Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-3061) Cached directory size in INodeDirectory can get permantently out of sync with computed size, causing quota issues

> It appears that there's a condition under which a HDFS directory with a space quota set
can get to a point where the cached size for the directory can permanently differ from the
computed value.  When this happens the following command:
> {code}
> hadoop fs -count -q /tmp/quota-test
> {code}
> results in the following output in the NameNode logs:
> {code}
> WARN org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.namenode.NameNode: Inconsistent diskspace for directory
quota-test. Cached: 6000 Computed: 6072
> {code}
> I've observed both transient and persistent instances of this happening.  In the transient
instances this warning goes away, but in the persistent instances every invocation of the
{{fs -count -q}} command yields the above warning.
> I've seen instances where the actual disk usage of a directory is 25% of the cached value
in INodeDirectory, which creates problems since the quota code uses this cached value to determine
whether block write requests are permitted.
> This isn't easy to reproduce - I am able to (inconsistently) get HDFS into this state
with a simple program which:
> #  Writes files into HDFS
> #  When a DSQuotaExceededException is encountered removes all files created in step 1
> #  Repeat step 1
> I'm going to try and come up with a more repeatable test case to reproduce this issue.
