Subject Re: why multiple checkpoint nodes?
Date Thu, 18 Apr 2013 19:45:33 GMT
It would be important to point the document (which I believe is
http://hadoop.apache.org/docs/stable/hdfs_user_guide.html) and the version
of Hadoop you are interested in. At one time, the documentation was
misleading. The 1.x version didn't have checkpoint/backup nodes only the
secondary namenode. I don't believe it has changed but I might be wrong (or
the documentation still hasn't been fixed). The 2.x version will have
namenode HA which will be the final solution.

Bertrand
