Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3799) Design a pluggable interface to place replicas of blocks in HDFS
Date Sat, 02 May 2009 19:24:30 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3799?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12705320#action_12705320

Stefan Will commented on HADOOP-3799:

Here's something I'd love to have: A way to lock a complete replica of a set of files to one
or more nodes. Together with HADOOP-4801 this would allow Lucene indexes to be efficiently
served right out of hdfs, rather than having to create yet another copy on the local disk.

> The current HDFS code typically places one replica on local rack, the second replica
on remote random rack and the third replica on a random node of that remote rack. This algorithm
is baked in the NameNode's code. It would be nice to make the block placement algorithm a
pluggable interface. This will allow experimentation of different placement algorithms based
on workloads, availability guarantees and failure models.
