>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 0.22.0, 0.24.0, 0.23.1, 1.0.0
>            Reporter: Uma Maheswara Rao G

> When tested the HA(internal) with continuous switch with some 5mins gap, found some *blocks
missed* and namenode went into safemode after next switch.
>    After the analysis, i found that this files already deleted by clients. But i don't
see any delete commands logs namenode log files. But namenode added that blocks to invalidateSets
and DNs deleted the blocks.
>    When restart of the namenode, it went into safemode and expecting some more blocks
to come out of safemode.
>    Here the reason could be that, file has been deleted in memory and added into invalidates
after this it is trying to sync the edits into editlog file. By that time NN asked DNs to
delete that blocks. Now namenode shuts down before persisting to editlogs.( log behind)
>    Due to this reason, we may not get the INFO logs about delete, and when we restart
the Namenode (in my scenario it is again switch), Namenode expects this deleted blocks also,
as delete request is not persisted into editlog before.
>    I reproduced this scenario with bedug points. *I feel, We should not add the blocks
to invalidates before persisting into Editlog*. 
>     Note: for switch, we used kill -9 (force kill)
>   I am currently in 0.20.2 version. Same verified in 0.23 as well in normal crash + restart
