             Summary: Split LayoutVerion into NamenodeLayoutVersion and DatanodeLayoutVersion

                 Key: HDFS-5754
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-5754
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: datanode, namenode
            Reporter: Tsz Wo (Nicholas), SZE


Currently, LayoutVersion defines the on-disk data format and supported features of the entire
cluster including NN and DNs.  LayoutVersion is persisted in both NN and DNs.  When a NN/DN
starts up, it checks its supported LayoutVersion against the on-disk LayoutVersion.  Also,
a DN with a different LayoutVersion than NN cannot register with the NN.

We propose to split LayoutVersion into two independent values that are local to the nodes:
- NamenodeLayoutVersion - defines the on-disk data format in NN, including the format of FSImage,
editlog and the directory structure.
- DatanodeLayoutVersion - defines the on-disk data format in DN, including the format of block
data file, metadata file, block pool layout, and the directory structure.  

The LayoutVersion check will be removed in DN registration.  If NamenodeLayoutVersion or DatanodeLayoutVersion
is changed in a rolling upgrade, then only rollback is supported and downgrade is not.
