Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-1839) SecondaryNameNode should not discard "previous.checkpoint"
Date Tue, 19 Apr 2011 20:37:06 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1839?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13021776#comment-13021776

Todd Lipcon commented on HDFS-1839:

Do we need to fix this for 0.23 if we assume that HDFS-1073 will get merged into the release?
With 1073 I don't think this is necessary at all, since we have other ways of reverting faulty
checkpoints (see design doc for details)

> While creating a checkpoint SNN calls {{moveLastCheckpoint()}} twice. As a result directory
"previous.checkpoint" is getting removed. "previous.checkpoint" directory holds the checkpoint
that was created before the current one. It is useful for manual recovery, but nothing else.
