Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4868) Clean up error message when trying to snapshot using ViewFileSystem
Date Sat, 07 Dec 2013 06:16:36 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4868?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13842091#comment-13842091
] 

Chris Nauroth commented on HDFS-4868:
-------------------------------------

Hi, [~schu].  I think we ought to support the snapshot methods through {{ViewFileSystem}},
so I filed HDFS-5641 for adding that support.  Considering that, do you think we can close
out HDFS-4868 as Won't Fix?

> Snapshots aren't supported for the ViewFileSystem. When users try to create a snapshot,
they'll run into a message like the following:
> {code}
> schu-mbp:presentation schu$ hadoop fs -createSnapshot /user/schu
> -createSnapshot: Fatal internal error
> java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: ViewFileSystem doesn't support createSnapshot
> 	at org.apache.hadoop.fs.FileSystem.createSnapshot(FileSystem.java:2285)
> 	at org.apache.hadoop.fs.shell.SnapshotCommands$CreateSnapshot.processArguments(SnapshotCommands.java:87)
> 	at org.apache.hadoop.fs.shell.Command.processRawArguments(Command.java:194)
> 	at org.apache.hadoop.fs.shell.Command.run(Command.java:155)
> 	at org.apache.hadoop.fs.FsShell.run(FsShell.java:255)
> 	at org.apache.hadoop.util.ToolRunner.run(ToolRunner.java:70)
> 	at org.apache.hadoop.util.ToolRunner.run(ToolRunner.java:84)
> 	at org.apache.hadoop.fs.FsShell.main(FsShell.java:305)
> {code}
> To make things more readable and avoid confusion, it would be helpful to clean up the
error message stacktrace and just state that ViewFileSystem doesn't support createSnapshot,
similar to what was done in HDFS-4846. The "fatal internal error" message is a bit scary and
it might be useful to remove that message to avoid confusion from operators.
