> Make balancer's thread count configurable
> -----------------------------------------
>                 Key: HDFS-4992
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4992
>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: balancer
>            Reporter: Max Lapan
> By default, balancer has 1000 threads which moves blocks around (mover threads) and 200
threads which decide which block to move (dispatcher threads).
> On large clusters, 1000 threads creates significant load on NN, which slows down other
HDFS activity. For example, on our cluster, 'hdfs dfs -ls /' command took about 1 minute when
balancer is active. When no balancing in progress, the same command finishes in second or
> This patch makes amount of threads configurable by two new options 'dfs.balancer.moverThreads'
and 'dfs.balancer.dispatcherThreads'.
