Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2141) Remove NameNode roles Active and Standby
Date Mon, 18 Jul 2011 23:16:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2141?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13067382#comment-13067382
] 

Suresh Srinivas commented on HDFS-2141:
---------------------------------------

The only concern I have is - the metrics is started with current NamenodeRole.ACTIVE. This
one changes it to NamenodeRole.NAMENODE. Hence I was waiting for committing this to HDFS-1623
branch. The metrics thing would become clear as we implement more of HA functionality. Any
comments?

> We might even consider merging HdfsConstants.NodeType and HdfsConstants.NameNodeRole,
since being a DN is certainly mutually exclusive with all of the NameNodeRoles, but that should
probably be done as a separate JIRA.
I like this. We could just have NodeType with NameNode, DataNode, Backup and Checkpointer?

> In HDFS, following roles are supported in NameNodeRole: ACTIVE, BACKUP, CHECKPOINT and
STANDBY.
> Active and Standby are the state of the NameNode. While Backup and CheckPoint are the
name/role of the daemons that are started. This mixes up the run time state of NameNode with
the daemon role. I propose changing the NameNodeRole to: NAMENODE, BACKUP, CHECKPOINT. HDFS-1974
will introduce the states active and standby to the daemon that is running in the role NAMENODE.
