Stephen O'Donnell commented on HDFS-14861:

The failing test in hadoop.hdfs.server.blockmanagement.TestReplicationPolicy  
seems to pass locally.

The checkstyle warning is highlighting a method which is too long in Block 
Manager - the method was already close to the limit. I could move my new lines 
into another method and call it, but I don't think it really adds any value if 
you look at what else is happening in that method already. Its mostly reading 
config and setting instance variables.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-14861
>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: namenode
>    Affects Versions: 3.3.0
>            Reporter: Stephen O'Donnell
>            Assignee: Stephen O'Donnell
>            Priority: Major
>         Attachments: HDFS-14861.001.patch, HDFS-14861.002.patch
> When the namenode needs to schedule blocks for reconstruction, the blocks are 
> placed into the neededReconstruction object in the BlockManager. This is an 
> instance of LowRedundancyBlocks, which maintains a list of priority queues 
> where the blocks are held until they are scheduled for reconstruction / 
> replication.
> Every 3 seconds, by default, a number of blocks are retrieved from 
> LowRedundancyBlocks. The method 
> LowRedundancyBlocks.chooseLowRedundancyBlocks() is used to retrieve the next 
> set of blocks using a bookmarked iterator. Each call to this method moves the 
> iterator forward. The number of blocks retrieved is governed by the formula:
> number_of_live_nodes * dfs.namenode.replication.work.multiplier.per.iteration 
> (default 2)
> Then the namenode attempts to schedule those blocks on datanodes, but each 
> datanode has a limit of how many blocks can be queued against it (controlled 
> by dfs.namenode.replication.max-streams) so all of the retrieved blocks may 
> not be scheduled. There may be other block availability reasons the blocks 
> are not scheduled too.
> As the iterator in chooseLowRedundancyBlocks() always moves forward, the 
> blocks which were not scheduled are not retried until the end of the queue is 
> reached and the iterator is reset.
> If the replication queue is very large (eg several nodes are being 
> decommissioned) or if blocks are being continuously added to the replication 
> queue (eg nodes decommission using the proposal in HDFS-14854) it may take a 
> very long time for the iterator to be reset to the start.
> The result of this, could be a few blocks for a decommissioning or entering 
> maintenance mode node getting left behind and it taking many hours or even 
> days for them to be retried, and this could stop decommission completing.
> With this Jira, I would like to suggest we reset the iterator after a 
> configurable number of calls to chooseLowRedundancyBlocks() so any left 
> behind blocks are retried.
