Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3184) HOD gracefully exclude "bad" nodes during ring formation
Date Thu, 05 Jun 2008 21:24:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3184?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12602797#action_12602797

Mahadev konar commented on HADOOP-3184:
---------------------------------------

1) shouldRetryMasterLaunch is defined but is not used anywhere
2) you might want to wrap around most the statements since they exceed 80 character columns.
3) is there something we can report back to the user on the command line that some machines
are faultty -- CRITICAL contact admin? it would be really helpful if we can do that .

> HOD clusters sometimes fail to allocate due to a single "bad" node. During ring formation,
the entire ring should not be dependent upon every single node being good. Instead, it should
either exclude any ring member that does not adequately join the ring in a specified amount
of time.
> This is a frequent HOD user issue (although not directly caused by HOD).
> Examples of bad nodes: Missing java, incorrect version of HOD or Hadoop, local name-cache
corrupt, slow network links, drives just beginning to fail, etc.
> Many of these conditions are known, and we can monitor for those separately, but this
enhancement would shield users from unknown failure conditions that we haven't yet anticipated.
This way, a user will get a cluster, instead of hanging indefinitely.
