Subject dfs.name.dir replication and disk not available
Date Fri, 28 Sep 2012 09:21:08 GMT

I was wondering about the safety of multiples dfs.name.dir directories.
On one hand, we want all copies to be synchronised but on the other hand if
a hard drive fail we would like the namenode still to be operational.
How does that work? I know there is the source but I was hoping for a
higher level description.



PS : I am interested about the behaviour of the last stable version ie
1.0.3. Not in the old issues that were solved.
