Uma Maheswara Rao G commented on HDFS-3122:
-------------------------------------------

Hi Nicholas,

Do you have any solution for this?

One work around could be that, if reported block is having less genstamp and NN is having
higher then , how about adding them into some suspected corrupt list. On next block report
if the block is having correct genstamp(newer genstamp), then we can just clean that block
from suspectedCorruptMap. If block is having still less genstamp and that entry already presents
in suspectedCorruptMap, then mark it as corrupt. But I am worrying to introduce one more datastructure
here.

Any suggestion on this would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Uma

> *Block Report* can *race* with *Block Recovery* with closeFile flag true.
>  Block report generated just before block recovery at DN side and due to N/W problems,
block report got delayed to NN. 
> After this, recovery success and generation stamp modifies to new one. 
> And primary DN invokes the commitBlockSynchronization and block got updated in NN side.
Also block got marked as complete, since the closeFile flag was true. Updated with new genstamp.
> Now blockReport started processing at NN side. This particular block from RBW (when it
generated the BR at DN), and file was completed at NN side.
> Finally block will be marked as corrupt because of genstamp mismatch.

>       if (!storedBlock.isComplete()) {
>         return null; // not corrupt
>       } else if (storedBlock.getGenerationStamp() != iblk.getGenerationStamp()) {
>         return new BlockToMarkCorrupt(storedBlock,
>             "reported " + reportedState + " replica with genstamp " +
>             iblk.getGenerationStamp() + " does not match COMPLETE block's " +
>             "genstamp in block map " + storedBlock.getGenerationStamp());
>       } else { // COMPLETE block, same genstamp
