Project: Hadoop HDFS
Issue Type: Bug
Components: hdfs client
Affects Versions: 0.20.1
Reporter: Thanh Do
number of datanodes = 2
replication factor = 2
Type of failure: transient fault (a java i/o call throws an exception or return false)
Number of failures = 2
when/where failures happen = during the 2nd phase of the pipeline, each happens at each datanode when trying to perform I/O
This is similar to HDFS-1237.
In this case, node1 throws exception that makes client creates
a pipeline only with node2, then tries to redo the whole thing,
which throws another failure. So at this point, the client considers
all datanodes are bad, and never retries the whole thing again,
(i.e. it never asks the namenode again to ask for a new set of datanodes).
In HDFS-1237, the bug is due to permanent disk fault. In this case, it's about transient error.
