Subject Re: how does datanodes know where to send the block report in HA
Date Sun, 01 Feb 2015 00:23:44 GMT
The JournalNodes are only spoken to by the NameNode - they are part of
the shared edits storage. The ZKFC is a controller that talks to the
NN for failover activities. Neither of these roles care/know about

The DataNodes send the block reports to the NameNodes just like they
send their heartbeats. You don't need to set any extra properties to
allow these - if your DNs are registering onto the HDFS cluster
properly, they are also sending their block reports properly as an
automatic result. The DNs seek the NN address via the rpc-address or
servicerpc-address configs for the NNs.
