Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-7707) Edit log corruption due to delayed block removal again
Date Fri, 30 Jan 2015 19:32:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-7707?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14299106#comment-14299106
] 

Kihwal Lee commented on HDFS-7707:
----------------------------------

{{isFileDeletec()}} is always called with the fsn lock held, so no modification is done while
in the method and {{tmpParent}} is obtained by calling {{file.getParent()}}. So {{tmpParent}}
cannot be a newly created directory inode, unless something is automatically setting the file
inode's parent to the new directory inode.   If {{isFileDeletec()}} is called with a wrong
file inode, then it is possible to hit this condition.  That means both the parent dir and
the file were recreated and NN got confused.  Does this case also involve {{commitBlockSynchronization()}}?

> Edit log corruption is seen again, even with the fix of HDFS-6825. 
> Prior to HDFS-6825 fix, if dirX is deleted recursively, an OP_CLOSE can get into edit
log for the fileY under dirX, thus corrupting the edit log (restarting NN with the edit log
would fail). 
> What HDFS-6825 does to fix this issue is, to detect whether fileY is already deleted
by checking the ancestor dirs on it's path, if any of them doesn't exist, then fileY is already
deleted, and don't put OP_CLOSE to edit log for the file.
> For this new edit log corruption, what I found was, the client first deleted dirX recursively,
then create another dir with exactly the same name as dirX right away.  Because HDFS-6825
count on the namespace checking (whether dirX exists in its parent dir) to decide whether
a file has been deleted, the newly created dirX defeats this checking, thus OP_CLOSE for the
already deleted file gets into the edit log, due to delayed block removal.
> What we need to do is to have a more robust way to detect whether a file has been deleted.
