> This one is tough to describe, but essentially the following order of events is seen
to occur:
> # A client marks one replica of a block to be corrupt by telling the NN about it
> # Replication is then scheduled to make a new replica of this node
> # The replication completes, such that there are now 3 good replicas and 1 corrupt replica
> # The DN holding the corrupt replica sends a block report. Rather than telling this DN
to delete the node, the NN instead marks this as a new *good* replica of the block, and schedules
deletion on one of the good replicas.
> I don't know if this is a dataloss bug in the case of 1 corrupt replica with dfs.replication=2,
but it seems feasible. I will attach a debug log with some commentary marked by '============>',
plus a unit test patch which I can get to reproduce this behavior reliably. (it's not a proper
unit test, just some edits to an existing one to show it)
