Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4754) Add an API in the namenode to mark a datanode as stale
Date Sun, 11 Aug 2013 22:44:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4754?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13736452#comment-13736452

Suresh Srinivas commented on HDFS-4754:

Early comments. DFS_NAMENODE_MARK_STALE_MAX_DURATION_KEY and semantics of marking a node until
certain period, why is this required? Datanode will automatically be marked non-stale on a
heartbeat right? Also I am not sure this API should be in HdfsAdmin API. Can you describe
which API will be used by HBase and where will HdfsAdmin be used?

>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: hdfs-client, namenode
>            Reporter: Nicolas Liochon
>            Assignee: Nicolas Liochon
>            Priority: Critical
>             Fix For: 3.0.0, 2.1.1-beta
>         Attachments: 4754.v1.patch, 4754.v2.patch, 4754.v4.patch, 4754.v4.patch
> There is a detection of the stale datanodes in HDFS since HDFS-3703, with a timeout,
defaulted to 30s.
> There are two reasons to add an API to mark a node as stale even if the timeout is not
yet reached:
>  1) ZooKeeper can detect that a client is dead at any moment. So, for HBase, we sometimes
start the recovery before a node is marked staled. (even with reasonable settings as: stale:
20s; HBase ZK timeout: 30s
>  2) Some third parties could detect that a node is dead before the timeout, hence saving
us the cost of retrying. An example or such hw is Arista, presented here by [~tsuna] http://tsunanet.net/~tsuna/fsf-hbase-meetup-april13.pdf,
and confirmed in HBASE-6290.
> As usual, even if the node is dead it can comeback before the 10 minutes limit. So I
would propose to set a timebound. The API would be
> namenode.markStale(String ipAddress, int port, long durationInMs);
> After durationInMs, the namenode would again rely only on its heartbeat to decide.
> Thoughts?
> If there is no objections, and if nobody in the hdfs dev team has the time to spend some
time on it, I will give it a try for branch 2 & 3.
