Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-2874) HA: edit log should log to shared dirs before local dirs
Date Wed, 01 Feb 2012 23:03:53 GMT
HA: edit log should log to shared dirs before local dirs

                 Key: HDFS-2874
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2874
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: ha, name-node
    Affects Versions: HA branch (HDFS-1623)
            Reporter: Todd Lipcon
            Priority: Critical

Currently, the NN logs its edits to each of its edits directories in sequence. This can produce

- NN accumulates 100 edits (tx 1-100) in the buffer. Writes and syncs to local drive, then
- Failover occurs. SBN takes over at txid=1, since txid 1 never got writen.
- First NN restarts. It reads up to txid 100 from its local directories. It is now "ahead"
of the active NN with inconsistent state.
The solution is to write to the shared edits dir, and sync that, before writing to any local
