Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-1371) One bad node can incorrectly flag many files as corrupt
Date Wed, 11 May 2011 17:11:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1371?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13031853#comment-13031853

Tanping Wang commented on HDFS-1371:

In the case of all replicas are corrupted, there is nothing cluster can do to recover. Reporting
this to the name node or not would not make a difference. We can argue that if a operator
knows about the block corruption, he can choose to physically copy the file from somewhere
else. However, in real life, based on Koji's experience, in the past couple years, this has
never been a case on Yahoo's clusters that all block replicas are corrupted. Beyond this point,
we do not want to too rely on a client to report block corruption and want to restrict the
solution to just deal with a handicapped client.

> On our cluster, 12 files were reported as corrupt by fsck even though the replicas on
the datanodes were healthy.
> Turns out that all the replicas (12 files x 3 replicas per file) were reported corrupt
from one node.
> Surprisingly, these files were still readable/accessible from dfsclient (-get/-cat) without
any problems.
