Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4167) Add support for restoring/rolling back to a snapshot
Date Wed, 28 May 2014 05:59:02 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4167?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14010822#comment-14010822

Guo Ruijing commented on HDFS-4167:

I agree that it's better to keep it as a standalone HDFS metadata operation. It is easy to
restore any snapshot if block is copied out for append as HDFS-6087 proposal.

what's change in append?

1. file f1 includes (Block1, Block2, Block3)

2. append to f1

a) client request block3 information from namenode
b) client request to datanode to copy block3 as block4
c) append to block4
d) commit block4 to namenode

what happend in snapshot?

snap1: f1 include (block1, block2, block3)
snap2: f2 include (block1, block2, block4)

how to restore snapshot? just restore snap1 as current file since no partial blocks are shared
by different snap.
