Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-7344) [umbrella] Erasure Coding worker and support in DataNode
Date Tue, 15 Dec 2015 07:49:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-7344?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15057515#comment-15057515

GAO Rui commented on HDFS-7344:

[~zhz] Thank you very much for your information. I am trying to draft a design and then implement
{{Converter}} which is mentioned in HDFS-7717. I think maybe we should design as {{Converter}}
distribute conversation tasks to several {{ErasureCodingWorker}}, then actually these {{ErasureCodingWorker}}
implement conversation tasks. Could you share your opinions?  Currently, if put Erasure Coding
to product clusters, {{Converter}} should be among the most used functions. Lots of replication
files would be converted to EC files. Without {{Converter}}, we can only use distcp. {{Converter}}
should could be much more efficient, right?

>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>          Components: datanode

> According to HDFS-7285 and the design, this handles DataNode side extension and related
support for Erasure Coding. More specifically, it implements {{ECWorker}}, which reconstructs
lost blocks (in striping layout).
> It generally needs to restore BlockGroup and schema information from coding commands
from NameNode or other entities, and construct specific coding work to execute. The required
block reader, writer, either local or remote, encoder and decoder, will be implemented separately
as sub-tasks. 
> This JIRA will track all the linked sub-tasks, and is responsible for general discussions
and integration for ECWorker. It won't resolve until all the related tasks are done.
