Subject [jira] [Updated] (HDFS-6604) Disk space leak with shortcircuit
Date Fri, 27 Jun 2014 22:53:25 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6604?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Colin Patrick McCabe updated HDFS-6604:

    Attachment: HDFS-6604.001.patch

The CacheCleaner thread is supposed to time out replicas that haven't been used for a while
(5 minutes by default).  It looks like this thread has not been timing out the non-mmapped
entries as it should, due to a typo.  This patch should fix it.

We probably should also have the DN notify the client when a block that the client is reading
is unlinked.  It could do this via the existing shared memory segment code, in the same way
we handle uncaching now.

> When HDFS shortcircuit is enabled, the file descriptors of the deleted HDFS blocks are
kept open until the cache is full. This prevents the operating system to free the space on
