Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-7097) Allow block reports to be processed during checkpointing on standby name node
Date Tue, 25 Nov 2014 01:15:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-7097?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14223893#comment-14223893

Andrew Wang commented on HDFS-7097:

This patch has unfortunately gone a bit stale due to the RetryCache refactor. Kihwal, do you
mind rebasing? I promise to +1/commit in a timely fashion :)

> On a reasonably busy HDFS cluster, there are stream of creates, causing data nodes to
generate incremental block reports.  When a standby name node is checkpointing, RPC handler
threads trying to process a full or incremental block report is blocked on the name system's
{{fsLock}}, because the checkpointer acquires the read lock on it.  This can create a serious
problem if the size of name space is big and checkpointing takes a long time.
> All available RPC handlers can be tied up very quickly. If you have 100 handlers, it
only takes 34 file creates.  If a separate service RPC port is not used, HA transition will
have to wait in the call queue for minutes. Even if a separate service RPC port is configured,
hearbeats from datanodes will be blocked. A standby NN  with a big name space can lose all
data nodes after checkpointing.  The rpc calls will also be retransmitted by data nodes many
times, filling up the call queue and potentially causing listen queue overflow.
> Since block reports are not modifying any state that is being saved to fsimage, I propose
letting them through during checkpointing.
