Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2848) hdfs corruption appended to blocks is not detected by fs commands or fsck
Date Wed, 01 Feb 2012 18:52:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2848?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13198045#comment-13198045
] 

Ravi Prakash commented on HDFS-2848:
------------------------------------

Can someone please tell me if a datanode is supposed to verify the checksums of the chunks
in a block it is serving up before sending it onto the network? If so why is DataXceiver.java:215
setting verifyChecksum to false?

{noformat}
        blockSender = new BlockSender(block, blockOffset, length,
            true, false, datanode, clientTraceFmt);

> Appears that there is a regression in corrupt block detection by both fsck and fs cmds
like 'cat'. Testcases for
> pre-block and block-overwrite corruption of all replicas is correctly reporting errors
however post-block corruption is
> not, fsck on the filesystem reports it's Healthy and 'cat' returns without error. Looking
at the DN blocks themselves,
