Subject Re: rack awareness help

Hadoop will identify data nodes in your cluster by name and execute
your script with the data node as an argument. The expected output of
your script is the name of the rack on which it is located.

The script you referenced takes the node name as an argument ($1), and
crawls through a separate file looking up that node in the left
column, and printing the value in the second column if it finds it.

If you were to use this script, you would just create the topology
file that lists all your nodes by name/ip on the left and the rack
they are in on the right.
