Subject [jira] [Created] (HAMA-998) Consider making failure detector plugable with incubator-gossip

Edward Capriolo created HAMA-998:

             Summary: Consider making failure detector plugable with incubator-gossip
                 Key: HAMA-998
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HAMA-998
             Project: Hama
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Edward Capriolo

I have spoken with [~chl501] who worked on the failure detector in Hama (https://github.com/apache/hama/tree/master/core/src/main/java/org/apache/hama/monitor/fd).
I am working on the Gossip podling:  http://gossip.incubator.apache.org/. We are wrapping
up our first release. I am interested in evangelizing Gossip and I believe the is a fit here.

I can see the FD code inside Hama has not been touched in a while. It is great that the code
is stable! 

Hama could leverage apache-gossip. This would shrink the size and complexity of the Hama codevbase.
Also Hama would benefit from what will hopefully be more frequent updates and features coming
in incubator-gossip.

I understand that Hama is a large, established, complex project. I would like to attempt to
run Hama using incubator-gossip. I would make the choice a user configuration until we establish
that incubator-gossip is reliable for Hama and the committers are comfortable. 

I wanted to feel out the Hama community and see if this proposal is something you are interested
in before I dig into the specifcs
