Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-708) A stress-test tool for HDFS.
Date Thu, 29 Apr 2010 21:14:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-708?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12862412#action_12862412
] 

Konstantin Shvachko commented on HDFS-708:
------------------------------------------

With respect to 14. I found the following solution.
{code}
public DataGenerator(FileSystem fs, Path fn) throws IOException {
  if(!(fs instanceof DistributedFileSystem)) {
    this.fileId = -1L;
    return;
  }
  DFSDataInputStream in = null;
  try {
    in = (DFSDataInputStream) ((DistributedFileSystem)fs).open(fn);
    this.fileId = in.getCurrentBlock().getBlockId();
  } finally {
    if(in != null) in.close();
  }
}
{code}
Right after creating a file for write you can get the id of the first block of the file and
store it in {{DataGenerator.fileId}} - a new field.. This id is not changing while renames,
and can be reliably used as a file-specific mix-in for hash in data generation and verification.
The data value of a file at a specific offset is then calculated as {{hash(fileId, offset)}};

> It would be good to have a tool for automatic stress testing HDFS, which would provide
IO-intensive load on HDFS cluster.
> The idea is to start the tool, let it run overnight, and then be able to analyze possible
failures.
