Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3579) Support property groups in Hadoop configuration
Date Fri, 20 Jun 2008 17:21:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3579?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12606832#action_12606832

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-3579:

I see why you'd like a group/instance model for this particular part of the deployment (the
queues), but I'm thinking of a generic hierarchical view, where we'd have other sections for,
say, hostname->IPAddress mappings, or even the deployment parameters of a heartbeat MapReduce
job you'd feed through tasktrackers just to keep an eye on their health.

Equally importantly, I'm thinking of what to put in as a back end above and beyond an XML
format. Whether its JSON, LDAP or something else, a simple hierarchy with   no notion of type
and no duplicates between child section names and child properties wold be good. Its a prequisite
to doing cross references with notation such as ../queues/queue1/timeout and /hosts/test/server
and avoiding full XPath-like expressions such as:


While such expressions are wonderful in XSL, they are not what you want to reliably refer
to other bits in the tree.

> Hadoop configuration is currently a list of key and value pairs. There are some use-cases
to support configuring groups of related properties. There could also be multiple instances
of such groups. The issue is for adding support for such configuration.
