Subject [jira] [Updated] (HADOOP-7938) HA: the FailoverController should optionally fence the active during failover
Date Mon, 30 Jan 2012 00:27:10 GMT

Eli Collins updated HADOOP-7938:

    Attachment: hadoop-7938.txt

Thanks for the review Todd. Updated patch applies atop HADOOP-7983.

- Made failover require a fencer. Reasonable IMO since we can't safely failover w/o fencing,
and users can workaround with an "exit 1" shell fencer if they only want cooperative failover.
- transitionToStandby and active are nops if the service is already in that state, which I
think is the right behavior. Added a test to TestHAStateTransitions to cover this.
- force-fence no longer has to be the last argument. I had to rename it "forcefence" since
options can't have dashes. Note also that it can't be the very first argument because HAAdmin
considers those commands. Perhaps we should update HAAdmin to not prefix commands with a dash?
- Whitespace in NodeFencer.java is to make the if clause consistent with the following one,
if you don't mind I'll keep it
- FC uses failover recursively for failback, definitely better!
- Added NodeFencer#create

> The FailoverController in HADOOP-7924 needs to be able to fence off the current active
in case it fails to transition to standby (or the user requests it for sanity). This is needed
even for manual failover (the CLI should use the configured fencing mechanism). The FC needs
to access the HDFS-specific implementations HDFS-2179, could add a common fencing interface
(or just shell out but we may not always want to do that).
