Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8163) Improve ActiveStandbyElector to provide hooks for fencing old active
Date Thu, 22 Mar 2012 22:24:22 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8163?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13236116#comment-13236116

Todd Lipcon commented on HADOOP-8163:
-------------------------------------

bq. Am I missing something, or are ensureBaseZNode and baseNodeExists only called by the tests?
If so, we should probably relocate them, or at least mark them @VisibleForTesting if they
can't be moved for some reason.
These are used by my forthcoming patch for the ZK-based automatic failover controller. The
ZKFC has a "-formatZK" flag which calls through to ensureBaseZNode. Once this gets committed
I'll move forward uploading the patch there.

I fixed the other three of ATM's comments. I'll wait til tomorrow to commit this in case Bikas
has any additional feedback.

> When a new node becomes active in an HA setup, it may sometimes have to take fencing
actions against the node that was formerly active. This JIRA extends the ActiveStandbyElector
which adds an extra non-ephemeral node into the ZK directory, which acts as a second copy
of the active node's information. Then, if the active loses its ZK session, the next active
to be elected may easily locate the unfenced node to take the appropriate actions.
