Mon, 22 Nov 2010 22:58:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-89?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12934648#action_12934648

Thanh Do commented on HDFS-89:

This is true for data file, if the length of a data block get truncated 
by ext3 fsck, NN will detect this because the NN knows the length
of the block. 
But we saw a case that once a meta file get truncated, 
and DN boots up, send a block report to NN, NN doesn't detect
that problem. 
This kind of corruption can only be detect by a reader, 
or a data block scanner.

> The datanode, upon starting up, should check and make sure that all block sizes as reported
via `stat` are the same as the block sizes as reported via the block's metadata.
