Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-1800) Extend image checksumming to function with multiple fsimage files
Date Fri, 01 Apr 2011 21:43:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1800?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13014842#comment-13014842

Aaron T. Myers commented on HDFS-1800:
--------------------------------------

Option #2 seems better to me, precisely to make use of {{md5sum -c}}. With option #1, we'll
all be writing the same bash loop to perform exactly what {{md5sum -c}} does.

> HDFS-903 added the MD5 checksum of the fsimage to the VERSION file in each image directory.
This allows it to verify that the FSImage didn't get corrupted or accidentally replaced on
disk.
> With HDFS-1073, there may be multiple fsimage_N files in a storage directory corresponding
to different checkpoints. So having a single MD5 in the VERSION file won't suffice. Instead
we need to store an MD5 per image file.
