Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-3736) Failure in starting NN due to fsimage loading failure
Date Mon, 30 Jul 2012 20:13:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3736?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13425179#comment-13425179

Todd Lipcon commented on HDFS-3736:
-----------------------------------

Hi Suja. Can you also confirm that moving aside (or deleting) the fsimage file results in
a successful startup? Given we retain multiple images, I think it should start up OK after
this manual tweak.

That said, I agree we should be able to fall back to the earlier available image if the newest
one has a missing (or mismatched) md5sum.

> Came across a situation as follows in our test environment.
> NNs running in HA mode.
> While uploading checkpoint, MD5 file renaming from tmp to actual file failed due to some
reason which is unknown (non IO exception).
> At the same time at standby side, connection imeout occured.
> This lead to tmp MD5 file and original fsimage file (ckpt fsimage file was renamed successfully
to original fsimage file) in the name dir of active NN.
> On NN restart it checks for MD5 file and since it is not found, startup is failing.
