Subject [jira] [Updated] (HDFS-3702) Add an option for NOT writing the blocks locally if there is a datanode on the same box as the client
Date Thu, 10 Mar 2016 19:34:41 GMT

Lei (Eddy) Xu updated HDFS-3702:
--------------------------------
    Attachment: HDFS-3702_Design.pdf

Hey, [~arpitagarwal] . Here is the design doc.

The basic idea is very simple: {{BlockPlacementPolicy}} will try to allocate replicas by putting
local node into excluded node first, if not able to obtain sufficient replicas, fall back
to normal way.  The rest of this patch is changing the signatures of the related functions.


Would it be OK? Thanks.

> This is useful for Write-Ahead-Logs: these files are writen for recovery only, and are
not read when there are no failures.
> Taking HBase as an example, these files will be read only if the process that wrote them
(the 'HBase regionserver') dies. This will likely come from a hardware failure, hence the
corresponding datanode will be dead as well. So we're writing 3 replicas, but in reality only
2 of them are really useful.
