Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-1606) Provide a stronger data guarantee in the write pipeline
Date Wed, 06 Apr 2011 18:13:06 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1606?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13016472#comment-13016472

Tsz Wo (Nicholas), SZE commented on HDFS-1606:
----------------------------------------------

- In [build #318|https://hudson.apache.org/hudson/job/PreCommit-HDFS-Build/318//testReport/org.apache.hadoop.hdfs/TestMultiThreadedHflush/testHflushWhileClosing/],
{noformat}
java.lang.NullPointerException
	at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.DFSOutputStream$DataStreamer.access$2500(DFSOutputStream.java:283)
	at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.DFSOutputStream.hflush(DFSOutputStream.java:1470)
	at org.apache.hadoop.fs.FSDataOutputStream.hflush(FSDataOutputStream.java:110)
	at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.TestMultiThreadedHflush$1.run(TestMultiThreadedHflush.java:156)
{noformat}
There are some existing synchronization problem in {{DFSOutputStream}}.  It is possible the
call {{hflush()}} after {{close()}} without getting any error.
I will simply check null in this patch.  Will think about the synchronization problem after
that.

- For the other failed tests, it is simply not enough datanodes so that addDatanode failed.

> In the current design, if there is a datanode/network failure in the write pipeline,
DFSClient will try to remove the failed datanode from the pipeline and then continue writing
with the remaining datanodes.  As a result, the number of datanodes in the pipeline is decreased.
 Unfortunately, it is possible that DFSClient may incorrectly remove a healthy datanode but
leave the failed datanode in the pipeline because failure detection may be inaccurate under
erroneous conditions.
> We propose to have a new mechanism for adding new datanodes to the pipeline in order
to provide a stronger data guarantee.
