> The block placement policy calls {{DatanodeDescriptor#getRemaining(StorageType}}}} to
check whether the block is going to fit. Since the method is adding up all remaining spaces,
namenode can allocate a new block on a full node. This causes pipeline construction failure
and {{abandonBlock}}. If the cluster is nearly full, the client might hit this multiple times
and the write can fail permanently.
