Subject Re: CheckPoint Node

Hi Harsh,

Thanks for pointing me to this link. I will take a close look at it.

So with 1.x and 0.23.x, what's the impact on the data if the namenode
server hard-drive die? Is there any critical data stored locally? Or I
simply need to build a new namenode, start it and restart all my
namenodes to find my data back?

I can deal with my application not beeing available, but loosing data
can be a bigger issue.
