-Clearing the .tmp directory on master startup
ramkrishna vasudevan 2013-03-25, 11:55
Currently the HMaster initilization deletes the files under .tmp using the
in HMaster().new MasterFileSystem().createInitialFileSystemLayout().
Actually i was thinking of using this info in the .tmp directory for the
tables that were partially created so that on master restart i can use this
info to recreate the table fully.
But i found that we are deleting this .tmp directory.
My question here is will it be ok to delete the .tmp directory after
the this.assignmentManager.joinCluster(), call in
Because by this time i would be knowing what are the partially created
Just wanted to confirm before i can make this change? My worry was, may be
snapshot is trying to utilize this info and doing something.
