Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-13314) NameNode should optionally exit if it detects FsImage corruption
Date Tue, 20 Mar 2018 23:03:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-13314?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16407196#comment-16407196

Arpit Agarwal commented on HDFS-13314:

bq. How is the "safe" choice to knowingly write a corrupt image? One that renders the NN incapable
of starting up?
Once we get to this point, the metadata is already corrupt. Writing out a new FsImage doesn't
make it any worse because replaying the prior image and edits would lead to the same state.

bq. We need to immediately do a full stop anytime data structures are known to be corrupt.
That is my intention. Looks like you've gone over the patch. Is there anything you suggest
doing differently?
