Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-3335) check for edit log corruption at the end of the log
Date Tue, 01 May 2012 20:26:53 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3335?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13266040#comment-13266040
] 

Todd Lipcon commented on HDFS-3335:
-----------------------------------

A few thoughts:
- we need to do this in trunk before we can review/commit to branch-1
- I'm afraid this may break the HA use case, where the previous active may crash in the middle
of an fsync(). This could leave a partial edit at the end of the file. Let's complete HDFS-2766
before we enable this lest it break the HA case.

> Even after encountering an OP_INVALID, we should check the end of the edit log to make
sure that it contains no more edits.
> This will catch things like rare race conditions or log corruptions that would otherwise
remain undetected.  They will got from being silent data loss scenarios to being cases that
we can detect and fix.
> Using recovery mode, we can choose to ignore the end of the log if necessary.
