Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1985) Abstract node to switch mapping into a topology service class used by namenode and jobtracker
Date Fri, 01 Feb 2008 07:09:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1985?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12564668#action_12564668
] 

Devaraj Das commented on HADOOP-1985:
-------------------------------------

I propose the following to avoid corner case HDFS issues and keeping the existing invariant
(that all operations like block rereplication/deletion happen knowing the rackid of the datanodes).
1) On namenode startup, the namenode keeps on accepting datanode registrations and lazily
resolving them. (as in the patch)
2) Block report is not processed if the datanode in question has not been resolved
3) When the resolution thread gets a chance to run, it resolves all what exists in the queue


Makes sense ?

> In order to implement switch locality in MapReduce, we need to have switch location in
both the namenode and job tracker.  Currently the namenode asks the data nodes for this info
and they run a local script to answer this question.  In our environment and others that I
know of there is no reason to push this to each node.  It is easier to maintain a centralized
script that maps node DNS names to switch strings.
> I propose that we build a new class that caches known DNS name to switch mappings and
invokes a loadable class or a configurable system call to resolve unknown DNS to switch mappings.
 We can then add this to the namenode to support the current block to switch mapping needs
and simplify the data nodes.  We can also add this same callout to the job tracker and then
implement rack locality logic there without needing to chane the filesystem API or the split
planning API.
> Not only is this the least intrusive path to building racklocal MR I can ID, it is also
future compatible to future infrastructures that may derive topology on the fly, etc, etc...
