Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-5546) race condition crashes "hadoop ls -R" when directories are moved/removed
Date Fri, 20 Jun 2014 18:21:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-5546?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14039131#comment-14039131
] 

Daryn Sharp commented on HDFS-5546:
-----------------------------------

I'm not sure I understand the question.  The first patch didn't stop.  It just displayed the
FNF for the command line path and kept going.  If it traps IOE instead, I think that's all
we need.

> This seems to be a rare race condition where we have a sequence of events like this:
> 1. org.apache.hadoop.shell.Ls calls DFS#getFileStatus on directory D.
> 2. someone deletes or moves directory D
> 3. org.apache.hadoop.shell.Ls calls PathData#getDirectoryContents(D), which calls DFS#listStatus(D).
This throws FileNotFoundException.
> 4. ls command terminates with FNF
