Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-11486) Client close() should not fail fast if the last block is being decommissioned
Date Thu, 02 Mar 2017 18:23:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-11486?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15892722#comment-15892722

Wei-Chiu Chuang commented on HDFS-11486:

There are several fixes to this problem.

* the client close() can retry close more times and wait until the block meets min replication
factor, or
* the NameNode may return success when the number of live replicas plus number of decommissioned
replicas is above min replication factor, and prioritize block replication.

> If a DFS client closes a file while the last block is being decommissioned, the close()
may fail if the decommission of the block does not complete in a few seconds.
> When a DataNode is being decommissioned, NameNode marks the DN's state as DECOMMISSION_INPROGRESS_INPROGRESS,
and blocks with replicas on these DataNodes become under-replicated immediately. A close()
call which attempts to complete the last open block will fail if the number of live replicas
is below minimal replicated factor, due to too many replicas residing on the DataNodes.
> The client internally will try to complete the last open block for up to 5 times by default,
which is roughly 12 seconds. After that, close() throws an exception like the following, which
is typically not handled properly.
> {noformat}
> java.io.IOException: Unable to close file because the last blockBP-33575088-
does not have enough number of replicas.

> Once the exception is thrown, the client usually does not attempt to close again, so
the file remains in open state, and the last block remains in under replicated state.
> Subsequently, administrator runs recoverLease tool to salvage the file, but the attempt
failed because the block remains in under replicated state. It is not clear why the block
is never replicated though.
> In summary, I do not think close() should fail because the last block is being decommissioned.
The block has sufficient number replicas, and it's just that some replicas are being decommissioned.
Decomm should be transparent to clients.
> This issue seems to be more prominent on a very large scale cluster, with min replication
factor set to 2.
