Subject Re: Namenode HA and data loss
Date Tue, 13 Jan 2015 23:17:52 GMT
Yes, if this is an HDFS cluster deployed with HA using the Quorum Journal
Manager, then it is protected against data loss.  This documentation page
describes the configuration and how the architecture achieves it.


There can be a small risk of an HDFS client reading stale data from an old
NameNode that still thinks it's active.  To mitigate against this, you can
configure fencing methods to stop the old NameNode.  For more information
on this, see "dfs.ha.fencing.methods" in the same document.
