Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-1477) Make NameNode Reconfigurable.
Date Thu, 29 Oct 2015 20:43:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1477?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14981231#comment-14981231

Arpit Agarwal commented on HDFS-1477:

Hi [~xiaobingo], thanks for taking this up. My comments on the v5 patch:
# FsNameSystem and DatanodeManager need implement Reconfigurable, since their Reconfigurable
methods are only invoked via NameNode.
# What does getNewConf() do? Looks like it just constructs a new config object by re-reading
the config files? There should have been a Javadoc on the base class method, perhaps we can
add one now.
# Can we just skip implementing reconfiguration via the servlet? A better approach is to have
the daemon re-read its config files like HDFS-6808 (which you pointed out to me offline :-).
Looks like you will need a new RPC call and support on the client. Also it would be good to
log the reconfiguration request in the hdfs audit log.
# Nitpicks: Fix indentation in DatanodeManager#reconfigurePropertyImpl.
# {{#reconfigurePropertyImpl}} - get {{namesystem.writeLock()}} outside the {{try}} block.

Other suggestions for separate subtasks.
# The list of reconfigurable properties should not be hard-coded. We can add an annotation
to the reconfigurable properties.
# Add {{ReconfigurableBase}} support for atomic updates, i.e. all or no changes take effect.
# Documentation.

would allow us to change certain configuration properties without restarting the name node.
