Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-5257) Export namenode/datanode functionality through a pluggable RPC layer
Date Fri, 13 Mar 2009 22:52:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5257?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12681927#action_12681927
] 

dhruba borthakur commented on HADOOP-5257:
------------------------------------------

This looks good.

Since these are kinda-APIs to namenode/datanode, they should probably reside in src/hdfs/org/apache/hadoop/hdfs/server/protocol.
Also, there could be just one Interface (instead of two), both the namenode and datanode should
be able to use the same interface. The Interface would have two methods, start and stop. Please
let me know if this sounds ok to you.

> Adding support for pluggable components would allow exporting DFS functionallity using
arbitrary protocols, like Thirft or Protocol Buffers. I'm opening this issue on Dhruba's suggestion
in HADOOP-4707.
> Plug-in implementations would extend this base class:
> {code}abstract class Plugin {
>     public abstract datanodeStarted(DataNode datanode);
>     public abstract datanodeStopping();
>     public abstract namenodeStarted(NameNode namenode);
>     public abstract namenodeStopping();
> }{code}
> Name node instances would then start the plug-ins according to a configuration object,
and would also shut them down when the node goes down:
> {code}public class NameNode {
>     // [..]
>     private void initialize(Configuration conf)
>         // [...]
>         for (Plugin p: PluginManager.loadPlugins(conf))
>           p.namenodeStarted(this);
>     }
>     // [..]
>     public void stop() {
>         if (stopRequested)
>             return;
>         stopRequested = true;
>         for (Plugin p: plugins) 
>             p.namenodeStopping();
>         // [..]
>     }
>     // [..]
> }{code}
> Data nodes would do a similar thing in {{DataNode.startDatanode()}} and {{DataNode.shutdown}}
