Subject [jira] [Updated] (HDFS-4862) SafeModeInfo.isManual() returns true when resources are low even if it wasn't entered into manually
Date Tue, 04 Jun 2013 00:08:20 GMT

Ravi Prakash updated HDFS-4862:
-------------------------------

    Attachment: HDFS-4862.patch

Hi Kihwal! There already exists a method to check for low resources (areResourcesLow()). So
I don't understand why we need to club that in isManual. To me isManual clearly means that
the safemode was entered into manually. Moreover I could also argue that the NN should be
taken out of low-resource safemode automatically when ResourceMonitor detects adequate resources,
so it may not necessarily be a manual step. 
This is a patch which IMHO corrects these behaviors. Could you please review it?

> HDFS-1594 changed isManual to this
> {code}
> private boolean isManual() {
>   return extension == Integer.MAX_VALUE && !resourcesLow;
> }
> {code}
> One immediate impact of this is that when resources are low, the NN will throw away all
block reports from DNs. This is undesirable.
