      Under replicated blocks are not getting re-replicated

      In production Hadoop cluster of 5 Manangement + 5 Data Nodes, under replicated blocks are not re-replicated even after 2 days.

      Here is quick view of required configurations;

      Default replication factor: 3
      Average block replication: 3.0
      Corrupt blocks: 0
      Missing replicas: 0 (0.0 %)
      Number of data-nodes: 5
      Number of racks: 1

      After bringing one of the DataNodes down, the replication factor for the blocks allocated on the Data Node became 2. It is observed that, even after 2 days the replication factor remains as 2. Under replicated blocks are not getting re-replicated to another DataNodes in the cluster.

      If a Data Node goes down, HDFS will try to replicate the blocks from Dead DN to other nodes and the priority. Are there any configuration changes to speed up the re-replication process for the under replicated blocks?

      When tested for blocks with replication factor 1, the re-replication happened to 2 overnight in around 10 hours of time. But blocks with 2 replication factor are not being re-replicated to default replication factor 3.
