Subject Re: What happens to data nodes when name node has failed for long time?
Date Sun, 14 Dec 2014 22:28:14 GMT
I found the terminology of primary and secondary to be a bit confusing in
describing operation after a failure scenario. Perhaps it is helpful to
think that the Hadoop instance is guided to select a node as primary for
normal operation. If that node fails, then the backup becomes the new
primary. In analyzing traffic it appears that the restored node does not
become primary again until the whole instance restarts. I myself would
welcome clarification on this observed behavior.
