Subject [jira] [Commented] (GIRAPH-273) Aggregators shouldn't use Zookeeper
Date Wed, 01 Aug 2012 01:12:34 GMT


Avery Ching commented on GIRAPH-273:

I believe not, since the workers always communicated to the master using ZooKeeper in the
past.  See BspServiceMaster#becomeMaster(), which describes the master protocol to see if
it is the master.  BspService#masterElectionPath contains the location to the actual master,
just need to factor out the common code to get the master address out of BspServiceMaster#becomeMaster()
and perhaps put it in BspService.  Note, you'll also have to add a few new methods for communication
to the master as none exist currently and start up a Netty server there as well.

Zookeeper is supposed to be used for coordination, and it also has a memory limit which prevents
users from having aggregators with large value objects. These are the reasons why we should
implement aggregators gathering and distribution in a different way.
