Subject [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-6099) Allow configuring the IPC module to send pings
Date Tue, 23 Jun 2009 09:22:07 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6099?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

dhruba borthakur updated HADOOP-6099:
-------------------------------------

    Attachment: ipcPing.txt

If ipc.client.ping is set to false, then the ipc Client does not send periodic pings to IPC
server. The default is set to true to maintain compatibility with pre-existing semantics of
sending periodic pings.

> The IPC Client sets a socketTimeout for the time period specified by the pingInterval
and then sends a ping every pingInterval. This means that if a RPC server does not respond
to a RPC client, then the RPC client blocks forever. This is a problem for applications that
wants to switch quickly from one un-responsive HDFS cluster  to a good one.
