Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8232) Provide a command line entry point to view/test topology options

Haohui Mai commented on HADOOP-8232:
------------------------------------

In falcon we have visualized the information on the web page using d3 (FALCON-175). Maybe
it will be useful to put the information into the NN Web UI using the same approach.

> Add a new command line entry point "topo" with commands for preflight checking of a clusters
topology setup. 
> The initial operations would be to list the implementation class of the mapper, and attempt
to load it, resolve a set of supplied hostnames, then dump the topology map after the resolution
process.
> Target audience: 
> # ops teams trying to get a new/changed script working before deploying it on a cluster.
> # someone trying to write their first script.
> Resolve and list the rack mappings of the given host
> {code}
> hadoop topo test [host1] [host2] ... 
> {code}
> This would load the hostnames from a given file, resolve all of them and list the results:
> {code}
> hadoop topo testfile filename
> {code}
>  This version is intended for the ops team who have a list of hostnames, IP addresses.

> * Rather than just list them, the ops team may want to mandate that there were no /default-rack
mappings found, as that is invariably a sign that the script isn't handling a hostname properly.
> * No attempt to be clever and do IP address resolution, FQDN to hostname mapping, etc.
