Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-1172) Blocks in newly completed files are considered under-replicated too quickly
Date Fri, 18 Mar 2011 22:47:29 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1172?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13008665#comment-13008665

dhruba borthakur commented on HDFS-1172:
----------------------------------------

putting it in pendingReplication means that replication (when needed) will occur only after
5 minutes. This is a long time, isn't it? Maybe it is better to put it in neededReplication
but (somehow) ensure that it is not attempted to be replicated until after a small delay.

> I've seen this for a long time, and imagine it's a known issue, but couldn't find an
existing JIRA. It often happens that we see the NN schedule replication on the last block
of files very quickly after they're completed, before the other DNs in the pipeline have a
chance to report the new block. This results in a lot of extra replication work on the cluster,
as we replicate the block and then end up with multiple excess replicas which are very quickly
deleted.
