Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-5670) Hadoop configurations should be read from a distributed system
Date Thu, 16 Apr 2009 20:18:14 GMT

Yes, this is exactly what a simplistic solution would do. I'd rather not limit myself to two
files, though: why not get ready for federated grids in advance. Further, one has to take
some care with option semantics: for instance, override of some default options may turn undesirable
or even should be prohibited. There some nits here, to summarize.

I didn't actually consider clients. If ZK supports client connections (meaning outside-world
readers and may be even writers), not sure with this - just started reading docs/code last
week, - this should be fairly straightforward. The only thing one then needs at the client
to answer your concern would be a simple "AvailableGrids" config listing respective ZK URLs
to connect to.

> Rather than distributing the hadoop configuration files to every data node, compute node,
etc, Hadoop should be able to read configuration information (dynamically!) from LDAP, ZooKeeper,
whatever.
