Daryn Sharp commented on HDFS-8486:
-----------------------------------

A subtle reordering of method invocation appears to be the source of the bug.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: datanode
>    Affects Versions: 0.23.1, 2.0.0-alpha

> A race condition between block pool initialization and the directory scanner may cause
a mass deletion of blocks in multiple storages.
> If block pool initialization finds a block on disk that is already in the replica map,
it deletes one of the blocks based on size, GS, etc.  Unfortunately it _always_ deletes one
of the blocks even if identical, thus the replica map _must_ be empty when the pool is initialized.
> The directory scanner starts at a random time within its periodic interval (default 6h).
 If the scanner starts very early it races to populate the replica map, causing the block
pool init to erroneously delete blocks.
