Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-5496) Make replication queue initialization asynchronous
Date Wed, 11 Dec 2013 16:53:09 GMT

Kihwal Lee commented on HDFS-5496:
----------------------------------

It will be nice if the web UI says something if the replication queues are being initialized.
Showing its progress will be a plus.

> Today, initialization of replication queues blocks safe mode exit and certain HA state
transitions. For a big name space, this can take hundreds of seconds with the FSNamesystem
write lock held.  During this time, important requests (e.g. initial block reports, heartbeat,
etc) are blocked.
> The effect of delaying the initialization would be not starting replication right away,
but I think the benefit outweighs. If we make it asynchronous, the work per iteration should
be limited, so that the lock duration is capped. 
> If full/incremental block reports and any other requests that modifies block state properly
performs replication checks while the blocks are scanned and the queues populated in background,
every block will be processed. (Some may be done twice)  The replication monitor should run
even before all blocks are processed.
> This will allow namenode to exit safe mode and start serving immediately even with a
big name space. It will also reduce the HA failover latency.
