Todd Lipcon commented on HDFS-2749:

Good find! I think this is probably the cause of HDFS-1029 which I saw in 2010. Do you have
a unit test and/or patch for the problem?

> hadoop is into a recovery mode and save namespace to disk before the system starting
service. however, there are many situation will cause hadoop enter recovery mode like missing
VERSION file and ckpt file exists due to last failure of checkpoint.
> in recovery mode, namespace is loaded from previous fsimage, and the default numFiles
of namespace.rootDir is 1. the numFiles number is read from fsimage (readInt as version, readInt
as namespaceId, readLong as numFiles).
> the numFiles number is not updated in namespace when saving namespace.
> save namespace just after load fsimage which actually write numFiles which is default
value 1 to disk.
> the next time to load the saved fsimage from disk when rebooting or secondarynamenode
doing checkpoint, the system will crash (OOM) because this fsimage is incorrect.
