Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2004) Enable replicating and pinning files to a data node
Date Sun, 05 Jun 2011 19:38:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2004?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13044613#comment-13044613

Aaron T. Myers commented on HDFS-2004:

@Allen, what exactly are you vetoing, and for what reasons? It seems to me that a veto here
may be a little premature, given that so far there is no code posted, or even an exact design
settled upon.

In particular, several commenters have already said that "pinning" a block to a particular
DN is probably not feasible, but that "requesting" the NN move a block to a particular DN
may be doable, and would be very handy for HBase. Are you vetoing the former, the latter,
or both?

created here will allow pinning the file to any DataNode.
