Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2731) Autopopulate standby name dirs if they're empty
Date Fri, 30 Dec 2011 01:05:30 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2731?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13177486#comment-13177486

Eli Collins commented on HDFS-2731:

Wrt #1, if we get the image from the NN and the edits from the shared dir, are we sure they'll
always match, eg what if we're rolling at the same time (the other NN could be primary and
active)? I was thinking asking for both from the primary would mean we always get matched
sets and therefore don't need to worry about races.

Wrt #2, yea, I thinking we should be explicit (don't have to worry about eg the shared dir
being populated by neither NN having populated name dirs, which we know won't be the case
if the other is active), but on 2nd thought I think your suggestion is better.

> To setup a SBN we currently format the primary then manually copy the name dirs to the
SBN. The SBN should do this automatically. Specifically, on NN startup, if HA with a shared
edits dir is configured and populated, if the SBN has empty name dirs it should downloads
the image and log from the primary (as an optimization it could copy the logs from the shared
dir). If the other NN is still in standby then it should fail to start as it does currently.
