Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-3119) Overreplicated block is not deleted even after the replication factor is reduced after sync follwed by closing that file
Date Wed, 21 Mar 2012 09:37:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3119?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13234225#comment-13234225
] 

Uma Maheswara Rao G commented on HDFS-3119:
-------------------------------------------

The block is not finalized yet, changing replication for this block may not be correct.

Increasing/Decreasing the replication for the unfinalized block would not work as per my understanding.

Simple case is, updating the pipeline for further write after the sync will be difficult if
you change the replication for unfinalized blocks.

do you agree?

> 1NN,2 DN,replication factor 2,block report interval 3sec ,block size-256MB
> step1: write a file "filewrite.txt" of size 90bytes with sync(not closed) 
> step2: change the replication factor to 1  using the command: "./hdfs dfs -setrep 1 /filewrite.txt"
> step3: close the file
> * At the NN side the file "Decreasing replication from 2 to 1 for /filewrite.txt" , logs
has occured but the overreplicated blocks are not deleted even after the block report is sent
from DN
> * while listing the file in the console using "./hdfs dfs -ls " the replication factor
for that file is mentioned as 1
> * In fsck report for that files displays that the file is replicated to 2 datanodes
