Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-5670) Hadoop configurations should be read from a distributed system
Date Tue, 06 Apr 2010 15:41:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5670?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12854023#action_12854023

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-5670:
------------------------------------------

Considering that the task tracker talks to the job tracker (where the scheduler runs), the
dynamic add/join is already there.

I want to re-iterate something here:  Think about the client, not just the server!  Chances
are good the clients are NOT owned by the same entity that runs the Hadoop grid.  Building
something that is strictly usable by the server is not going to be that much in terms of bang-for-the-buck,
considering any reasonable configuration management tool could do that. 

... and given the various private convos I've had about this, I'm still not convinced ZK is
a reasonable answer.  Sure you can probably do more with it, but that comes at a cost, especially
on the operations side where there is (highly likely) already a DS in place.  It just isn't
practical to require ZK for this.

> 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.
