Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2016) 1073: remove/archive unneeded/old storage files
Date Wed, 01 Jun 2011 01:27:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2016?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13041927#comment-13041927
] 

Eli Collins commented on HDFS-2016:
-----------------------------------

Minor comments follow, otherwise looks great.

* IMO it would be more clear to call archiveOldStorage explicitly from the NN (saveFSImage..)
and 2NN (saveDigestAndRename..)  paths instead of having this run as a side-effect of renameCheckpoint
(which doesn't seem directly related).
* inspectStorageDirs could use a javadoc
* The javadoc for getImageTxIdToRetain needs to be finished
* Would rename retain.checkpoints.count something like num.checkpoints.retained

> This JIRA is for the infrastructure that periodically scans the storage directories for
files that are no longer necessary and "archives" them. The default archival is just to delete
them, but we may implement something fancier in the future (eg move to SAN or HDFS)
