Subject [jira] [Updated] (HDFS-744) Support hsync in HDFS
Date Sat, 12 May 2012 05:09:50 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-744?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Lars Hofhansl updated HDFS-744:
-------------------------------

    Attachment: HDFS-744-trunk-v3.patch

Most tests fail due to an NPE in flush.
currentPacket can be null in DFSOutputStream.{hflush|hsync} even when bytesCurBlock > lastFlushOffset,
which I found a bit surprising.
I think in that case it is OK not to send a sync packet (if FORCE is enabled, because there
is nothing outstanding to sync).

Also fixed TestFilterFileSystem.
Not sure what's wrong with testTrash.

Also I could use guidance for:
* what types of tests should I add
* If I wanted to add a feature where optionally only the first DN in the replication chain
does the fsync, how should a client convey that to the FS.create method (it does not make
sense that add another CreateFlag).

> HDFS-731 implements hsync by default as hflush. As descriibed in HADOOP-6313, the real
expected semantics should be "flushes out to all replicas and all replicas have done posix
fsync equivalent - ie the OS has flushed it to the disk device (but the disk may have it in
its cache)." This jira aims to implement the expected behaviour.
