Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2983) Relax the build version check to permit rolling upgrades within a release
Date Mon, 09 Apr 2012 21:51:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2983?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13250211#comment-13250211

Todd Lipcon commented on HDFS-2983:

+    if (!dnVersion.equals(nnVersion)) {
+      LOG.info("Reported DataNode version '" + dnVersion + "' does not match " +
+          "NameNode version '" + nnVersion + "' but is within acceptable " +
+          "limits. Note: This is normal during a rolling upgrade.");
+    }
Can you also please include the DN IP address in this log message?

- Nice lengthy javadoc on VersionUtil.compareVersions. Can you please add something like:
"This method of comparison is similar to the method used by package versioning systems like
deb and RPM"

and also maybe give one example of what you mean? eg add "For example, Hadoop 0.3 < Hadoop
0.20 even though naive string comparison would consider it larger."

Otherwise, looks great. +1 from my standpoint. Konstantin/Sanjay - can you please comment
regarding the above discussion? While I agree that there are more improvements to be made,
I don't think this patch will hurt things. Or, if you are nervous about it, can we commit
this with a flag to allow rolling upgrade if the operator permits it?

> Currently the version check for DN/NN communication is strict (it checks the exact svn
revision or git hash, Storage#getBuildVersion calls VersionInfo#getRevision), which prevents
rolling upgrades across any releases. Once we have the PB-base RPC in place (coming soon to
branch-23) we'll have the necessary pieces in place to loosen this restriction, though perhaps
it takes another 23 minor release or so before we're ready to commit to making the minor versions
