> Continuance of Hadoop-386. The patch to that issue makes it possible to redistribute
blocks (change replication up, wait for replication to succeed, then lower replication again).
However, this requires a lot more space, is not automatic, and doesn't respect a reasonable
I/O limit. I have actually had MapReduce jobs fail from block missing execptions after having
recently changed the replication level (from 3 to 4, with no underreplications to start with)
because the datanodes were too slow responding to requests while performing the necessary
replications.
> A good fix to this problem would be a low-priority thread on the NameNode that schedules
low-priority replications of blocks on over-full machines, followed by the removal of the
extra replications. It might be worth having a specific prototocol for asking for these low-priority
copies to happen in the datanodes, so that they continue to service (and be available to service)
normal block requests.
