Subject [jira] [Updated] (HDFS-3438) BootstrapStandby should not require a rollEdits on active node
Date Fri, 18 May 2012 22:01:09 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3438?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Todd Lipcon updated HDFS-3438:

    Attachment: hdfs-3438.txt

Attached patch makes the following changes:
- bootstrapStandby no longer rolls the edit log on the other node. So, the other node may
be in STANDBY state and/or in safemode.
- it now uses a new RPC {{getMostRecentCheckpointTxId}} to determine which image to transfer.
I looked at using the {{txid=latest}} feature in TransferFsImage, but unfortunately the APIs
would have had to change around a fair bit in order to use this and also know _which_ txid
was fetched, etc.
- changed {{getTransactionId}} RPC to return either the most recent written ID (if active)
or the most recent applied ID (if in standby). This was necessary so we can make sure that
the new standby has access to the most up-to-date edits.

> Currently, BootstrapStandby uses a rollEdits() call on the active NN in order to determine
the most recent checkpoint and transaction ID. However, this means that you cannot bootstrap
a standby when the active NN is in safe mode -- i.e you have to start the whole cluster before
you can bootstrap a new standby. This makes the workflow to convert an existing cluster to
HA more complicated. We should allow BootstrapStandby to work even when the NN is in safe
