Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2354) Generalize the HAServiceProtocol interface
Date Wed, 21 Sep 2011 18:15:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2354?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13109730#comment-13109730

Justin Joseph commented on HDFS-2354:

Other considerations are

1) There had been lot of debate in HADOOP-7455 on supporting Neutral State. Even now, there
is lot of apprehension over how neutral state can be an alternative to various fencing techniques.
I don’t want to use this JIRA for discussing neutral state again; we can do the discussion
in a separate JIRA.

In this JIRA, I just want to highlight "neutral state" as an example use case for supporting
custom states in HAServiceProtocol interface.

2) As per the patch submitted for HDFS-1974, Namenode implements HAService interface. For
sure, there will be multiple implementations for HAService interface. So it is better to reconsider
this relationship introduced in HDFS-1974.

> This JIRA intends to revisit the patches committed for HADOOP-7455 and HDFS-1974 &
to provide more generic interfaces which allows alternative HA implementations to co-exist
complying with HAServiceProtocol.
> Some of the considerations are
> 1) Support life cycle methods (start*() and stop() APIs) in HAServiceProtocol
> 2) Support custom states in HAServiceProtocol
> 3) As per the patch submitted for HDFS-1974, Namenode implements HAService interface.
This needs to be reconsidered.
> I will elaborate on these points, in the form of comments below.
