Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-528) Add ability for safemode to wait for a minimum number of live datanodes
Date Wed, 17 Nov 2010 02:09:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-528?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12932776#action_12932776
] 

Eli Collins commented on HDFS-528:
----------------------------------

Forgot to ask, Konstantin, do you object to the latest patch?  I didn't completely follow
your earlier comment since safe mode is very tied to whether datanodes have checked in (albeit
at the block level). This option isn't cognizant of the total number, it just specifies a
lower bound so that the NN doesn't leave safemode prematurely (eg before no datanodes check
in).

> 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.
