Subject [jira] Updated: (HDFS-1359) HDFS federation: Add BlockPoolID to block

Suresh Srinivas updated HDFS-1359:

    Attachment: HDFS-1359.1.patch

Nicholas, thanks for the comments.

New patch address all but the following:
bq. You may have mentioned it somewhere earlier. What is the reason that ExtendedBlock includes
Block as a field but not extending Block?
# Datanode and Namenode store local part of block without pool ID. The ExtendedBlock is sent
only over protocols. It is optimal to build ExtendedBlock using the Block stored in NN and
# Though names Block and ExtendedBlock suggest "is a" relationship, in reality the right names
are LocalBlock and Block. Better relationship is ExtendedBlock "has a" local Block in it.

bq. In ExtendedBlock.write(..), it should call Block.write(..). Similar to ExtendedBlock.readFields(..)
This is what I want to do. However, {{ReplicaRecoveryInfo}}, which is a subclass of Block
and implements {{write()}} method. ExtendedBlock built using it and sent in InterDatanodeProtocol.updateReplicaUnderRecovery()
results in RPC issues on the server, since while serializing ReplicaRecoveryInfo is used and
while deserializing Block is used.

The alternative ExtendedBlock building its own Block using the Block supplied does not work
for Mock objects.

I am not happy about current serialization/deserialization of Block in ExtendedBlock, due
to the intimate knowledge it has about what Block is constituted of. However that is the case
in constructors, get methods any way.
