Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-4096) Support for options within the inter-datanode protocol
Date Sat, 06 Sep 2008 00:32:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4096?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12628803#action_12628803

Tsz Wo (Nicholas), SZE commented on HADOOP-4096:

Do you mean "Datanode transfer protocol", i.e. the protocol described in DataNode.java line
916 - 995?  Inter-datanode protocol is another protocol defined in org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.protocol.InterDatanodeProtocol.

>             Project: Hadoop Core

> This proposal is to extend the streaming inter-datanode protocol to support "options",
in the spirit of IP or TCP options.  This should make this protocol more extensible, allowing
the client to include metadata along with commands.  This would support efforts to include
end-to-end and causal tracing into Hadoop, and hopefully other efforts as well.
> Options should have a type, and be of variable length.  It should be possible to include
multiple options along with each datanode command.  The option should apply to both the command
and any data that is part of the command.  If the datanode does not understand a given option,
it should ignore it.  Options should be sent end-to-end through intermediate datanodes, if
necessary.  For example, if an OP_WRITE_BLOCK command is pipelined through several machines,
the options should be sent along the pipeline.  Nodes along the pipeline may modify the options.
> BTW, If HADOOP-4005 (concrete datanode protocol) is implemented, then it should solve
this problem by simply letting the user add state to the concrete protocol class.
