>             Project: Hadoop Common
>          Issue Type: Bug
>            Reporter: Andrew Otto

>            Priority: Minor
>              Labels: ganglia, hadoop, metrics, multicast

> The GangliaContext class which is used to send Hadoop metrics to Ganglia uses a DatagramSocket
to send these metrics.  This works fine for Ganglia multicast setups that are all on the same
VLAN.  However, when working with multiple VLANs, a packet sent via DatagramSocket to a multicast
address will end up with a TTL of 1.  Multicast TTL indicates the number of network hops for
which a particular multicast packet is valid.  The packets sent by GangliaContext do not make
it to ganglia aggregrators on the same multicast group, but in different VLANs.
> To fix, we'd need a configuration property that specifies that multicast is to be used,
and another that allows setting of the multicast packet TTL.  With these set, we could then
use MulticastSocket setTimeToLive() instead of just plain ol' DatagramSocket.
