Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4056) Always start the NN's SecretManager
Date Tue, 30 Oct 2012 04:50:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4056?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13486643#comment-13486643

Kan Zhang commented on HDFS-4056:
---------------------------------

bq. You need a technical reason for the -1. I agree with Daryn that the code will be easier
if we always have the secret manager. The overhead is minimal in all cases, especially if
you don't use tokens.

To start a daemon thread when you know you won't be using it (or worse, tokens are issued
but never used) is not only sloppy coding, but also confusing and may lead to more bugs. In
the parent JIRA, we have agreed on trying an approach where SIMPLE is kept as is and SASL
PLAIN is added for testing. See HADOOP-8779 for more discussions. If we go with that approach,
there is no need for this patch. And we should also revert HADOOP-8783 and HADOOP-8784.

> To support the ability to use tokens regardless of whether kerberos is enabled, the NN's
secret manager should always be started.
