Subject [jira] Created: (CHUKWA-284) division of responsibility between agent and adaptor
Date Wed, 10 Jun 2009 07:21:07 GMT
division of responsibility between agent and adaptor

                 Key: CHUKWA-284
             Project: Hadoop Chukwa
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: data collection
    Affects Versions: 0.1.2, 0.2.0
            Reporter: Ari Rabkin
             Fix For: 0.2.0

The division of responsibility between adaptor and agent for managing offsets, datatypes,
and such has gotten quite squirrely. And the comments don't match the code.

For instance, the adaptors track last offset.  This means that checkpoint files include the
last byte enqueued to be SENT, rather than the last byte ACKNOWLEDGED. This violates both
the spec and the comments.

I propose that we make the agent responsible for recording offsets and possibly also datatypes.
 Are there cases where an Adaptor decides on its own what the Datatype is for the chunks it
outputs?  Or outputs chunks of different Types?
