Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-4116) Balancer should provide better resource management
Date Fri, 19 Sep 2008 22:54:44 GMT

Bo Shi commented on HADOOP-4116:
--------------------------------

Hi Hairong,  I'm interested in testing out your fix - is there, by any chance, a patch against
the 0.18.x series?

I've only been able to partially apply your patch to to the official 0.18.1 release and it
seems there was a major code reorg between 0.18 and 0.19 branches.

> The number of threads are currently limited on datanodes. Once these threads are occupied,
DataNode does not accept any more requests (DOS). Recently we saw a case where most of the
256 threads were waiting in {{DataXceiver.replaceBlock()}} trying to acquire  {{balancingSem}}.
 Since rebalancing  is (heavily) throttled, I would think this would be the common case. 
> These operations waiting  for active rebalancing threads to finish need not take up a
thread.
