Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-6801) Archival Storage: Add a new data migration tool
Date Fri, 01 Aug 2014 02:30:38 GMT
Tsz Wo Nicholas Sze created HDFS-6801:

             Summary: Archival Storage: Add a new data migration tool 
                 Key: HDFS-6801
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6801
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Sub-task
            Reporter: Tsz Wo Nicholas Sze
            Assignee: Tsz Wo Nicholas Sze

The tool is similar to Balancer.  It periodic scans the blocks in HDFS and uses path and/or
other meta data (e.g. mtime) to determine if a block should be cooled down (i.e. hot =>
warm, or warm => cold) or warmed up (i.e. cold => warm, or warm => hot).  In contrast
to Balancer, the migration tool always move replicas to a different storage type.  Similar
to Balancer, the replicas are moved in a way that the number of racks the block does not decrease.
