Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-385) Design a pluggable interface to place replicas of blocks in HDFS
Date Tue, 15 Sep 2009 21:05:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-385?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12755694#action_12755694
] 

Hudson commented on HDFS-385:
-----------------------------

Integrated in Hdfs-Patch-h5.grid.sp2.yahoo.net #29 (See [http://hudson.zones.apache.org/hudson/job/Hdfs-Patch-h5.grid.sp2.yahoo.net/29/])
    . Add support for an API that allows a module external
to HDFS to specify how HDFS blocks should be placed. (dhruba)

> The current HDFS code typically places one replica on local rack, the second replica
on remote random rack and the third replica on a random node of that remote rack. This algorithm
is baked in the NameNode's code. It would be nice to make the block placement algorithm a
pluggable interface. This will allow experimentation of different placement algorithms based
on workloads, availability guarantees and failure models.
