Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-6482) Use block ID-based block layout on datanodes
Date Thu, 31 Jul 2014 20:41:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6482?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14081427#comment-14081427
] 

James Thomas commented on HDFS-6482:
------------------------------------

[~sureshms] No, during rollback the directory structure in the "previous" directory on the
DN is restored, and this is the old directory structure. I have run some tests on my computer
that show that rollback works. It is not really possible to write a rollback test that checks
this case because we cannot run an older version of the DN code in the test.

> Right now blocks are placed into directories that are split into many subdirectories
when capacity is reached. Instead we can use a block's ID to determine the path it should
go in. This eliminates the need for the LDir data structure that facilitates the splitting
of directories when they reach capacity as well as fields in ReplicaInfo that keep track of
a replica's location.
> An extension of the work in HDFS-3290.
