Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-6300) Shouldn't allows to run multiple balancer simultaneously
Date Fri, 08 May 2015 21:46:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6300?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14535639#comment-14535639

Tsz Wo Nicholas Sze commented on HDFS-6300:

Rakesh, thanks for filing this bug.  It was a good catch.

The real fix is "fs.create(idPath, false);".  The new checkAnotherBalancerIsRunning() method
is for fail-fast.  Some minor comments.

- For the test, the first Balancer may finish and exist before the second balancer start.
 So how about simply creating the file but not run the first balancer?  I.e.
//testManyBalancerSimultaneously() t
      FileSystem fs = cluster.getFileSystem(0);
      final FSDataOutputStream out = fs.create(Balancer.BALANCER_ID_PATH, false);
- Could you not renaming out to fsout in checkAndMarkRunning().

> Javadoc of "Balancer.java" says, it will not allow to run second balancer if the first
one is in progress. But I've noticed multiple can run together and balancer.id implementation
is not safe guarding.
