Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4985) Add storage type to the protocol and expose it in block report and block locations
Date Fri, 12 Jul 2013 21:59:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4985?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13707433#comment-13707433

Suresh Srinivas commented on HDFS-4985:

Storage type currently we are considering are Currently we are considering the following:
local Disk, remote {locak rack|remote rack} disk, local SSD, remote {local rack|remote rack}
SSD, local RAM, remote {local rack|remote rack} RAM, RAID, tape, remote storage (such as S3,
SAN) etc. We are also considering temporary/permanent replicas etc.

We do not need to nail down all the details in this jira, since adding new storage types can
be done in an API and wire compatible way.

> With HDFS-2880 datanode now supports storage abstraction. This is to add storage type
in to the protocol. Datanodes currently report blocks per storage. Storage would include storage
type attribute. Namenode also exposes the storage type of a block in block locations.
