Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-744) Support hsync in HDFS
Date Thu, 07 Apr 2011 04:24:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-744?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13016678#comment-13016678

dhruba borthakur commented on HDFS-744:

@Nicholas: yeah, machines were hard-rebooted (not a clean shutdown).

@Hairong: yes, it makes sense to have a flag in the FileSystem.create() call to indicate if
a hflush() should actually sync block data from the datanode to the disk.

> HDFS-731 implements hsync by default as hflush. As descriibed in HADOOP-6313, the real
expected semantics should be "flushes out to all replicas and all replicas have done posix
fsync equivalent - ie the OS has flushed it to the disk device (but the disk may have it in
its cache)." This jira aims to implement the expected behaviour.
