Subject [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-3184) HOD gracefully exclude "bad" nodes during ring formation
Date Fri, 06 Jun 2008 09:20:44 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3184?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Hemanth Yamijala updated HADOOP-3184:

    Release Note: Modified HOD to handle master (NameNode or JobTracker) failures on bad nodes
by trying to bring them up on another node in the ring. These retries are done a configured
number of times per master. The change is incompatible because a new required configuration
option is introduced: ringmaster.max-master-failures, which defines the maximum number of
times a master is allowed to fail.
    Hadoop Flags: [Incompatible change, Reviewed]  (was: [Reviewed])

>         Attachments: 3184.1.patch, 3184.2.patch
> 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.
