Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2492) BlockManager cross-rack replication checks only work for ScriptBasedMapping
Date Fri, 28 Oct 2011 19:01:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2492?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13138647#comment-13138647
] 

Steve Loughran commented on HDFS-2492:
--------------------------------------

HADOOP-7777 contains all the hadoop-common code to add a new predicate to the switch mappers
(via a base class and a query method that handles mappers that are not subclasses of that);
once that is in the change to block manager will be trivial.

reviews of that patch would be welcome

> The BlockManager cross-rack replication checks only works if script files are used for
replication, not if alternate plugins provide the topology information.
> This is because the BlockManager sets its rack checking flag if there is a filename key
> {code}
> shouldCheckForEnoughRacks = conf.get(DFSConfigKeys.NET_TOPOLOGY_SCRIPT_FILE_NAME_KEY)
!= null;
> {code}
> yet this filename key is only used if the topology mapper defined by 
> {code}
> DFSConfigKeys.NET_TOPOLOGY_NODE_SWITCH_MAPPING_IMPL_KEY
> {code}
> is an instance of {{ScriptBasedMapping}}
> If any other mapper is used, the system may be multi rack, but the Block Manager will
not be aware of this fact unless the filename key is set to something non-null
