Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-2537) re-replicating under replicated blocks should be more dynamic

re-replicating under replicated blocks should be more dynamic

                 Key: HDFS-2537
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2537
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions:, 0.23.0
            Reporter: Nathan Roberts

When a node fails or is decommissioned, a large number of blocks become under-replicated.
Since re-replication work is distributed, the hope would be that all blocks could be restored
to their desired replication factor in very short order. This doesn't happen though because
the load the cluster is willing to devote to this activity is mostly static (controlled by
configuration variables). Since it's mostly static, the rate has to be set conservatively
to avoid overloading the cluster with replication work.

This problem is especially noticeable when you have lots of small blocks. It can take many
hours to re-replicate the blocks that were on a node while the cluster is mostly idle.
