.fuse.filename files in Posix Client

I am troubleshooting a different issue, but in doing so, I was querying a directory via Drill that hits a mounted posix client mountpoint. 

 

I had 20 files in there

file70

file71

...

file88

file89

 

I started deleting files from there, to determine which file was causing me an issue. I narrowed it down to file88. 

 

So I removed file88 from the folder. 

 

When I did

 

select * from `dir/file*` the query returned

 

However, when I did

 

select * from `dir/*` 

the query produced an error as if file88 was still in the directory. 

 

This was odd.  I did a ls on the directory and file88 was not there. 

 

However when I did a ls -lsa of the directory there WAS a file named .fuse.file88

 

This file was my trouble maker. 

 

I am not sure why Drill is not ignoring . files (perhaps that's only a parquet thing)  but either way, why did the fuse client not remove the file? 

 

Thanks

 

John
