Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-2420) improve handling of datanode timeouts
Date Sat, 08 Oct 2011 13:50:29 GMT
improve handling of datanode timeouts

                 Key: HDFS-2420
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2420
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Ron Bodkin

If a datanode ever times out on a heart beat, it gets marked dead permanently. I am finding
that on AWS this is a periodic occurrence, i.e., datanodes time out although the datanode
process is still alive. The current solution to this is to kill and restart each such process

It would be good if there were more retry logic (e.g., blacklisting the nodes but try heartbeats
for a longer period before determining they are apparently dead). It would also be good if
refreshNodes would check and attempt to recover timed out data nodes.
