Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-395) DFS Scalability: Incremental block reports
Date Tue, 12 Jul 2011 16:28:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-395?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13063979#comment-13063979

Tomasz Nykiel commented on HDFS-395:

Todd, please correct me if I am wrong, but I don't see that this is happening in FSDataset.invalidate().

The previous patch was renaming the block and metafile files, and notifying the NN immediately
(please see the discussion above).
If the files were moved to "toBeDeleted" or were renamed, then, of course, we do not need
to wait.

> I have a cluster that has 1800 datanodes. Each datanode has around 50000 blocks and sends
a block report to the namenode once every hour. This means that the namenode processes a block
report once every 2 seconds. Each block report contains all blocks that the datanode currently
hosts. This makes the namenode compare a huge number of blocks that practically remains the
same between two consecutive reports. This wastes CPU on the namenode.
> The problem becomes worse when the number of datanodes increases.
> One proposal is to make succeeding block reports (after a successful send of a full block
report) be incremental. This will make the namenode process only those blocks that were added/deleted
in the last period.
