Subject Re: why multiple checkpoint nodes?
Date Thu, 18 Apr 2013 20:07:16 GMT
Hello Thanh,

       Just to keep you updated, checkpoint node might get depricated. So,
it's always better to use secondary namenode. More on this could be found
here :
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2397
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4114

Warm Regards,
Tariq
