Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-6597) New option for namenode upgrade
Date Tue, 24 Jun 2014 12:20:25 GMT
Danilo Vunjak created HDFS-6597:

             Summary: New option for namenode upgrade
                 Key: HDFS-6597
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6597
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: namenode
            Reporter: Danilo Vunjak
         Attachments: JIRA-HDFS-30.patch

Currently when namenode is started for upgrade (hadoop namenode -upgrade command), after finishing
upgrade of metadata, namenode starts working normally and wait for datanodes to upgrade itself
and connect to to NN. We need to have option for upgrading only NN metadata, so after upgrade
is finished on NN, process should terminate.

I have tested it by changing in file: hdfs.server.namenode.NameNode.java, method: public static
NameNode createNameNode(String argv[], Configuration conf):
 in switch added
 case UPGRADE:
          NameNode nameNode = new NameNode(conf);
          if (startOpt.getForceUpgrade()) {
        	  return null;
          return nameNode;
This did upgrade of metadata, closed process after finished, and later when all services were
started, upgrade of datanodes finished sucessfully and system run .

What I'm suggesting right now is to add new startup parameter "-force", so namenode can be
started like this "hadoop namenode -upgrade -force", so we can indicate that we want to terminate
process after upgrade metadata on NN is finished. Old functionality should be preserved, so
users can run "hadoop namenode -upgrade" on same way and with same behaviour as it was previous.
