> Currently Hadoop RPC does not timeout when the RPC server is alive. What it currently
does is that a RPC client sends a ping to the server whenever a socket timeout happens. If
the server is still alive, it continues to wait instead of throwing a SocketTimeoutException.
This is to avoid a client to retry when a server is busy and thus making the server even busier.
This works great if the RPC server is NameNode.
> But Hadoop RPC is also used for some of client to DataNode communications, for example,
for getting a replica's length. When a client comes across a problematic DataNode, it gets
stuck and can not switch to a different DataNode. In this case, it would be better that the
client receives a timeout exception.
> I plan to add a new configuration ipc.client.max.pings that specifies the max number
of pings that a client could try. If a response can not be received after the specified max
number of pings, a SocketTimeoutException is thrown. If this configuration property is not
set, a client maintains the current semantics, waiting forever.
