- TSB 2023-666: Out of order HDFS snapshot deletion may delete renamed/moved files, which may result in data loss
- Cloudera has discovered a bug in the Apache Hadoop Distributed File
System (HDFS) snapshot implementation. Deleting an HDFS snapshot may
incorrectly remove files in the
.Trashdirectories or remove renamed files from the current file system state. This is an unexpected behavior because deleting an HDFS snapshot should only delete the files stored in the specified snapshot, but not data in the current state.
- In the particular HDFS installation in which the bug was discovered,
deleting one of the snapshots caused certain files to be moved to trash
and deletion of some of the files in a
.Trashdirectory. Although it is clear that the conditions of the bug are (1) out-of-order snapshot deletion and (2) files moved to trash or other directories, we were unable to replicate the bug in other HDFS installations after executing similar test operations with a variety of different sequences. We also did not observe any actual data loss in our tests. However, there is a remote possibility that this bug may lead to data loss.
