Subject [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-1989) Add support for simulated Data Nodes - helpful for testing and performance benchmarking of the Name Node without having a large cluster
Date Mon, 05 Nov 2007 23:56:50 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1989?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Sanjay Radia updated HADOOP-1989:
---------------------------------

    Attachment: SimulatedStoragePatchSubmit5.txt

The attached patch addresses Konstantine's feedback on the previous patch.
It also add a new class DataNodeCluster that allows one to run a DataNode cluster in a single
address space (the
name node can be in a separate address space). This class allows one to run multiple instances
of the simulated
data node in a single VM; this is useful for benchmarking with a real Name node and a large
number of 
simulated data nodes. The hadoop command has been modified to allow one to run this as:
      bin/hadoop datanodecluster

> Proposal is to add an implementation for a Simulated Data Node.
> This will 
>   - allow one to test certain parts of the system (especially the Name Node, protocols)
much more easily and efficiently.
>   - allow one to run performance benchmarks on the Name node without having a large cluster.
>   - Inject faults for testing (e.g. one can add random faults based probability parameters).
> The idea is that the Simulated Data Node will
>  - discard any data written to blocks (but remember the blocks and their sizes)
>  - generate fixed data on the fly when blocks are read (e.g. block is fixed set of bytes
or repeated sequence of strings).
> The Simulated Data Node can also be used for fault injection.
> The data node can be parameterized with probabilities that allow one to control:
>   - Delays on reads and writes, creates, etc
>   - IO Exceptions
>  - Loss of blocks 
>  - Failures
