Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-1108) Log newly allocated blocks
Date Fri, 20 Jul 2012 18:57:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1108?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13419442#comment-13419442

Sanjay Radia commented on HDFS-1108:
------------------------------------

This is useful for restarting a failed NN  - with manual or automatic restart. 
Hence yes, it is useful for HA in Hadoop 1.

> The current HDFS design says that newly allocated blocks for a file are not persisted
in the NN transaction log when the block is allocated. Instead, a hflush() or a close() on
the file persists the blocks into the transaction log. It would be nice if we can immediately
persist newly allocated blocks (as soon as they are allocated) for specific files.
