Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-528) Add dfsadmin -waitDatanodes feature to block until DNs have reported
Date Wed, 05 Aug 2009 18:03:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-528?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12739648#action_12739648
] 

Todd Lipcon commented on HDFS-528:
----------------------------------

Dhruba: would you prefer a percentage or an integer number to wait for? Or perhaps either,
depending on the string format?

I'm also worried a little bit about orthogonality between this and the "% of blocks to wait
for reports from" feature. I assume we need an "AND" predicate of the two - but is there ever
a case where we need an "OR"?

> When starting up a fresh cluster programatically, users often want to wait until DFS
is "writable" before continuing in a script. "dfsadmin -safemode wait" doesn't quite work
for this on a completely fresh cluster, since when there are 0 blocks on the system, 100%
of them are accounted for before any DNs have reported.
> This JIRA is to add a command which waits until a certain number of DNs have reported
as alive to the NN.
