    Assignee: Konstantin Shvachko

> Corrupt replicas are not tracked correctly through block report from DN
> -----------------------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: HDFS-900
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-900
>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 0.22.0
>            Reporter: Todd Lipcon
>            Assignee: Konstantin Shvachko
>            Priority: Blocker
>             Fix For: 0.22.0
>         Attachments: log-commented, reportCorruptBlock.patch, to-reproduce.patch
> 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)
