Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-5590) Block ID and generation stamp may be reused when persistBlocks is set to false
Date Wed, 04 Dec 2013 01:02:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-5590?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13838427#comment-13838427

Jing Zhao commented on HDFS-5590:
---------------------------------

Hi Konstantin, currently the property is not documented in hdfs-default.xml and is just defined
in DFSConfigKeys for internal usage, so there is no way to deprecate the property. If we decide
to always persist blocks, I think we should completely remove the property.

> In a cluster with non-HA setup and dfs.persist.blocks set to false, we may have data
loss in the following case:
> # client creates file1 and requests a block from NN and get blk_id1_gs1
> # client writes blk_id1_gs1 to DN
> # NN is restarted and because persistBlocks is false, blk_id1_gs1 may not be persisted
in disk
> # another client creates file2 and NN will allocate a new block using the same block
id blk_id1_gs1 since block ID and generation stamp are both increased sequentially.
> Now we may have two versions (file1 and file2) of the blk_id1_gs1 (same id, same gs)
in the system. It will case data loss.
