Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2124) Namenode HA using Backup Namenode as Hot Standby
Date Tue, 05 Jul 2011 12:24:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2124?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13059856#comment-13059856

Justin Joseph commented on HDFS-2124:

1) I understand that many design decisions match with HDFS-1623. The major difference is that
HDFS-1623 adopts Shared Storage approach where as this solution uses Backup Namenode for data
synchronization from Active to Standby. (Backup Namenode approach is mentioned as the future
direction in HDFS-1623). Also, there are some differences in the way clients handle the Namenode

To avoid any conflict / duplication with HDFS-1623, I will create sub-tasks for each of the
logically independent parts in our implementation. It will help the community in reviewing
& committing those parts which compliment the implementation done for HDFS-1623.

2) Any comments on creating an additional patch for a 0.20.* version ?
