Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-1110) Distribute the master role to HRS after ZK integration
Date Mon, 21 Mar 2011 21:20:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1110?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13009392#comment-13009392

stack commented on HBASE-1110:

How about as a step toward this ideal we bundle the master into the regionserver such that
any regionserver can become master on current master fail?  Then we'd have one 'server' type
only rather than two as we currently have.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1110
>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: Improvement

>            Priority: Critical
>             Fix For: 0.92.0
> After ZK integration, the master role can be distributed out to the HRS as group behaviors
mediated by synchronization and rendezvous points in ZK.
> - State sharing, for example load.
>    -- Load information can be shared with neighbors via ephemeral child status znodes
of a znode representing the cluster root.
>    -- Region servers can periodically walk the status nodes of their neighbors. If they
find themselves loaded relative to others, they can release regions. If they find themselves
less loaded relative to others, they can be more aggressive about finding unassigned regions
(see below).
> - Ephemeral znodes for region ownership, e.g. /hbase//<region>/<ephemeral-node>
>   -- Use a permanent child of <region> to serve as a 'dirty' flag, removed during
normal close.
> - A distributed queue for region assignment. 
>   -- When coming up, HRS can check the assignment queue for candidates.
>   -- HRS shutdown includes marking regions clean and moving them onto assignment queue.
>   -- All/any HRS can do occasional random walks over region leases looking for expired-dirty
state (when timeout causes ZK to delete the ephemeral node representing the lease), and can
helpfully move them first to a queue (+ barrier) for splitting then onto the assignment queue.
