Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-779) Automatic move to safe-mode when cluster size drops
Date Thu, 19 Nov 2009 19:37:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-779?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12780226#action_12780226
] 

Owen O'Malley commented on HDFS-779:
------------------------------------

I'd also point out that with the default of 8 hours ticket life, that you would need both
of the KDCs to be out for 8*60*0.90=46 minutes before you hit this limit.

However, this is a more general problem than just KDC failure, which is very very remote.

> As part of looking at using Kerberos, we want to avoid the case where both the primary
(and optional secondary) KDC go offline causing a replication storm as the DataNodes' service
tickets time out and they lose the ability to connect to the NameNode. However, this is a
specific case of a more general problem of loosing too many nodes too quickly. I think we
should have an option to go into safe mode if the cluster size goes down more than N% in terms
of DataNodes.
