Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-528) Add ability for safemode to wait for a minimum number of live datanodes
Date Wed, 17 Nov 2010 01:09:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-528?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12932754#action_12932754

dhruba borthakur commented on HDFS-528:
---------------------------------------

I am +1 on the config option proposed by Todd. I think it will help some newbie administrators
in administering their cluster.

On a related note, I would like to make the logic that makes the NN exist safemode be pluggable.
This is helpful when files are raided using HDFS RAID. I opened HDFS-1501.

> When starting up a fresh cluster programatically, users often want to wait until DFS
is "writable" before continuing in a script. "dfsadmin -safemode wait" doesn't quite work
for this on a completely fresh cluster, since when there are 0 blocks on the system, 100%
of them are accounted for before any DNs have reported.
> This JIRA is to add a command which waits until a certain number of DNs have reported
as alive to the NN.
