Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-6441) Add ability to exclude/include few datanodes while balancing

Yu Li commented on HDFS-6441:
-----------------------------

Hi [~szetszwo] [~aagarwal] and [~benoyantony],

Sorry for the late response, really didn't expect a response after 1 month or so :-P

Sure I don't mind if we contribute the feature here, I'm glad if only the feature could be
added, no matter how we get it done. :-)

About the patch, I could see the advantage of using a file to pass the node-list of include/exclude
nodes especially when the list is long, meanwhile I'd say it would be great if we also support
passing the servers through parameter, which is much easier to invoke the tool from another
program(so we could still complete the HDFS-6009 work :-))

> In some use cases, it is desirable to ignore a few data nodes  while balancing. The administrator
should be able to specify a list of data nodes in a file similar to the hosts file and the
balancer should ignore these data nodes while balancing so that no blocks are added/removed
on these nodes.
> Similarly it will be beneficial to specify that only a particular list of datanodes should
be considered for balancing.
