If the Alluxio journal is configured to HDFS UFS system, journal file gets formatted whenever we restart Alluxio.
This happens because
is called from AlluxioMasterExecutor everytime.
Thanks for reporting this. I agree it shouldn’t automatically format - we should check if the journal has already been formatted first. I’ve created a PR to add the check - could you try it out and see if it solves the issue for you? https://github.com/Alluxio/alluxio/pull/7839
hi , shall we cherry-pick your fix to 1.8 branch? (in case 1.8.2 is needed)
