Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-3405) Checkpointing should use HTTP POST or PUT instead of GET-GET to send merged fsimages
Date Sat, 08 Feb 2014 03:04:22 GMT

Vinay commented on HDFS-3405:
-----------------------------

I found this RFC [link|http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1867] telling about the uploading of
file using multipart data.

> As Todd points out in [this comment|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3404?focusedCommentId=13272986&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#comment-13272986],
the current scheme for a checkpointing daemon to upload a merged fsimage file to an NN is
to issue an HTTP get request to tell the target NN to issue another GET request back to the
checkpointing daemon to retrieve the merged fsimage file. There's no fundamental reason the
checkpointing daemon can't just use an HTTP POST or PUT to send back the merged fsimage file,
rather than the double-GET scheme.
