Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-1623) High Availability Framework for HDFS NN
Date Mon, 25 Jul 2011 15:40:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1623?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13070557#comment-13070557
] 

Yang Yang commented on HDFS-1623:
---------------------------------

in the design docs, why is "fencing" needed? 
if the namenode uses ZK for leader election, it needs to have a Watcher on the ephemeral node,
if the namenode loses its leader status, the Watcher should return "disconnect" or "node removed"
event, so that the namenode can naturally shutdown itself. doesn't this achieve what is mentioned
in the "fencing" paragraph?
