Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-1567) DFSClient should retry reading from all datanodes in round robin fashion
Date Tue, 04 Jan 2011 06:47:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1567?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12977145#action_12977145

dhruba borthakur commented on HDFS-1567:
----------------------------------------

Just to elaborate, the above is applicable only for *retries* and retries occur when the client
encounters errors while reading a block from a datanode.

> In the current implementation, the DFSClient retries the same datanode a few times (for
reading) before marking the datanode as "dead" and moving on to trying the read-request from
the next replica. This introduces additional delay when the first candidate datanode was really
out-of-service. Instead, it might be beneficial (for performance) to make the DFSClient retry
all datanode replicas one after another (while keeping the total number of retries per datanode
the same as now); if all the replicas were tried unsuccessfully once, then loop back to retrying
the first one and so on.
