Subject [jira] [Commented] (AMBARI-11098) Fast Offline Stack Upgrades (better than rolling upgrades in many cases)
Date Tue, 26 Jan 2016 17:37:39 GMT


Rahul Pathak commented on AMBARI-11098:

First upgrade ambari to 2.1.0 and then to 2.2.0

Ambari 2.2.0 has express upgrade feature

>             Project: Ambari
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: ambari-server, stacks
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
>         Environment: HDP 2.2
>            Reporter: Hari Sekhon
>            Priority: Critical
> Feature Request to allow fast offline stack upgrades / downgrades instead of the only
option being slow rolling upgrades.
> Currently rolling upgrades take a very, very long time and there many hiccups in the
process (pages of jiras on rolling upgrade problems).
> For many people's clusters which are mainly doing batch analytics / data warehouse reports
etc it's simply not necessary to try for the 100% uptime and waste all day(s) babysitting
and rolling back every time there is any problem in the rolling upgrade, this in fact wastes
a huge amount of operator time and blocks users getting their bug fixes or new features they
> Operators should have the option of doing a fast and simple offline upgrade/downgrade:
> 1. Shut down entire cluster
> 2. Upgrade (or Downgrade) stack in parallel quickly across all nodes
> 3. Start up whole cluster again on different version
> This is the difference between taking 30 mins or taking 8 hours to do an upgrade/downgrade
and is preferable to only being allowed to do rolling upgrades. I've even done fast offline
upgrade on another vendor in prod because sometimes it's just the better thing to do to get
things finished quickly and allow users to utilize the fixes the upgrades provides immediately,
especially where they're blocked on needing that upgrade or if wanting to very quickly roll
back to a previous version after discovering some issue later (please also add arbitrary downgrades
> This would make testing much much faster and easier, and gives users access to new features
or bug fixes they may be blocked on more quickly, rather than having to be blocked behind
the long rolling upgrade process.
