      Description

      Currently datanode notifies namenode newly added blocks and the blocks that are corrupt. There is no explicit message from the datanode to the namenode to indicate the deletion of blocks. Block reports from the datanode is the only way for the namenode to learn about the deletion of blocks at a datanode. With the addition of explicit request to indicate to block deletion, block report interval (which is currently 1 hour) can be increased to a longer duration. This reduces load on both namenode and datanodes.
