Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-3077) Quorum-based protocol for reading and writing edit logs
Date Tue, 09 Oct 2012 03:22:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3077?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13472099#comment-13472099

Sanjay Radia commented on HDFS-3077:

bq. Currently, we only run recovery on the highest txid segment at startup. This means that
every segment is stored on at least a quorum of nodes. But it does not mean that previous
segments get replicated to all available nodes.
This wasn't obvious from HDFS-3077 document and a limitation of HDFS-3077; don't you agree?
Segment holes is operationally messy when manual recovery is necessary in the field.
Do the following two suggestions make sense?
# When a JN joins, it must have sync'ed all previous segments before accepting new writes.
# At recovery, sync missing segments (due to 1, a JN may miss several segments but the set
of segments is all at the end - there cannot be holes.)

bq. If we wanted to improve this[deal with missing segments], however, ... If we merged NewEpoch
and PrepareRecovery, that wouldn't be possible.
Todd the way segments are playing out in our protocol is scaring me; Zookeeper's ZAB avoids
all this - they recover all previous transactions. It seems that segments have complicated
our protocol significantly.
With the additional subtleties you have pointed out I am worried only a few will be able to
maintain this code.

> Currently, one of the weak points of the HA design is that it relies on shared storage
such as an NFS filer for the shared edit log. One alternative that has been proposed is to
depend on BookKeeper, a ZooKeeper subproject which provides a highly available replicated
edit log on commodity hardware. This JIRA is to implement another alternative, based on a
quorum commit protocol, integrated more tightly in HDFS and with the requirements driven only
by HDFS's needs rather than more generic use cases. More details to follow.
