Log Context

Log “cannot delete test data at”classname  is BlobStoreRepository.java We extracted the following from Elasticsearch source code for those seeking an in-depth context :

if (isReadOnly() == false) {
 try {
 final String testPrefix = testBlobPrefix(seed);
 blobStore().blobContainer(basePath().add(testPrefix)).delete();
 } catch (Exception exp) {
 throw new RepositoryVerificationException(metadata.name(); "cannot delete test data at " + basePath(); exp);
 }
 }
 } 
 // Tracks the latest known repository generation in a best-effort way to detect inconsistent listing of root level index-N blobs
