Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9160) Adopt JMX for management protocols
Date Thu, 10 Jan 2013 00:52:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9160?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13549252#comment-13549252

Luke Lu commented on HADOOP-9160:
---------------------------------

bq. That said, my point here is that it wouldn't be too difficult to get simple clients done
in a couple other languages

Unfortunately, protobuf impls for perl are not being maintained and it *would* be difficult
to write clients for perl, which is the favorite language for many sysadmins.

> Currently we use Hadoop RPC (and some HTTP, notably fsck) for admin protocols. We should
consider adopt JMX for future admin protocols, as it's the industry standard for java server
management with wide client support.
> Having an alternative/redundant RPC mechanism is very desirable for admin protocols.
I've seen in the past in multiple cases, where NN and/or JT RPC were locked up solid due to
various bugs and/or RPC thread pool exhaustion, while HTTP and/or JMX worked just fine.
> Other desirable benefits include admin protocol backward compatibility and introspectability,
which is convenient for a centralized management system to manage multiple Hadoop clusters
of different versions. Another notable benefit is that it's much easier to implement new admin
commands in JMX (especially with MXBean) than Hadoop RPC, especially in trunk (as well as
0.23+ and 2.x).
> Since Hadoop RPC doesn't guarantee backward compatibility (probably not ever for branch-1),
there are few external tools depending on it. We can keep the old protocols for as long as
needed. New commands should be in JMX. The transition can be gradual and backward-compatible.
