Subject [jira] Commented: (CHUKWA-369) proposed reliability mechanism
Date Wed, 05 Aug 2009 17:19:14 GMT


Jerome Boulon commented on CHUKWA-369:

My 2 cts, The LocalWriter is checking for disk space and will bail out if the disk space reach
a quota:

if (freeSpace < minFreeAvailable) {
      log.fatal("No space left on device, Bail out!");
So the localWriter should do the job for now. 
Regarding HDFS, there's work in progress to be able to use HDFS to write redo logs so when
this will be available, we will take advantage of that.
For people that want to still use the HDFS writer, they can change some HDFS params to reduce
the time before the hdfs client detect a problem. 
Facebook is also using 2 overlapping HDFS cluster to get HA from scribe point of view. The
missing part from our side is a secondary writer but could easily be implemented.

> We like to say that Chukwa is a system for reliable log collection. It isn't, quite,
since we don't handle collector crashes.  Here's a proposed reliability mechanism.
