Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-7858) Improve HA Namenode Failover detection on the client
Date Tue, 14 Jul 2015 19:51:06 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-7858?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14626950#comment-14626950

Arpit Agarwal commented on HDFS-7858:
-------------------------------------

Hi [~asuresh], were you thinking of posting an updated patch. The overall approach looks good.

One comment from a quick look - RequestHedgingProxyProvider sends all requests to both NNs.
Should it skip the standby for subsequent requests?

> In an HA deployment, Clients are configured with the hostnames of both the Active and
Standby Namenodes.Clients will first try one of the NNs (non-deterministically) and if its
a standby NN, then it will respond to the client to retry the request on the other Namenode.
> If the client happens to talks to the Standby first, and the standby is undergoing some
GC / is busy, then those clients might not get a response soon enough to try the other NN.
> Proposed Approach to solve this :
> 1) Since Zookeeper is already used as the failover controller, the clients could talk
to ZK and find out which is the active namenode before contacting it.
> 2) Long-lived DFSClients would have a ZK watch configured which fires when there is a
failover so they do not have to query ZK everytime to find out the active NN
> 2) Clients can also cache the last active NN in the user's home directory (~/.lastNN)
so that short-lived clients can try that Namenode first before querying ZK
