Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2913) HA: Need a way to shutdown the Name Node
Date Wed, 08 Feb 2012 00:01:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2913?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13202997#comment-13202997

Todd Lipcon commented on HDFS-2913:

Currently it is meant to do a "fail fast" shutdown -- i.e System.exit(1) after logging a FATAL
message. A graceful shutdown would be a nice optimization, but HDFS-2912 should be treated
as a bug that the expected fail-fast behavior isn't being triggered. Doing a graceful shutdown
after hitting an unknown state is likely to be non-trivial

> Ideally, NameNode.stop() needs to be called because it will change the HA state and shutdown
all services. NameNode reference is not available anywhere. Hence it is not possible to shutdown
the name node gracefully.
> A possible solution could be to have a Service interface that gets passed down to components
like FSNameSystem, via which they can inform the NameNode about irrecoverable errors. NameNode
could then decide to shutdown.
