Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-3833) ability to support includes/excludes list in Hbase
Date Wed, 18 May 2011 23:10:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-3833?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13035840#comment-13035840

Vishal Kathuria commented on HBASE-3833:

Hi stack,

Here is some more info on the design 
ServerManager::decommissionServer(serverInfo) f
1. first puts the node in decommissioned list so no new regions get placed on this node. decommissioned
list prevents a node with that name from joining in but doesn't kick the node out if it is
already joined in.
2. enqueues a shutdownhandler to move all the regions off this node
3. once the shutdown handler is done doing that, then it marks the node dead. It is only at
this point that the region server gets a YouAreDeadException and shuts itself down. 

So this is supposed to do gentle offload of regions. That's why I had to put a wait in my
test because the gentle offload can take some time. 
I did check in the debug logs that the regions are offloaded before the server gets shut down
- so its working for me.  Please go ahead and hack this in :)

Re Karthik's suggestion of timeout, I'll open a separate task for it. Off the top of my head,
I can't think of a simple way of implementing it

Thanks a lot for reviewing and committing this change!

> An HBase cluster currently does not have the ability to specify that the master should
accept regionservers only from a specified list. This helps preventing administrative errors
where the same machine could be included in two clusters. It also allows the administrator
to easily remove un-ssh-able machines from the cluster.
