Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-3835) Long-lived 2NN cannot perform a checkpoint if security is enabled and the NN restarts with outstanding delegation tokens
Date Wed, 22 Aug 2012 18:42:43 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3835?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13439752#comment-13439752

Aaron T. Myers commented on HDFS-3835:

Thanks a lot for the review, Eli. I did consider the approach you describe here, but concluded
that this fix would be more conservative and less likely to destabilize things.

The findbugs warning is unrelated and has already been fixed by another JIRA. I'm going to
go ahead and commit this momentarily.

> When the 2NN wants to perform a checkpoint, it figures out the highest transaction ID
of the fsimage files on the NN, and if the 2NN has a copy of that fsimage file (because it
created that merged fsimage file the last time it did a checkpoint) then the 2NN won't download
the fsimage file from the NN, and instead only gets the new edits files from the NN. In this
case, the 2NN also doesn't even bother reloading the fsimage file it has from disk, since
it has all of the namespace state in-memory. This all works just fine.
> When the 2NN _doesn't_ have a copy of the relevant fsimage file (for example, if the
NN had restarted since the last checkpoint) then the 2NN blows away its in-memory namespace
state, downloads the fsimage file from the NN, and loads the newly-downloaded fsimage file
from disk. The bug is that when the 2NN clears its in-memory state, it only resets the namespace,
but not the delegation token map.
> The fix is pretty simple - just make the delegation token map get cleared as well as
the namespace state when a running 2NN needs to load a new fsimage from disk.
