Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-12182) BlockManager.metaSave does not distinguish between "under replicated" and "missing" blocks
Date Wed, 02 Aug 2017 10:34:02 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-12182?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16110689#comment-16110689

Wellington Chevreuil commented on HDFS-12182:

Thanks for the comments [~jojochuang]!

I will work on the patch issues.

Regarding the additional observations about the output, I can work on the mentioned improvements
on this same jira, or would you think a separate jira is needed?

>            Priority: Trivial

>             Fix For: 3.0.0-alpha3

> Currently, *BlockManager.metaSave* method (which is called by "-metasave" dfs CLI command)
reports both "under replicated" and "missing" blocks under same metric *Metasave: Blocks waiting
for reconstruction:* as shown on below code snippet:
> {noformat}
>    synchronized (neededReconstruction) {
>       out.println("Metasave: Blocks waiting for reconstruction: "
>           + neededReconstruction.size());
>       for (Block block : neededReconstruction) {
>         dumpBlockMeta(block, out);
>       }
>     }
> {noformat}
> *neededReconstruction* is an instance of *LowRedundancyBlocks*, which actually wraps
5 priority queues currently. 4 of these queues store different under replicated scenarios,
but the 5th one is dedicated for corrupt/missing blocks. 
> Thus, metasave report may suggest some corrupt blocks are just under replicated. This
can be misleading for admins and operators trying to track block missing/corruption issues,
and/or other issues related to *BlockManager* metrics.
> I would like to propose a patch with trivial changes that would report corrupt blocks
