Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-3077) Quorum-based protocol for reading and writing edit logs
Date Thu, 11 Oct 2012 02:13:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3077?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13473783#comment-13473783

Sanjay Radia commented on HDFS-3077:

bq. If a JN crashes and is reformatted, then this would imply that the JN has to copy multiple
GB worth of data from another JN before it can actively start participating as a destination
for new logs. This will take quite some time.
* Correctness - unless i am missing something, as soon as one of the JN's disk is reformatted
you have lost the property that each segment is replicated at at least Q JNs.  Hence it is
best to recover all segments on this reformatted JN.
* Performance: The QJM client does parallel writes so a single slow JN will not be a problem.
Further, NN batches journal write and hence the batching will increase if QJM slows down.
* Comparison with local disk: Local disks fail much less than connections to JNs in a busy
network. Hence you are likely to see more segments and more gaps in QJM compared to local
disk based journal.

But we can discuss these further and in the worst case we can make the full-vs-partial recovery
Please proceed with the merge. Thanks for the work you put into this Jira.

> 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.
