Subject [jira] [Updated] (HDFS-3672) Expose disk-location information for blocks to enable better scheduling
Date Thu, 26 Jul 2012 00:58:35 GMT

Andrew Wang updated HDFS-3672:

    Attachment: hdfs-3672-2.patch

Newer version of the patch, addressing Todd and Tom's comments.

One unfortunate bit is that to split the NN and DN RPCs, I needed to add a subclass of {{BlockLocation}}
that hides a corresponding {{LocatedBlock}}. An array of these {{HdfsBlockLocation}} is now
returned by {{DFS#getFileBlockLocations}}, and downcasted in {{DFSClient#getDiskBlockLocations}}
to retrieve the {{LocatedBlock}}.

I took Todd's advice about {{Integer.MAX_VALUE}} for denoting invalid blocks, but turn it
a boolean accessible via {{DiskId#isValid}} before it's shown to consumers of {{FileSystem}}.

Finally, I already renamed things to {{DiskBlockLocation}} based on Tom's comment, and reused
the name {{HdfsBlockLocation}} for my {{LocatedBlock}} wrapper class. I can re-rename both
of these if we don't like them.

>          Issue Type: Improvement

> Currently, HDFS exposes on which datanodes a block resides, which allows clients to make
scheduling decisions for locality and load balancing. Extending this to also expose on which
disk on a datanode a block resides would enable even better scheduling, on a per-disk rather
than coarse per-datanode basis.
> This API would likely look similar to Filesystem#getFileBlockLocations, but also involve
a series of RPCs to the responsible datanodes to determine disk ids.
