Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-1526) Dfs client name for a map/reduce task should have some randomness
Date Fri, 03 Dec 2010 20:54:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1526?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12966668#action_12966668
] 

Allen Wittenauer commented on HDFS-1526:
----------------------------------------

-1 on random without some sort of check for uniqueness
+1 on thread id if it is guaranteed to be unique

... and this sounds like it should be a blocker for 0.22 and 0.21.1.

> Fsck shows one of the files in our dfs cluster is corrupt.
> # /bin/hadoop fsck aFile -files -blocks -locations

> On disk, these two blocks are of the same size and the same content. It turns out the
writer of the file is from a multiple threaded map task. Each thread may write to the same
file. One possible interaction of two threads might make this to happen:
> [T1: create aFile] [T2: delete aFile] [T2: create aFile][T1: addBlock 0 to aFile][T2:
addBlock1 to aFile]...
> Because T1 and T2 have the same client name, which is the map task id, the above interactions
could be done without any lease exception, thus eventually leading to a corrupt file. To solve
the problem, a mapreduce task's client name could be formed by its task id followed by a random
number.
