Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2291) HA: Checkpointing in an HA setup
Date Mon, 29 Aug 2011 22:57:37 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2291?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13093285#comment-13093285
] 

Suresh Srinivas commented on HDFS-2291:
---------------------------------------

bq. Will the standby+checkpointing node have to have twice the memory?
No

bq. I thought the main reason for running a secondary namenode on a different machine was
because checkpointing needed just as much memory as the namenode needed to maintain metadata.
The reason why we do not do it in primary is, checkpointing blocks the operations.

> We obviously need to create checkpoints when HA is enabled. One thought is to use a third,
dedicated checkpointing node in addition to the active and standby nodes. Another option would
be to make the standby capable of also performing the function of checkpointing.
