Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-2559) DFS should place one replica per rack
Date Mon, 04 Feb 2008 17:51:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2559?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12565432#action_12565432

Mark Butler commented on HADOOP-2559:
-------------------------------------

Is this related to https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2767 as this highlights one
possible cause of uneven distribution of data on a cluster?

>             Project: Hadoop Core
>          Issue Type: Improvement

> Currently, when writing out a block, dfs will place one copy to a local data node, one
copy to a rack local node
> and another one to a remote node. This leads to a number of undesired properties:
> 1. The block will be rack-local to two tacks instead of three, reducing the advantage
of rack locality based scheduling by 1/3.
> 2. The Blocks of a file (especiallya  large file) are unevenly distributed over the nodes:
One third will be on the local node, and two thirds on the nodes on the same rack. This may
make some nodes full much faster than others, 
> increasing the need of rebalancing. Furthermore, this also make some nodes become "hot
spots" if those big 
> files are popular and accessed by many applications.
