Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4097) provide CLI support for create/delete/list snapshots
Date Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:37:14 GMT

Suresh Srinivas commented on HDFS-4097:
---------------------------------------

bq. Generally users want snapshots after they make a mistake and want to rollback – not
before they make a mistake. If they knew they were about to make a mistake they would probably
just decide not to do so.

Really? There are times when I do not know if I am (or the code) is going to make a mistake
or not. So as insurance I would take snapshots, just in case I need to undo the changes. While
in the use case you have brought up a scheduled snapshot be sufficient, it may not be sufficient
for all the cases. I believe we need on demand snapshots as well.
