Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4078) Handle replication in snapshots
Date Mon, 22 Oct 2012 18:50:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4078?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13481620#comment-13481620

Suresh Srinivas commented on HDFS-4078:

bq. I would really have preferred to see some automated tests included with this change, as
an incorrect implementation of this could result in data loss from snapshots. At least, a
follow-up JIRA should be filed to add some automated tests for this functionality.
Aaron, please see the label "needs-test" all these jiras will need subsequent tests.

> Without snapshots, file replication is the same as block replication.
> With snapshot, the file replication R_o of the original file and the file replication
R_s of the snapshot file could possibly be different.  Since the blocks are shared between
the original file and the snapshot file, block replication is max(R_o, R_s).  If there are
more than one snapshots, block replication is the max file replication of the original file
and all snapshot files.
