Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-7770) Need document for storage type label of data node storage locations under dfs.data.dir
Date Fri, 24 Apr 2015 06:42:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-7770?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14510553#comment-14510553

Akira AJISAKA commented on HDFS-7770:

Thanks [~xyao] for the patch. Two comments:
+    4.  A datanode storage location /grid/dn/ram0 on ARCHIVE should be configured with `[RAM_DISK]file:///grid/dn/ram0`
1. ARCHIVE should be RAM_DISK.

+    The default storage type of a datanode storage location will be DISK if it does not have
a storage type tagged explicitly.
2. I'm thinking it's better to document how to tag a storage type explicitly.

>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 2.6.0

> HDFS-2832 enables support for heterogeneous storages in HDFS, which allows DN as a collection
of storages with different types. However, I can't find document on how to label different
storage types from the following two documents. I found the information from the design spec.
It will be good we document this for admins and users to use the related Archival storage
and storage policy features. 
> http://hadoop.apache.org/docs/r2.6.0/hadoop-project-dist/hadoop-hdfs/ArchivalStorage.html
> http://hadoop.apache.org/docs/r2.6.0/hadoop-project-dist/hadoop-hdfs/hdfs-default.xml
> This JIRA is opened to add document for the new storage type labels. 
> 1. Add an example under ArchivalStorage.html#Configuration section:
> {code}
>   <property>
>     <name>dfs.data.dir</name>
>     <value>[DISK]file:///hddata/dn/disk0,  [SSD]file:///hddata/dn/ssd0,[ARCHIVE]file:///hddata/dn/archive0</value>
>   </property>
> {code}
> 2. Add a short description of [DISK/SSD/ARCHIVE/RAM_DISK] options in hdfs-default.xml#dfs.data.dir
and document DISK as storage type if no storage type is labeled in the data node storage location
