Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-442) slaves file should include an 'exclude' section, to prevent "bad" datanodes and tasktrackers from disrupting a cluster

dhruba borthakur commented on HADOOP-442:
-----------------------------------------

Regarding comment 5 above, it actually might make sense to have a separate thread to check
whether a decommission is completed or not. It can run on its own schedule. The ReplicationMonitor
thread periodically works every 3 seconds and this periodicity is "too" frequent to be checking
decommissioned nodes.

> I recently had a few nodes go bad, such that they were inaccessible to ssh, but were
still running their java processes.
> tasks that executed on them were failing, causing jobs to fail.
> I couldn't stop the java processes, because of the ssh issue, so I was helpless until
I could actually power down these nodes.
> restarting the cluster doesn't help, even when removing the bad nodes from the slaves
file - they just reconnect and are accepted.
> while we plan to avoid tasks from launching on the same nodes over and over, what I'd
like is to be able to prevent rogue processes from connecting to the masters.
> Ideally, the slaves file will contain an 'exclude' section, which will list nodes that
shouldn't be accessed, and should be ignored if they try to connect. That would also help
in configuring the slaves file for a large cluster - I'd list the full range of machines in
the cluster, then list the ones that are down in the 'exclude' section
