Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-722) Accumulo using Accumulo as its own NameNode
Date Thu, 09 Aug 2012 20:26:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-722?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13432118#comment-13432118
] 

Eric Newton commented on ACCUMULO-722:
--------------------------------------

It kinda works... but it's very much a prototype.

I am able to run the accumulo continuous ingest test, and the verify map-reduce without a
name node running.

Lots to think about, like permissions, balancing, replication and even basic schema is open
for review/change.

> On large clusters, the NameNode can become a performance bottleneck.  The NameNode is
also a single-point of failure.  Recent improvements to HDFS to support High Availability
and Federation [See ACCUMULO-118] help address these issues, but at greater administrative
costs and specialized hardware.
> We have seen demonstrations of using HBase to host a NameNode.  There's Aaron Cordova's
example of a Distributed Name Node:
> [Design for a Distributed Name Node |http://www.slideshare.net/acordova00/design-for-a-distributed-name-node
]
> And giraffa:
> [Dynamic Namespace Partitioning with Giraffa File System |http://www.slideshare.net/Hadoop_Summit/dynamic-namespace-partitioning-with-giraffa-file-system]
> We could incrementally implement a self-hosted Accumulo, which would run as its own NameNode.
 This would be useful for large Accumulo installations.  Over the long term, we could incorporate
all NameNode functions to provide a scalable, distributed NameNode for other large Hadoop
installations.
> Hopefully the approach used could be trivially ported to HBase as well.
