Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-3979) Fix hsync and hflush semantics.
Date Thu, 27 Sep 2012 04:19:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3979?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13464410#comment-13464410

Lars Hofhansl commented on HDFS-3979:
-------------------------------------

I'm not sure either. I am trying not to change the existing behavior.

The enqueue used to happen in the beginning of receivePacket(...), so if that latter part
of the method fails the ack would already be enqueued.

> See discussion in HDFS-744. The actual sync/flush operation in BlockReceiver is not on
a synchronous path from the DFSClient, hence it is possible that a DN loses data that it has
already acknowledged as persisted to a client.
> Edit: Spelling.
