Subject [jira] [Resolved] (HADOOP-9091) Allow daemon startup when at least 1 (or configurable) disk is in an OK state.
Date Mon, 26 Nov 2012 11:24:58 GMT

Harsh J resolved HADOOP-9091.

    Resolution: Fixed

This feature is already available in all our current releases via the DN volume failure toleration
properties. Please see https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1592.

Resolving as not a problem. Please update to an inclusive release to have this addressed in
your environment.

>             Project: Hadoop Common
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: fs
>    Affects Versions: 0.20.2
>            Reporter: Jelle Smet
>              Labels: features, hadoop
> The given example is if datanode disk definitions but should be applicable to all configuration
where a list of disks are provided.
> I have defined multiple local disks defined for a datanode:
> <property>
> <name>dfs.data.dir</name>
> <value>/data/01/dfs/dn,/data/02/dfs/dn,/data/03/dfs/dn,/data/04/dfs/dn,/data/05/dfs/dn,/data/06/dfs/dn</value>
> <final>true</final>
> </property>
> When one of those disks breaks and is unmounted then the mountpoint (such as /data/03
in this example) becomes a regular directory which doesn't have the valid permissions and
possible directory structure Hadoop is expecting.
> When this situation happens, the datanode fails to restart because of this while actually
we have enough disks in an OK state to proceed.  The only way around this is to alter the
configuration and omit that specific disk configuration.
> To my opinion, It would be more practical to let Hadoop daemons start when at least 1
disks/partition in the provided list is in a usable state.  This prevents having to roll out
custom configurations for systems which have temporarily a disk (and therefor directory layout)
missing.  This might also be configurable that at least X partitions out of he available ones
are in OK state.
