Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-4258) Rename of Being Written Files
Date Sat, 01 Dec 2012 23:23:58 GMT
Tsz Wo (Nicholas), SZE created HDFS-4258:

             Summary: Rename of Being Written Files
                 Key: HDFS-4258
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4258
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: hdfs-client, namenode
            Reporter: Tsz Wo (Nicholas), SZE

When a being written file or it's ancestor directories is renamed, the path in the file lease
is also renamed.  Then the writer of the file usually will fail since the file path in the
writer is not updated.

Moreover, I think there is a bug as follow:

# Client writes 0's to F_0="/foo/file" and writes 1's to F_1="/bar/file" at the same time.
# Rename /bar to /baz
# Rename /foo to /bar

Then, writing to F_0 will fail since /foo/file does not exist anymore but writing to F_2 may
succeed since /bar/file exits as a different file.  In such case, the content of /bar/file
could be partly 0's and partly 1's.
