Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-9940) Rename dfs.balancer.max.concurrent.moves to avoid confusion
Date Wed, 16 Mar 2016 03:51:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-9940?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15196705#comment-15196705
] 

John Zhuge commented on HDFS-9940:
----------------------------------

[~yzhangal], great idea if we don't have to manually config each DN for rebalance. Since we
already have {{hdfs dfsadmin -setBalancerBandwidth}}, we have 2 choices.

1) Add {{hdfs dfsadmin -setBalancerConcurrentMoves}} and {{hdfs dfsadmin -getBalancerConcurrentMoves}}

2) Balancer automatically calls Namenode API {{setBalancerBandwidth}} and newly added {{setBalancerConcurrentMoves}}
based on config values (or even command options). Obsolete {{hdfs dfsadmin -setBalancerBandwidth}}
and {{hdfs dfsadmin -getBalancerBandwidth}}.

> It is very confusing for both Balancer and Datanode to use the same property {{dfs.datanode.balance.max.concurrent.moves}}.
It is especially so for the Balancer because the property has "datanode" in the name string.
Many customers forget to set the property for the Balancer.
> Change the Balancer to use a new property {{dfs.balancer.max.concurrent.moves}}.
