Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4114) Deprecate the BackupNode and CheckpointNode in 2.0
Date Thu, 08 Nov 2012 19:26:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4114?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13493423#comment-13493423

Eli Collins commented on HDFS-4114:

What do you mean? HDFS-3625 "touched" it just in July.
I actually made BackupNode work for Hadoop-0.22. I don't wee why it is not possible for 0.23.

I mean that it hasn't seen development activity get committed aside from fixing the tests
(eg HDFS-3625), I've not seen any users try it etc, none of the active developers maintain
it, etc.

I don't see how the BackupNode is useful in its current state (just a node that you can stream
edits to). The goal for the BackupNode was to evolve from it's current state to become a StandbyNode,
but that effort is, several years later, not made much progress. Eg HDFS-2064 has been patch
available for a year on a branch that, IIUC, no one plans to release from. The only 0.22 based
system I'm aware of has since moved off of 0.22.
