Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-724) Pipeline close hangs if one of the datanode is not responsive.
Date Wed, 25 Nov 2009 18:30:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-724?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12782546#action_12782546

Hairong Kuang commented on HDFS-724:
------------------------------------

This patch ends up implementing the heartbeat packet as a special packet. This is to avoid
the complexity of both the data stream thread and the application thread creating packets
simultaneously. Otherwise, the dfs client has to handle the issues like synchronization and
out of sequence packets etc.

> In the new pipeline design, pipeline close is implemented by sending an additional empty
packet.  If one of the datanode does not response to this empty packet, the pipeline hangs.
 It seems that there is no timeout.
