Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-5478) Provide a node health check script and run it periodically to check the node health status
Date Wed, 13 May 2009 10:41:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5478?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12708879#action_12708879

Hemanth Yamijala commented on HADOOP-5478:

bq. this fits in well with the ping/liveness stuff I've been doing

This coupled with your comment on ping() returning the latest results seems to indicate that
we have a thread that periodically executes and stores the results. In that sense, maybe we
could build this solution now, and when HADOOP-3628 is committed to trunk, we could integrate
the solution and results to be returned as part of ping(). Does that make sense ?

bq. It may be handy to have this stuff independent of the TT itself, so you can run a node-health
checker on anything, and even if the TT refuses to play, you could do some checking of the

The health check script itself is definitely external and could be anything. All the TT would
provide is the ability to run it periodically. So, I can imagine this being run standalone,
or integrated with another daemon that provides a similar interface.

bq. Also, could it be a bit of JavaScript instead of a shell script?

Umm. Can we execute this from the TT directly ? AFAIK, this is not possible, right ? As of
now, there is no plan to support anything other than a shell script.

bq. A scenario to worry about is what if something bad happens (e.g. a bit of NFS goes away)
that causes all health checks in a big cluster to fail simultaneously. Would this overload
the JT?

Since the plan is to send the information using the heartbeats itself, handling the load of
requests should not be a problem. I am not sure how costly blacklist processing itself is
on the JT, but hopefully not bad. We'll keep this in mind though.

> Hadoop must have some mechanism to find the health status of a node . It should run the
health check script periodically and if there is any errors, it should black list the node.
This will be really helpful when we run static mapred clusters. Else we may have to run some
scripts/daemons periodically to find the node status and take it offline manually.
